Fr. John Seddon, the Merseyside County Scout Chaplain has sadly passed away. Fr. John supported all scout groups and led many initiatives within scouting. He will sadly be missed
Fr John will be received at the Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King on Thursday 5th March at 7pm. This will be followed by a short service led by Bishop Tom Williams. As there are extremely large numbers expected at the funeral mass, the Thursday night service has been arranged so that those unable to attend the Friday mass can pay their respects. The funeral mass itself will take place on Friday 6th March at 11am at the Cathedral, led by Archbishop McMahon, followed by internment at SS Peter and Paul RC Church cemetery in Crosby.
Scout Uniform is welcomed by all those wishing to attend either service. It may also be nice for those Scouting friends to assemble together in the Cathedral to participate in both acts of worship and celebration for John.
