The University of Porto Alegre celebrates a Mass in memory of the victims of the plane crash

23/07/2007: Brazil

A Mass in memory of the victims of the plane crash in São Paulo on the 17th July was celebrated last Thursday afternoon in the church of Christ Our Master on the central campus of the PUC of Rio Grande do Sul. Two lecturers, a current female student and some ex-students were on board the plane that crashed near the airport of Congonhas.

According to the official information given by the authorities and the air company, included among the passengers were the Director of the Institute of Geriatrics and Gerontology of PUCRS, Doctor Antônio Carlos Araújo de Souza, aged 56; a female lecturer from the Faculty of Education and Distance Education, Valdemarina Bidone de Azevedo e Souza, aged 62; and a female student from the Faculty of Humanistics, Raquel Soares Warmiling, aged 19. The two lecturers were to change planes in Congonhas, in order to fly to Brasilia where they were going to participate in meetings with the Ministry of Justice, with whom PUCRS has been developing a post-graduate course in Social Welfare since last January.

A doctor who studied at PUCRS, Araújo de Souza specialised in geriatrics and had a doctorate in bone metabolism from the University of Tokyo. Apart from the direction of the IGG, he co-ordinated the Collaborative Centre of the World Health Organisation in the same Institute.

The female lecturer, Valdemarina, studied Biochemistry at UFRGS and Pedagogy at PUCRS, having worked on methodologies and interdisciplinary technological resources at the service of learning. Having a Masters and Doctor of Education from PUCRS, she co-ordinated the Post-Graduate Programme in Biomedical Gerontology in the Institute of Geriatrics and Gerontology.

As well as the two lecturers and the female student, several other persons connected to PUCRS were aboard that flight.
