ગુજરાતી કેથલિક સમાજ ઓફ યુએસએ ના મંત્રી શ્રી.એલેક્ષ (અશોક) રાઠોડ હાલમાં વતનની મુલાકાત પર ગયેલા છે. તેઓ વલસાડ ખાતે રહેતા હોવાથી ફાધર છગનની ફ્યુનરલ સર્વિસમાં હાજર રહી શક્યા હતા. તેમણે લખેલો ટૂંકો અહેવાલ:

સ્વ.પૂજ્ય ફાધર છગન ના ફ્યુનરલ માં વલસાડ તાબાના લોકો ફાધર પોલ સાથે ગયા હતા. આર્ચબિશપ શ્રી સ્ટેનિસ્લાઉસ દ્વારા ખ્રિસ્તયજ્ઞ અર્પણ કરવામાં આવ્યો હતો. સાથે લગભગ ૬૦ ફાધરો હતા. આશરે ૪૦૦૦ જેટલા ધર્મજનો એ તેમની ફ્યુનરલ માસ અને દફનક્રિયામાં ભાગ લીધો હતો. આર્ચબિશપશ્રી એ તેમને પયગંબર તરીકે ઓળખાવ્યા હતા. ખરેખર એક ઉમદા વ્યક્તિત્વનો અંત પણ પ્રભુએ એમના આત્માને પરમ શાંતિ આપીજ દીધી છે એવી ખાતરી છે. આવા સેવાભાવી ઉમદા વ્યતિત્વને નમન.
