A Sad Week
Sunday 16 November 2014 Articles

As some of you may have noticed from our Facebook page, this is a sad week for us. On Wednesday night, our member John Pope died. He had been ill with cancer and had known it was terminal for many months.

John was raised a Catholic, but spent many years involved with the Church of England, including being on General Synod. He became a member of the Ordinariate a couple of years ago, when his wife, Val was received into full communion with Rome at our Easter Vigil. He will be sorely missed by our group.

We ask for your prayers for his soul and for Val and their family at this time.IMG_0034

  1. Such a lovely, gentle man. May he rest in peace and rise in glory.

  2. We have fond memories of john and val and their family from our st lukes time. So sad to hear of John’s passing but so glad that like us he took the step of joining the ordinariate of our lady of Walsingham – we are members of the Tunbridge Wells branch – much love to all his family – the Stewart family
