In this September-October issue of our newsletter, we share something of the life of Fr João Felgueiras SJ, a Portuguese Jesuit missionary who arrived in what was then called Portuguese Timor in 1971.

Forty-five years later, Fr Felgueiras remains as dedicated to the people of his adopted country as when he refused to leave Timor during the conflict in the 1970s. Timor-Leste President Taur Matan Ruak awarded Fr Felgueiras a medal of merit on June 10, a day after the priest’s 95th birthday, in recognition of his contribution to the building of the nation.
