Andrew Desmond – Licensed Lay Minister

On 18th November Andrew suffered a major stroke, and sadly he never regained consciousness. He died on 25th November. He may not have been conscious for the last week of his life, but to the many people who ar-rived at his bedside, he was still ministering, bringing healing and reconciliation. He had been part of the St K congregation for a while and had been serving in the Benefice since his licensing last November. His amazing gift of photography is evident in this year’s Christmas leaflet and on our new website. We’ll miss his gracious manner, his passionate faith, his willingness to serve, and his ability to communicate the gospel.

His funeral is due to take place at St Katharine’s on Tuesday 8th December at 12.30

Our thoughts, prayers and love go out to His family, friends and colleagues at this difficult time.He was a man who carried in very great blessing and will be sorely missed.
