August 5 – PLACES OF INHUMATION IN FRANCE

PLACES OF INHUMATION IN FRANCE

On 5 August 1896, Br. Seraphin, of the community of Challans, was visiting the neighbouring community of Saint-Jean-de-Monts with his confreres; taken sick during a meal he went out into the garden and died there suddenly. On 5 August 1897, Br. Chrysophore drowned in the river in Pont-l’Abbe. On 5 August 1931, Br. Valentin­ Marie died of an infectious cold at Saint-Germain l’Herm. On 5 August 1939, Br. Ronan who was riding his bicycle in the streets of Quimper was knocked down by a car and died on the spot. None of these four Brothers was brought to the cemetery of Saint­ Laurent. They were all buried in the respective places: the first at Saint-Jean-de-Monts, the third at Saint-Germain l’Herm, the other two at Pont-I’Abbe. Today it is possible to take the bodies to far away places like La Hilliere, but it was not the case in the past. Moreover, other Brothers, for various reasons (See 6 August), were buried close to their families. So there are many Brothers buried in the four comers of France.

The following list of parishes does not include the Brothers killed in action during the two world wars, nor of those buried in the community cemeteries of Saint­ Laurent, La Hilliere and LaPeyrouse (See 7 July).
