All at Maryvale are Saddened to Hear
of the Death of Dr Lionel Gracey

Dr Lionel Gracey


With sadness, we share the news of the death of Dr Lionel Gracey.

Dr Gracey was a consultant surgeon at the Royal Free Hospital, University of London, from 1966 until his retirement in 1991. Following his retirement, he obtained a pontifical degree in theology from Maryvale Institute. From that time, he lectured on many programmes at Maryvale and was made a Fellow. He wrote a number of books and articles, particularly on art and Catholicism, co- authoring a series for The Sower. He was a popular member of staff at Maryvale and will be greatly missed.

Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord,
And let perpetual light shine upon him.
May he rest in peace.
Amen.
