Fr Brian Lawlor O.S.A. R.I.P.

(updated on July 23 - from St Mary's Church Harborne newsletter)

Fr Brian Lawlor OSA died peacefully last Monday 16 July in the QE at 7.30pm, with Fr Bernard Rolls, the Prior of the Birmingham Community, seated beside him.

His Requiem will take place on Thursday 26 July at 12.00 noon, here in St Mary’s, followed by burial alongside his great friend Fr Killian O’Mahony OSA, in our Vivian Close cemetery.

His remains will be received into Church at 6.00pm on Wednesday 25 July.

Fr Brian has an extensive family in Ireland, many flying over for his Funeral, plus a large following in both St John Stone’s and the Sacred Heart, Southport (where he served as PP for 24 years) and in Hammersmith where he inaugurated the Irish Welfare Bureau and then served it for 24 years. We expect a huge gathering.

Please keep Brian's family in your prayers.
