Tributes are being paid to long serving Brother Anselm McCaffrey, a member of the Mentone community, who passed away early this morning after a long battle with cancer.
Br Anselm was born in Melbourne on 18th February 1928 and took his final vows as a De La Salle Brother in 1953.
He served in many parts of Australia and New Zealand, including lengthy periods in Ashfield, Lakemba and Lithgow in New South Wales, East Bentleigh in Victoria and Blenheim and New Plymouth in New Zealand.
The thoughts and prayers of all Lasallians are with Br Anselm's family and the Brothers of the Mentone community.
May he rest in peace.
Brother Visitor David Hawke says funeral details will be provided when they have been finalised.
