With sadness we announce that Canon Rodney Marshall SSC died fortified by the Sacraments of the Church on 11 December 2018 in Springfield Grange, Hemsworth.
The Bishop of Wakefield said, "Father Marshall will be well known throughout the catholic parishes in Church of England. A much loved and faithful priest who has worked in some of the poorest communities. Sadly his death has come quickly as his health deteriorated very rapidly over the past few weeks. We pray for his soul now that he is at rest. May Christ welcome him to paradise! May Mary pray for him. May he rest in peace."
Jesu Mercy, Our Lady of Walsingham pray, S Helen pray.
The funeral arrangements are announced here.
