Bishop Howard Tripp’s first anniversary of death will fall on 3rd October 2023 and there will be a Year’s Mind Mass for him - celebrated at St George’s Cathedral - the day after, on Wednesday 4 October at 12.30 pm. Bishop Paul Hendricks will be the main celebrant.
This Mass will be the usual lunchtime Cathedral Mass, but it was felt important to mark Bishop Howard’s first anniversary in some small way, in the place where he lies at rest in the Cathedral Crypt.
Bishop Howard gave 24 years of devoted episcopal service as Auxiliary Bishop in the South West Area of the Diocese, and continued his episcopal service indirectly during his 18 years of retirement. May he rest in peace and rise in glory!
Everyone is most welcome to attend the Mass.
