Congratulations Canons

Archbishop Vincent Nichols admitted Canon Mervyn Tower, Parish Priest of St John the Evangelist, Banbury and Canon Michael Neylon, Parish Priest of St Austin, Stafford, as Canons of the Metropolitan Chapter, says our diocesan website.

Pictured (L-R) are Canon Mervyn Tower, Bishop David McGough, Archbishop Vincent Nichols, Bishop Philip Pargeter, Canon Michael Neylon and Bishop William Kenny.

Congratulations to both, but especially to Fr Mervyn, who taught me several courses in Old Testament scripture study. The usual caveats apply, any ignorance is on my lack of attention and by no means his excellent skills as a Tutor. Fr Mervyn 'retired' from teaching at Oscott last year, again. Very sadly missed by all.

Fr Mervyn also led a pilgrimage to the Holy Land last summer, on which I was lucky enough to be a participant. It was truly wonderful. Who knows, I may even publish an article I have written for the forthcoming Oscotian magazine, here on this blog. Copies are available via the Oscott Website.

It says:

[If you would like a copy] Then just send a cheque, made out to “Oscott College” for the sum of £2.50 (inc. P&P). If you would like to subscribe to the 2009 edition of the Oscotian Magazine please add a note to that effect. And send to: Oscotian Editor, Oscott College, Chester Road, Sutton Coldfield, B73 5AA, UK.
