Tribute to Fr Paul Graham who has died in Rome

Former priest at Clare Priory, Fr Paul Graham OSA, died unexpectedly in Rome on Sunday December 11.

At the time of his death, Fr Paul was Assistant General of the Order of St Augustine, residing in Rome, with responsibility for the Provinces of Northern Europe.  

Fr Paul served as Provincial of the Province of England and Scotland for three terms 1997-2001, 2001-05, and 2013-17.  He shared fully in the Augustinian ideal of community life, serving as prior and or parish priest in the Augustinian communities in Hammersmith, Harborne Birmingham, Edinburgh, Hoxton and Clare Priory where he served from 1993 to 2001. 

Fr Paul began his religious life at Clare in 1971;  he made his Solemn Profession and was ordained priest in 1976.   On Sunday December 11 Paul had completed his early stint at a local soup kitchen and was taken ill as he prepared to celebrate Mass.  He was aged 75.
