" So Mary is a Queen. And, for our consolation, we ought to remember that she is a most tender and kind Queen eager to help us in our miseries. So much so that the Church wants us to call her in this prayer a Queen of Mercy! "
St. Alphonsus Liguori

Brother Francis (Peter Graham) 1889-1983

Brother Francis died, aged 94 in St Raphael’s Nursing home Bromley Kent on Sunday 17th November 1983

He was born in Byermoor, Co Durham in 1889. He made his religious profession as a Redemptorist in 1918 at the age of 29. He spent the last 65 years of his life in the most unobtrusive way, praying and serving his brother Redemptorists and God’s people through humble service. For most of his life he was either cook or refectorian in many of our houses in Britain, though he did spend 9 years working in Pretoria, South Africa. His last community was St. Mary’s Clapham from where he was buried. May he rest in peace.
