Bishop Howard Tripp’s first anniversary of death is on 3 October. There will be a Year’s Mind Mass for him at the Cathedral the day after, on Wednesday 4 October at 12.30pm.

Bishop Paul Hendricks will be the main celebrant. This Mass will be simply 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. May he rest in peace and rise in glory!
