News and Events
SVP - A tribute to Tony Fewell.Tony has been an SVP member since its formation at St. Peter's, Marlow, in 1965, when he he held the post of Treasurer. Subsequently, he became both Secretary and President. Otherwise, throughout his membership, he was a most dedicated and stalwart Vincentian, visiting numerous of the less fortunate members of our community, and always on hand to help out with various Parish events during the year. Sadly, Tony now finds it necessary to step down from his role in the Society, so the SVP would like to express their very deep appreciation for all he has done for them over his 55 years' membership and to wish him every blessing for the future. He will be greatly missed by us all.
FAITHFUL DEPARTED Please pray for the repose of the soul of John RADFORD. His funeral service will take place at St Peter’s on Wednesday 19th February at 11:30am. Please also pray for the souls of Art O’LEARY, Elizabeth LEE, Tom RONAN, Jonathan PEMBERTON, Dennis AMBROSE and Leslie JAYES.
May their souls and the souls of all the Faithful Departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
