Rev Provost Bernard Thom RIP

We were sad to hear recently of the death of Reverend Provost Bernard Thom who was a priest of the diocese and died in retirement on Saturday 24th October aged 80 years. Ordained in 1954 he served the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton from its inception in 1965 in many different parishes. He was a great lover of art and his final achievement before illness overtook him was to organise an exhibition of art by clergy and religious of the diocese at St John's Seminary in Wonersh to raise money for CAFOD.

As a Provost and Canon of the Cathedral his body will be received there on Wednesday 4th November at 5pm including Solemn Vespers. His Requiem Mass will be at the Cathedral the next day, Thursday 5th November at 12 noon.

All are welcome to attend but any clergy attending are asked to let the Cathedral Administrator know on aruncath1@aol.com by 2nd November.

Please pray for the repose of his soul - May he rest in peace
