Mass for deceased Knights of St Columba

Bishop Kieran with Bro Geoff Breeze after Mass
Charles Yarham from the Knights of St Columba reports:
On the afternoon of Sunday 13 November Bishop Kieran celebrated Mass at Arundel Cathedral for deceased members of the Knights of St Columba in the Sussex Province.

This was attended by knights from as far as Hastings across to Chichester and up to Crawley. It was fitting that this year the Mass coincided with Remembrance Sunday.

At the end of Mass a presentation was made to Brother Geoffrey Breeze for services to the Order. He was presented with a meritorious service medal for all his hard work over the years. He became a knight in 1989 and apart from his initial training year he has never been out of office. During his membership he filled most officer posts and these included two three year terms as Grand Knight and also two three year terms as Provincial Grand Knight where he was responsible for overseeing the assistance given by the knights to help the Bishop at Confirmation services at the Cathedral and Corpus Christi and also at Worth Abbey.
