Fr Vin (Michael Joseph) Ambrose, 1913 - 1988

Vin – baptised Michael Joseph – was born in Tralee on the 16th of October 1913. He received his primary education, first at the Presentation Convent, Tralee from 1917 to 1919 and completed it at the C.B.S. Tralee from 1919 to 1926. He went on to do his secondary studies in the same school, completing in 1933. In that year he entered Kiltegan, and was ordained in December 1939.

 

In 1940, he went to Nigeria where he ministered in the then Prefecture of Calabar. In 1946, Vin returned to Ireland and was appointed to promotion work during the years 1946 to 1950. In that year, he took up parish work in Manchester, where he remained until 1956, when he was appointed to Kenya. There, he acted as Secretary to Bishop Houlihan and combined this with pastoral work in Eldoret Town. He left Eldoret in 1970 and transferred to the Diocese of Pensacola in Florida, U.S.A. In 1974, he retired and went to live with a family in Gulf Breeze, Florida.

 

He remained there until 1984 – and in that year he retired to our house in Cliffside Park, New Jersey where he died suddenly on the 28th of August, 1988.
