“Fr Michael has given so much to the Church and particularly to our Diocese, both in his work in education and in his pastoral care both as a permanent deacon and then as the parish priest in St Felix in Haverhill, after his ordination to the priesthood in 2001. We thank God for his life and ministry and pray for the repose of his soul.”
