RIP: Rev Dom Antony Tumelty OSB

Of your charity, pray for the repose of the soul of Rev Dom Antony Tumelty OSB who died on 27th August 2017 at 3.20pm at the age of 64.
Father Antony was professed a monk for 43 years and ordained to the sacred priesthood for 34 years.

He served as chaplain to the Poor Clares in Much Birch and also as the Chaplain to the armed forces. He will truly be missed by all who knew him.
During his life, Father Antony had a great devotion to our blessed Lady and to Saint John Kemble. Let us now pray to them to intercede for Father Antony.

May our blessed Lady,
Saint Michael,
Saint Joseph,
Saints Peter and Paul,
Saint Benedict,
Saints John Kemble and David Lewis
And all the Saints now pray for him to the Lord our God.
