Fr. Peter Matthew was a person known for his pastoral zeal, missionary enthusiasm and love for the poor. He served most of his life in the North Arcot region as parish priest, rector, administrator and dean of studies. In the last 15 years he had been at the Sacred Heart Church, Polur. When Fr Vigano launched ``Project Africa`` in 1980, he was one of the first to volunteer for the missions. In fact, he was the seniormost Salesian in the first batch of 15 who went to Africa from the various Indian provinces. He served as parish priest at Mafinga, Iringa diocese, in Tanzania, from 1980 to 1985. He returned to India in 1985 due to health reasons.
The funeral mass will be celebrated at Don Bosco, Tirupattur on 6th February 2012 at 3 pm.
May God rest his soul in his abiding love!
