2022 – Jan Paul ten Bruggencate dies at age of 87

Last Friday, 21th of September, on our last day of our 2018 pilgrimage to Athos, my good friend Jean Paul ten Bruggencate died at the blessed age of 87. He visited Athos many times and usually stayed at Maroudá or Karakallou. His first visit to the Holy Mountain was as early as 1967. Here is the announcement in NRC newspaper this morning (in Dutch). Maybe other pilgrims can inform father Makarios of Maroudá  and father Pachomios of Karakallou ? Many thanks.

May he rest in peace.

    This is what father Nikon wrote to me in an e-mail:

    May God receive the soul of good Jean Paul.
    We remember him with a lot of love.
    Gerondas Nikon and community, Skete Xenophontos.
