Of your charity, please pray for the soul of David Skeoch, priest, who died late on Thursday 10th March 2016.
Fr David Skeoch was a renowned liturgist, a scholar and a bon viveur. As an Anglican, his most notable ministry was as Vicar of St Gabriel’s, Pimlico, from 1983 until his retirement in 2007. He had also served as chaplain to Bishop Graham Leonard, both in Truro and in London. In 2011 he responded to Pope Benedict’s invitation and was received into the Catholic Church as part of the newly forming Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham. He was ordained priest by Bishop Alan Hopes on 15th June 2011 and helped out in the churches around Ipswich. His many friends in the Catholic Church, the Church of England and beyond will mourn his passing from us.
