Sudden Death of a Young SSPX Priest in the Philippines

June 14, 2021

A young priest of the Society of Saint Pius X was unexpectedly called to God, following a short illness, in the priory of Manila, Philippines.

Fr. Daniel Yagan died of pneumonia, a condition that the doctors did not deem to be serious on Monday, June 7, 2021.

A Filipino, he had been formed at the Holy Cross Seminary, located in Goulburn, Australia. He was 40 years old.

A late vocation, he was ordained on December 5, 2020 in South Africa by Bishop de Galarreta, as the ordinations were unable to take place in Australia due to the health situation.

He had just completed the first six months of his priesthood.

We entrust him to the prayers of the faithful, with Fr. Régis Babinet, who died last Friday of Covid-19, at the age of 75, in the 42nd year of his priesthood. He will be buried this Wednesday, June 9.

May they rest in peace.
