Fr. Pat Fitzgerald MAfr. R.I.P.

We wish to announce the return to the Father of Fr. Patrick Fitzgerald on Wednesday 26th June 2019 at a New-York Hospital (USA).
Fr. Patrick was born 22 July 1925 and died just short of his 94thbirthday. 

 He was a Missionary of Africa for 69 years working inGreat Britain, Tanzania, Zambia and the United States.

 Many people would have known him as Rector at St. Edward’s College in the late 60’s and early 70’s. He was also a frequent visitor to Zambia where he gave sessions to many sisters on Personal Awareness.

 The funeral will take place on Saturday, 6 July 2019 at 10 a.m. at the church of the Immaculate Conception, Westhampton Beach.

 May He Rest in Peace.

A New Missionary Community in Central Liverpool

Recently, in his pastoral letter of last October to the people of the archdiocese, Archbishop Malcolm McMahon wrote: “In the city of Liverpool I have invited the missionaries of Africa, more commonly known as the White Fathers, to take over the pastoral care of one of our parishes. They will be setting up a mission to specifically respond to the needs of our African brothers and sisters, and others of various ethnic origins, in the city”.
