FATHER GEORGE McCANN RIP
Many of you will know that Father George was very ill and in hospital in Northampton, having earlier taken up residence in Nazareth House. Father George was anointed several times, by various priests, but died on Tuesday 25th January. He has asked for his funeral Mass to be offered at St Edward’s, as happened for his sister Mary, both well-known to many of you. Father George was ordained priest in 1953 and served in parishes across the old very large Northampton Diocese, from Burnham Bucks to Norwich, Great Yarmouth, Shefford and back to Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire, before retiring. He was a most generous, loving and much-loved priest, and our prayers and condolences are with all his family-members. May he rest in peace and rise in glory.
