Frs John van de Laar and Stuart Allen were involded in a tragic accident in Belgium last week. Both are former students of Mill Hill who opted to join the diocese of Den Bosch during the course of their studies.
Fr John van der Laar lies seriously wounded in hospital.
Fr Stuart Allan died yesterday – Monday – of the wounds sustained because of the accident.
Fr Stuart Allen was ordained in 1992. He served as parish priest of Waalwijk (Netherlands) for 12 years.
A serious illness (Parkinson) made it impossible for him to continue in active pastoral service.
He was seriously handicapped and confined to a wheelchair.
