John Hughes – Funeral Service


From the website of Jesus College, Cambridge, “The College has been shocked at the death in a car accident of The Rev Dr John Hughes (1997), the Dean of Chapel at the College. The loss of John Hughes is acutely felt as the life of the College was greatly enriched by him. A former undergraduate of the College, he was both an outstanding academic who inspired the students he taught, and a faithful priest and pastor who touched profoundly all those with whom he came into contact. He will be deeply missed.”

The Funeral Service, at which all are welcome, will be held at 1.30 pm on Thursday 10 July in Ely Cathedral.”

And from Ely Cathedral, “Please note that on Thursday 10 July there will be no visitor access to the Cathedral between 12.45pm and 3.15pm due to a Requiem Eucharist taking place at 1.30pm.”

It has also been announced that there will be a Service and the Burial, which anyone is welcome to attend, at All Saints’ Church, Kenton, Devon, EX6 8LU, on Saturday 12th July at 2pm.

From St David’s Exeter website, “A Requiem Mass for Fr John Hughes will be celebrated at 7.30 pm on Wednesday 6th August at St Michaels Mount Dinham, Exeter. We hope that this will be a fitting tribute to John, a sign of our gratitude for all that he did in our parish and community and a opportunity for us all, together, to remember him before God. All are welcome to attend.”
