Of your charity pray for the repose of the soul of Mr John Adams who died recently and for his wife Olive and their family at this time.
I had the privilege of knowing John for many years as we were in the same parish of Cwmbran. He was assistant representative whilst Kingsley Lewis was representative. John was a great support of the Latin Mass Society and when he was able, he enjoyed attending the Latin Masses in the Archdiocese as well as those offered over the bridge in the Diocese of Clifton. John was also an Oblate of Buckfast Abbey and a great friend of the Belmont Abbey community too. John died yesterday evening (25/04/2021) after a short illness and was fortified by the rites of Holy Mother Church. I am sure that John will be missed by all who knew him.
Due to covid restrictions it will not be possible for many of us to attend John’s requiem. If a live stream is possible, I will post the link here shortly.
John has requested a Novus Ordo Requiem Mass because his family who will be attending are not Catholic. I will however arrange for a public Requiem Mass to be offered in the Traditional Rite when the current restrictions allow.
Let us pray for the repose of his soul and that the Lord will grant a merciful judgment.
Requiescat in Pace.
