Father Ivor Morris died in the early hours of March 1st, in the presence of his sister Norma. After being taken ill in October of last year Fr Morris has remained in hospital, most recently in London where Mgr. Newton was able to visit and pray with him.
Fr Morris served the Anglican church of the Ascension, Chelmsford for twenty years before accepting the Holy Father's invitation and joining the Ordinariate in the first round of ordinations. He served the Diocese of Brentwood as Priest-in-Charge of the Blessed Sacrament, Chelmsford and as chaplain to Broomfield hospital.
Long time friend and colleague Fr Ed Tomlinson has posted an obituary.
Please pray for the repose of the soul of Fr Morris, for his family and for his people in the parish and the Chelmsford Ordinariate group.
