We are very sad to announce the death of Canon Gaine on 16 April. Fr John was a very loyal friend of Christ the King School, having served on our Board of Governors from 1984 to 2017 and serving as Chairperson up until 2002. He was 91 years old and in his 68th year of priesthood.
Fr John was also Parish Priest at St Teresa’s and a popular presence in the community for the last 40 years, including Chaplain to Queenscourt Hospice. He was still very active in his retirement, which he only took two years ago due to ill health.
Eternal rest, grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen.
