Fr John Hunwicke RIP
Saturday 4th May 2024

Dear Fathers, Brothers and Sisters

I am sorry to inform you that our priest, Fr John Hunwicke died on Tuesday 30th April.  I have only heard of this news second-hand, which is the reason for the information being sent out some time after his death.  I gather his funeral will take place at the Oxford Oratory, but the time and date has not been confirmed.  When I know what it is, I will put it on the Ordinariate website.  Please pray for the repose of the soul of John Hunwicke and I would be grateful if priests can offer mass for him as soon as possible. 

I have recently been informed of the details of Fr Hunwicke’s funeral.  It will take place at the Oxford Oratory, 25 Woodstock Rd on Tuesday 4th June at 11am.  It will not be a concelebrated mass, although clergy are welcome to attend in choir.  There will be a reception in the parish centre after mass and the burial will take place later in the afternoon at Kennington church yard.  There will be no reception of the body the previous evening. 

May he rest in peace. 

Yours sincerely in Christ.

The Right Revd Mgr Keith Newton
