Tributes paid to great champion of Our Lady

Mgr Georges Tutto, a great champion and advocate of Our Lady’s Shrine in Walsingham and the cause of Charlotte Boyd, has died, aged 92. Antonia Moffat pays tribute.


Our beloved Mgr Georges (Chaplain to the Hungarians in the UK) died very peacefully on Monday November 13.

He was a holy and much loved priest who told me that when he first went to Medjugorje in 1984 he made a vow to the blessed Mother that he would spend the rest of his life spreading her messages.

For a while now, Fr Georges has not known who anyone was… yet on my last visit he certainly knew how to give me his priestly blessing, which I received three times, and I will always greatly treasure this last visit.

On a previous visit he was so impatient to go to heaven but happy to be in Maryville Care Home in Brentford in Middlesex with such a beautiful and tender Marian spirit and he was a joy to visit.

I give thanks for what Mgr Georges did for Our Lady’s Shrine in Walsingham and especially in remembrance of Charlotte Boyd and her cause, for it was he who cared for the grave of Charlotte for over 20 years and who championed her cause.

Fr Georges loved Our Lady of Walsingham and never ceased to speak of and pray to her. His great hope was that one day the mortal remains of Charlotte would be laid to rest in Walsingham besides the Slipper Chapel which she so generously gave to the Catholic Church and which eventually became our National Marian Shrine.

A great priest son of the Holy Church, a great son of Hungary and also a great son of the UK. Thank you Almighty God for gracing us with dear Fr Georges.

Rest in peace dear Father.
