Returned to the Father: Father Len Egan

The youngest and the last to enter eternal life of the thirteen Victorian priests ordained in 1944. Fr Len later was parish priest of North Sunshine, Yarraville and Ivanhoe. He retired from active ministry in 1993.
Len was a loyal friend to many parishioners and priests. He had a quirky sense of humour and was a delightful raconteur.
When he was 60 years a priest, he said “I wish to thank those thousands of lay people– all those people whom we have got to know over the years. All those who befriended us. No one could have more friends than a diocesan priest.”
