Far East Magazine published April 2012

Fr Pat Scully, of Lettir,Glenbeigh,Co.Kerry,died in the Dalgan Nursing Home on 18th January 2012. Born on 3rd December 1929,he was educated at Lettir NS,CBS Cahirciveen,CBS Sullivan's Quay,Cork, and St Brendan's,Killarney. He came to Dalgan in 1947 and was ordained priest on 21st December,1953.

Pat was assigned to Japan in 1954. After language studies he was sent to the Chiba and later to the Wakayama area. From 1970 to 1976 he served as Regional Director of Japan. He worked in parishes of all four dioceses,Tokyo,Osaka,Fukuoka,and Yokohama before returning to the Irish Region in 1998. Loss of memory prevented him from continuing pastoral work in Ireland, and he entered the Dalgan Nursing Home.

Pat had a deep interest in people. He enjoyed being with others,was cheerful,obliging and approachable. He seemed easygoing and unhurried,but was in fact a tireless and effective worker. His last few appointments were to to parishes split by divisions.Pat accepted each appointment and worked quietly to heal the divisions. We rejoice with him as he goes to receive the fruit of his labours.

May he rest in peace
