I know many of us who assist at the Extraordinary Form Masses knew Mr Graham Bell, so I was saddened to hear this morning that he died suddenly last week. He was very attached to the Old Rite and drove miles, all over the Diocese, to find them. He was always absolutely charming, a delight to chat with, and as his daughter described him, 'an officer and a gentleman'.
A Requiem Mass for him will be said next Tuesday, 18th September, at St Richard's, Chichester, at Noon. The celebrant will be Fr Richard Biggerstaff.
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him.
Please say a prayer for him!
