One of the many celebrants of the Mass was our new ecclesiastical adviser, Bishop Tom Neylon

We referred briefly in the June edition to Archbishop Malcolm McMahon’s attainment of the 40th anniversary of his Priesthood and congratulated him on this achievement. Archbishop Malcolm is not only Archbishop of Liverpool, but he was for many years our ecclesiastical adviser and it was for the Knights a joyous occasion to be present at his Celebration Mass at the Metropolitan Cathedral on 26 June.

Our supreme knight, Brother Harry Welsh, and board of directors were in attendance along with the president of the International Alliance of Catholic Knights, Bro Charlie McCluskey, who made a presentation to Archbishop Malcolm. Bro Harry Welsh also made a presentation of a Papal Blessing which reads as follows: ‘The Holy Father Francis cordially imparts the requested Apostolic Blessing to Archbishop Malcolm McMahon on the occasion of the 40th Anniversary of his Priestly Ordination invoking through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary an abundance of Divine graces.’

One of the many celebrants of the Mass was our new ecclesiastical adviser, Bishop Tom Neylon, who had celebrated his 40th anniversary as a priest in May. Bro Harry Welsh took the opportunity at a recent board meeting to offer him our congratulations and make a presentation to him.

• It is with profound sadness that we report the death of esteemed Bro Ben O’Donnell, a former grand knight of Council 51, Wirral, who passed to his heavenly award on Tuesday 5 July. We extend our deepest sympathy to Bro Ben’s widow Mavis and all his family.

Eternal rest grant to him, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace.
