Memorial Mass for Mgr Paul Watson

All Welcome

Fr Paul

Everyone at Maryvale was saddened to hear of the death of Mgr Paul Watson on 16th October, following a long illness over recent years. Fr Paul was the second director of the Maryvale Institute, a post he held from 2000 to 2012, during which time he oversaw the expansion of Maryvale's international outreach, and the establishment by the Holy See of the Higher Institute of Religious Sciences, though which it is able to offer ecclesiastical degrees. Many past students of Maryvale will primarily remember Fr Paul though as an inspired and inspiring teacher of the faith, with a great fervour for evangelisation rooted in proclamation of Christ as our saviour. May he rest in peace.

A memorial Mass will take place for Fr Paul on Monday 19th November at 6.00pm. All past and present staff, students and friends of Maryvlale are very welcome to attend. Please pray for the repose of Fr Paul's soul, and for his family.
