Father Harold Craig, SJ
Father Harold Craig, S.J., died in Ireland on 31 October 1985, aged 84.
He worked in Hong Kong, mainly as a teacher in Wah Yan College, until 1941. After the Japanese occupation he went to India, flying the hazardous route then known as ‘across the Hump.’ He worked in India till after the end of the war. He then worked in parishes in Lancashire, England, for over a quarter of a century. About a decade ago he transferred to a rural parish in the Irish midlands, and did not give up this work there till after his 83 birthday. His retirement lasted less than three months.
Few people in Hong Kong will remember Father Craig after a
gap of over forty years, but that few will remember him vividly. He was original
in thought, word and action. Such men are not easily forgotten.
