Father Edward Houghton RIP, priest of Westminster UK

Please pray for the soul of Father Edward who was fatally injured in a car crash in North Yorkshire on August 21st. Details reached me because a friend sent me the relevant Westminster Cathedral nesws bulletin which arrived in this morning's post. Father had formerly been a Deacon at Westminster Cathedral and latterly Assistant Priest at Chiswick, West London. He was forty years of age and had been a priest for just over one year. His remains were received into the Church of Our Lady of Grace and St. Edward on September 2nd, after which Mass was celebrated with retired Cardinal Murphy O'Connor as main celebrant. The funeral Mass the next day was at 12 noon with Archbishop Nichols of Westminster as main celebrant. Father was interred in Preston, Lancashire the next day, September 4th.

We offer our prayers for the repose of Father's soul, and for his family who mourn.
