Condolence to the family of Mr. Wilson Ong

The Department of Physics and the School of Science and Engineering wish to express our condolences to the family of Mr. Wilson Ong who passed away due to cardiac arrest last 23 November 2015 at the age of 57. He is the father of Matthew Ong, our student on his 5th year taking BS Applied Physics with Materials Science and Engineering (APS-MSE),

Though the wake has already ended last Friday, 27 November, we would be grateful to the Ateneo community for prayers for the repose of the soul of Mr. Wilson Ong, and for the comfort and support of Matthew and his family on their father’s untimely demise.

Maraming salamat po.

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all consolation, who consoles us in our every affliction, so that we may be able to console those who are in any affliction with the consolation with which we ourselves are consoled by God.”  (2 Corinthians 1: 3-4)
