His Eminence Anthony's obituary

It is with profound sorrow that the Archdiocese of Kuala Lumpur announces the demise of Malaysia’s first cardinal, His Eminence Anthony Soter Cardinal Fernandez, who has peacefully passed on Wed, 28th October at 12.35pm at St Francis Xavier Home for the Elderly in Cheras.

His Eminence, who was the second archbishop of the Archdiocese of Kuala Lumpur, was diagnosed with tongue cancer in November 2019 and had been receiving palliative care at the St Francis Xavier Home, where he had been residing since 2013.

On behalf of the Archdiocese, His Grace Most Reverend Julian Leow, the Archbishop of Kuala Lumpur would like to express a special thank you to the Little Sisters of the Poor, Archdiocesan staff, clergy companions, caregivers, members of his private medical team, doctors and staff of Assunta Hospital and University Malaya Medical Centre for their care and compassion during His Eminence’s ailment.

We invite the clergy, religious and faithful to remember His Eminence Anthony Soter Cardinal Fernandez in your Masses and prayers.

Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
