Please pray for...

Please pray for the following people who have died recently and who have been connected and contributed to the Catholic Association Pilgrimage for many years.

Right Reverend Mervyn Alexander DD LLD (Hon), the eighth Bishop of Clifton, died on 14 August 2010 at St Angela’s Home in Clifton, Bristol. Mervyn Alban Alexander was born on 29 June 1925 in Highbury, London, the eldest son of William and Grace Alexander. On 20 December 1974, he was made Bishop of Clifton. He was succeeded as Bishop of Clifton by Bishop Declan Lang on the 28 March 2001. He attended the Catholic Association Pilgrimage as Bishop for many years and is well known to his Diocese.

And, please pray for Fr John Dunne, former Parish priest of Our Lady Queen of Peace, Bournemouth who died last week. His parish have sent many young people and Assisted Pilgrims to Lourdes over the years, and he was very much involved in the fundraising initiatives.
May they both Rest in Peace.
