Of your charity please pray for the repose of the soul of
the Very Reverend James Canon Foley
1931 – 2015
It is with sadness that I report the death of the late Canon James Foley, Parish Priest Emeritus of St. Augustine’s. Canon Foley died peacefully at home in the Presbytery at 9.15am on Wednesday 23rd September 2015, the day before his 84th birthday. He was fortified by the Rites of Holy Mother Church.
Canon Foley enjoyed a long and fruitful ministry as St. Augustine’s spanning almost thirty years. He retired as Parish Priest on 1st November 2014 and celebrated his Diamond Jubilee of Priesthood in April of this year.
Funeral arrangements have still to be confirmed.
I ask the people of St. Augustine’s and beyond to remember to pray for Canon Foley’s eternal rest in the days ahead as we prepare to celebrate his funeral rites at our parish. We pray that the Lord will now take him into his care.
St. Pio of Pietrelcina…pray for him. Requiescat in pace.
Fr. Michael J. Kane
