Many of you will know by now that Father Tom died peacefully on Tuesday evening. He will be remembered by many of you as Music Director and a Deacon here, until he went to Rome in 1996 to train for the priesthood. He was ordained here in 2000 and served in Norbury, Beckenham Hill, Forest Hill and Brixton Hill parishes; he was also active in Marriage and Family Life ministry in the diocese and in the Ongoing Formation of Priests.
We pray for his soul and thank God for his faithful ministry; we pray also for Michael and his family.
UPDATE… Fr Tom’s Requiem Mass will be at St Edmund’s on Wednesday 18 December at noon. There will be a reception in the Hall immediately afterwards, and the family will leave later for a private service at the crematorium.
May he rest in peace.
