Mauritius: A chartered accountant of Mauritius receives the highest honor for a layman by the Pope François
Roland Fok Seung, a Mauritian accountant settled for 10 years in Madagascar, was recently awarded the Medal of the Holy Cross Pro Ecclesia and Pontifice (literal translation: for the Church and to the Pope).

This honor is the highest a lay person can receive for his work and his services to the Catholic Church and the bishop of Rome, Pope Francis.

Active member of the Chinese Catholic Mission and whose father was former Mayor of Port-Louis, Roland Fok Seung first Mauritian to be decorated by the Medal of the Holy Cross Pro Ecclesia and Pontifice also works with many charitable movements.

Delivery of this cross of honour was held in Tananarive in the Apostolic Nuncio of the Malagasy capital.

Monsignor Eugene Martin Nugent has given him the medal of the Holy Cross Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice to many celebrities, as the ambassador of Mauritius in the island, Gerard Le Maire, the Head of Mission of the U.S. Embassy Eric Wong and Véronique de la Roche Foucault, Ambassador of the Sovereign Order of Malta, as related by the Cinq Plus Dimanche newspaper.

As a reminder, the Holy Cross Pro Ecclesia and Pontifice Medal was struck by Pope Leo XIII, July 17, 1888, in commemoration of its 50th anniversary of priesthood.
