Some news from last year – but of interest to anyone with a Brentwood priest in their family.

Brentwood archivist Fr Stewart Foster has compiled a new publication. The Deceased Clergy of the Diocese of Brentwood: Biographical Summaries has 315 pages with illustrations. It gives a biographical summary (and for most entries there are illustrations) of the 200 deceased priests and five permanent deacons of the Diocese of Brentwood (1917-2012).

Profits from the sale will benefit the Brentwood Diocesan Sick & Retired Clergy Fund and the Brentwood Ecclesiastical Education Fund (for the training of students for the priesthood).

Copies are available from: Clergy Book, Brentwood Diocesan Archives, Cathedral House, Brentwood, Essex CM15 8AT at £10 (plus £2.25 p&p). Cheques should be made in favour of ‘BRCDT’.
