We are sorry to inform you of the death of Edward (“Ted”) Rogers SJ.
Ted died peacefully, but quite suddenly, on 30th December in the community house at Corpus Christi, Boscombe, UK.
He was 93 years of age. He was born on 9th November 1924, entered the Society at Manresa, Roehampton on 9th September 1948, at the age of 23, and was ordained on St Ignatius Day in 1958.
Ted worked in Rhodesia (later Zimbabwe) for 51 years, as a teacher and social activist, in particular in relation to AIDS, before returning to England in 2011 to join the Corpus Christi community.
He remained active there, and had recently published a book on the Missionary Martyrs of Rhodesia and Zimbabwe 1976-88, many of whom he had known personally. May he rest in peace.
