Social justice advocate Father Kevin Barr has passed away.

Archbishop Peter Chong of the Catholic Church in Fiji announced the late Father Barr’s death on social media this evening.

Father Barr passed away at 1.10pm today at The Home of Compassion.

“I visited Fr. Barr at around 11am and stayed with him with Srs Esther Powell and Emie Francis.”

“We thanked Fr. Barr for his service and gift to Fiji,” said Archbishop Chong.

“We helped him pass from this world to God,” he said.

“I left Fr Barr at around 12.15. He probably was holding to let me go before he also left for God. Go Fr. Barr to your God.”

Archbishop Chong said funeral arrangements will be announced later.
