There will be Requiem Masses today at 10 am at Citadel, and at 5 pm at SIGA.

The Funeral Mass and Burial will be at 10 am tomorrow, 18 August 2019, at Don Bosco Tirupattur.

In the history of the Salesians in India, Father Bout is the oldest ever priest and continues to be an active member of the Salesian community at the Provincial  House, Citadel in Chennai. Hailing from an Anglo-Indian family from Tangasseri (Quilon) in Kerala and son of John Henry Bout, Cedric was born on November 11, 1918, a historic day on which the First World War ended with the Armistice. Cedric is the fourth of six children and his eldest sister Mary Bout is a Salesian Sister (FMA).

Cedric did his schooling at Presentation Sisters and St. Joseph's, both in Vepery and completed his school education at St. Mary's European High School in George Town. He then went on to do his B. A. in Science from Loyola College where he was drawn towards a religious life. The then Parish Priest Father Theodore introduced Cedric to Father Joseph Carreno SDB, the Rector of the Salesian House in Tirupattur who invited him to spend a few days to experience the Salesian way of life before making up his mind.

Cedric Bout was ordained a Priest by Archbishop Louis Mathias SDB on April 2, 1949 at St. Mary's Cathedral, Madras. The rest, as they say, is history, which continues to be written in the life and times of Father Cedric Bout.

May his soul rest in peace.
