IN MEMORIAM - FR. ARTHUR HERVET, A.A. PDF Print E-mail

Fr.-Arthur-Hervet-AA-1938-2020

Father Arthur Hervet A.A. (Nov 11, 1938 – Nov 23, 2020) spent much of his Assumptionist life serving the poor in various capacities. For around twenty years he was chaplain on the chapel-boat “Je Sers” (I Serve), moored in the town of Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, just outside of Paris. There he founded “La Pierre Blanche,” a nonprofit association that serves those without access to housing, food and healthcare. In 2006 Fr. Arthur was transferred to Lille, a city close to France’s border with Belgium. He became well-known in his fight for the protection and wellbeing of the city’s Roma, a vulnerable immigrant population with a significant presence in France.

We pray for the repose of his soul as we remember the profound witness he gave to the dignity of every human life.

This feature article (in French) gives excellent insight into Fr. Arthur’s life of service: https://www.lepelerin.com/foi-et-spiritualite/les-grandes-figures-de-l-eglise/lettre-au-pere-arthur-cure-des-roms/?fbclid=IwAR22c6OFK7hOCezCSp5hB6tES8ZdQz9WcxOhiNK7djnLz5VkbB8mYcCemEs
