Father Albert Huart died during the night, on the 5 September 2018. In the evening he had a fatal fall in his room of the La Colombiere residence, and was immediately taken to the hospital where he died a few hours later. Though (by his own account) he felt weaker day after day Fr. Huart kept to his regular routine of meals and Eucharist with the community. His fall was probably due to a cardiac failure. May he rest in peace.
Fr. Huart was 93 years old and had spent 75 years in the Society. He was vice-Principal of St. Xavier's College, Calcutta for about 25 years, was Rector of St. Xavier's College, Calcutta and also Rector of Dhyan Ashram (formation house and retreat house), Calcutta and he was Socius to the provincial for about 12 years. He was very much sought after for spiritual direction, retreats and talks. A man always cheerful and fully alive, deeply spiritual and very active ready for offer his services till his death. May the Lord give him eternal rest. A loyal and faithful servant of the Lord.
MAY HIS SOUL REST IN PEACE
