London Requiem for Fr Charles-Roux

The much-loved and eccentric Fr Jean-Marie Charles-Roux, a member of the Rosminian Order and a great supporter of the Traditional Mass, died last week in Rome.

A Requiem Mass will be celebrated for him on the 30th day after his death:

in St James' Spanish Place,

on Tuesday 9th September at 7pm.

It would have been nice to have it at St Ethelreda's Ely Place, where he ministered for many years, but we were not granted permission for this.

Apreciations of his life can be found here:

Fr Alexander Lucie-Smith in The Catholic Herald,
Damian Thompson in the Spectator.

May he rest in peace.

  1. Fr Charles-Roux was also a long time patron of the Society of King Charles ye Martyr. May he rest in peace.

  2. Golly, so he was.
