Fr Peter Francis Wareing, CMF, RIP


Fr Peter Francis Wareing, cmf, died on the 8th August in Buckden, at the age of 86. May he rest in peace and receive from the good Lord all the happiness he deserves for his life dedicated to Christ's mission.

Fr Peter, born on 20th October 1931 in Liverpool (Lancashire, England), entered officially in the Claretian Missionary Congregation on the 8th of December 1952. He was a 21 year old lad ready to offer his entire life to the mission of God and mission of the Church in the Congregation of Missionary Sons of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.(also known as Claretian Missionaries).

After years of studies and preparation here in England and in Rome, he was ordained a Claretian Missionary Priest on 7th December 1958. He worked in different communities in the United Kingdom, United States and Guatemala. He also served as the major superior of the United Kingdom and Ireland Province.

Let's give thanks to God for the gift of Fr. Peter's life, his person, his vocation, his missionary service. May the Lord of Life and our Blessed Mother Mary accompany our brother and friend to the Father's House, to share in the banquet of His Kingdom. May his soul rest in peace.

The funeral will be on the 24th August at 12 noon.

Family Day
Claretian Family Day

The 'Claretian Family Day' is on the Bank Holiday. This is an annual event to which everyone is invited. The day is an occasion for family and friends, associates and parishioners of all the Claretian Churches in the Uk to come together to share our faith and the spirit of St Anthony Mary Claret.

All are welcome to St Hugh's, starting midday with a BBQ and finishing with tea after Mass which will be at 3.30 pm. There will be a Bottle stall, so bottles would be most welcome. CWL members are asked once again to help on the Family Day preparing the teas, especially with contributions of cakes, preparing salads, etc and hands on the day for the barbeque and teas.

If you can help in any way at all please sign up at the back of the churches.
