Father John Hawkins – RIP

It is with sadness that we announce that Fr Hawkins died on Tuesday, 15th July.

A much-loved priest and a true gentleman, he had served the diocese for over 45 years as a priest, most recently at St Pius X church.  He retired several years ago due to illness, but remained in Barrow and was regularly visited by members of the parish.

Please keep Fr John in your prayers, asking that the Lord will reward him for all his good work.
Pray also for his sisters, Monica and Rosaleen, and for all his family and friends.

Fr Hawkin’s funeral will take place during the week beginning 28th July and we will announce full details when they are available.
