With deep sorrow and pain we wish to convey to you the news of the sudden passing away of  Father Joachim Li, OP, on June 27, 2018, in Anzio-Neptuno, Italy.

Fr. Joachim had finished the studies of archivist and paleography at the Vatican and was seriously working in the doctoral thesis on History of the Church at the Gregorian University in Rome.

His sudden death occurred when he was enjoying a free day at the seashore with some friars and friends of the Holy Trinity community in Rome.

Fr. Joachim had been appointed Socius of the Prior Provincial at the last Provincial Chapter in August 2017 and was expected to assume his office on December after his graduation.  

We remember Fr. Joachim as a very capable, studious and well-prepared friar, with a good character, fraternal attitude and full of kindness towards the brothers.

He had achieved a high level of Latin and spoked other languages such as: Spanish, English, French and Mandarin.

We pray to God for his relatives and the friars of the Convent of the Most Holy Trinity in Rome, that faith may comfort their sorrow and strengthen them to overcome the sorrow of his untimely death.
