FR. SHAUN O’DONNELL was born in Derry City, Ireland on August 2, 1937 and died in Dalgan on December 2, 2011. He was ordained priest on December 21, 1962. After language studies, Fr. Shaun was appointed to Mindanao. He served as parish priest in Aurora, Malabang and San Pablo. Then he served in Bonifacio and Jimenez until he was appointed to Mission Awareness/Promotion in Britain from 1984 to 1988.  Re-appointed once more to Mindanao in 1989, he was in charge of the house in Cagayan de Oro and did hospital chaplaincy work, before being appointed as parish priest to Agusan where he spent ten years. As a special ministry, Fr. Shaun established a programme for children with impaired hearing. This later became an Archdiocesan programme. In 2002, he was appointed as guest-master of the Baguio house and served there until sickness forced his return to Ireland and the Columban Nursing Home, Dalgan Park in 2009. He bore his debilitating illness with humor, courage and patience. Fr. Shaun is buried at Dalgan.
