Last Fall, Mr. Frank Demuynck, a longtime board member of SFX Bruges, was honored by the Diocese of Bruges and the Association of Catholic Schools for his nearly 25 years of service to Catholic education in Flanders. Frank was honored at a celebration on October 22.
Brother Roger Demon was present to help honor Mr. Demuynck. As a token of appreciation from the Diocese of Bruges, he was presented with a small but very beautiful statue of Saint Donatianus, the patron saint of Bruges. As part of the celebration there was also a musical interlude by a classical pianist and guitarist. In Frank’s remarks at the end of the festivity he spoke gratefully for the contribution of the Xaverian Brothers to Catholic education in Flanders and the sale of our land in Sint-Michiels so that Catholic higher education could return to Flanders.
Frank remains a wonderful friend to the Brothers in Bruges and is known and appreciated by the Brothers in the U.S. and Congo as well.
