The League Mourns the Death of Co-founder and Former Exner Award Recipient Fr. Alphonse de Valk

Fr. de Valk was a passionate defender of life, and of free speech, and stood for a robust understanding of freedom of conscience and religion. Fr. de Valk was born on Easter Sunday, 1932.  He died during the Easter Octave, and just prior to Divine Mercy Sunday.  His witness to the Gospel of Life was always centred on his relationship with Jesus Christ, in his case, through the priesthood.  May he be richly rewarded with the promises of the same Christ, our Lord.
