“Fr Coghlan back to the day when we first met was the Form One admission interview. Thank you for bringing me to Wah Yan. Thank you for your guidance with freedom and loves all along. I will miss you … no matter where you are. RIP.”

Nelson Chen
“I am honored to be one of your students. Thank you for your guidance.”

Lawrence Tsui
“My son and his cousin could have been the last baptism at the Fathers’ Chapel before it was demolished for the new building. Fr. Coghlan agreed to baptize them when we did not want to wait for the annual baptism day of the parish. We didn’t want to wait long for the empowerment of grace from the Sacrament. Thank you, Father. Happy Landing.”

Chris Wong
“Eternal rest grant unto Fr. Coghlan, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him.”
