Re: Invitation to the Memorial Mass for the Right Reverend Christopher Budd
The Canons of the Chapter of the Cathedral of St. Mary and St. Boniface, Plymouth invite you to the
Memorial Mass for Bishop Christopher Budd. This Mass will be an opportunity for us as a Diocese to
celebrate his life and his considerable contribution to the Plymouth Diocese during his time as Bishop of
our Diocese from 1986 until 2014, as well as a chance to offer up prayers for the repose of his soul.
This Memorial Mass will take place at 12 noon on Tuesday 23rd May at Plymouth Cathedral and will be
followed by a barbecue in the grounds of the Cathedral.
Please could those priests and deacons who wish to attend this Mass inform Emma, the Diocesan
Administrator’s P.A. Her email address is: email@example.com If parish priests are aware of
numbers coming from their parish, please could you also let Emma know.
Canon Peter Morgan
Secretary to the Cathedral Chapter
My sincerest sympathy to all in the Diocese of Plymouth on the death of Bishop Christopher Budd. My prayers for you all and for his family and friends, to whom he was so close and for whom he was so grateful. May Bishop Christopher now receive the reward of his labours, and hear those comforting words of the Lord, whom he served so well, “Well done, good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of your Master.”
Archbishop Mark O'Toole
