Mgr Gordon Read, the Latin Mass Society's National Chaplain, has been given Life Membership of the Canon Law Society of Great Britain and Ireland, of which he is a Trustee.
Mgr David Hogan (President) says:
'This was in recognition of the outstanding service which Gordon has given to the Society over many years and the huge contribution which he has made to the Newsletter issue after issue. Gordon is currently one of the four Trustees of the Society and as with everything else this is carried out with true quiet dedication, courtesy and good humour. Many of us have gained much by his wise counsel unfailingly given, over many years. I am personally enormously grateful to Gordon and trust this distinction will convey our esteem and gratitude.'
Mgr Read's contribution to interpretation of Canon Law is well known; he is also the Chancellor of his diocese, Brentwood, and a busy parish priest. The Latin Mass Society is very honoured to have him as its National Chaplain.
