Information, tips and prayers during Coronavirus

Dear Parishioners ,

It is with sadness that I write to let you know of the death of Fr Michael Sullivan, one of my predecessors as Parish Priest of Holy Spirit. He died earlier today (Thursday 21st May) at home in his flat at Otley, following a short but aggressive illness. Please pray for the repose of his soul.

Following Ordination to the Priesthood on 10th March 1973, Fr Michael served at St Mary’s, Maltby from 1973 to 1980, St Mary’s, Halifax from 1980 to 1982, St Walburga’s, Shipley from 1982 to 1986, St Mary’s, Cottingley from 1986 to 1991, St Aelred’s, Harrogate from 1991 to 1997, St Austin’s, Wakefield from 1997 to 1998, St Mary’s, Bradford from 1998 to 2002, Holy Spirit, Heckmondwike from 2002 to 2006, St Clare’s, Bradford from 2006 to 2007 and lastly for a few months at Leeds Cathedral before his retirement from holding parochial office.

There are no details of any funeral arrangements at this early stage, but when these are known I shall publish them on the Newsletter. It is more than likely that the Funeral, like that of other priests who have died recently, will be held under our current restrictions.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen.
