Jonathan Fleetwood OP RIP

Monday, May 30, 2011
Please join with us in praying for the eternal repose of our brother Jonathan Fleetwood OP who died on 23rd May 2011. Born in Birmingham in 1925, Jonathan qualified as an engineer before joining the Order in the late 1940s. He made profession in September 1951 and was ordained a priest in September 1956. He worked for some years in South Africa and returned to England in the late 1960s to be prior at Newcastle. He was prior provincial from 1974 until 1982 after which he lived briefly at Hawkesyard and Edinburgh before returning to London as provincial bursar. He returned briefly to Newcastle before moving to St Dominic's, Stone where he ministered as chaplain to St Dominic's Convent and St Mary's Home. He was indefatigable, working away until he was 85, and in spite of deteriorating health. He moved to Leicester in January, to die among his brethren. A full obituary of fr Jonathan will follow in due course.

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