A champion for the poor and underprivileged, Father Kevin Barr has passed away.

Head of the Catholic Church Archbishop Peter Chong confirmed that God called Father Barr into his Kingdom at 1.10 pm today at The Home of Compassion.

“I visited Father Barr at around 11 am and stayed with him with Sister Esther Powell and Emie Francis. We thanked Father Barr for his service and gift to Fiji. We helped him pass from this world to God.

“I thanks Sisters Emi and Esther who gently and compassionately accompanied Father Barr to cross from this world to God’s Kingdom. I left Father Barr at around 12.15 pm.  He probably was holding to let me go before he also left for God.”

Sister Esther farewelled the Australian-born Catholic priest, “Go Father Barr to your God!”

Archbishop Chong thanked Father Barr for his love and service especially to the poor and vulnerable.

The funeral arrangements will be announced later.
