Fr. Paul Duncan R.I.P.

Apr 20, 2011

Today the people of Our Lady of Fatima Parish, Mairehau gathered, with the priest of the diocese and of the Society of Mary, and parishioners of the diocese and friends and family, to bury Fr. Paul Duncan.

In the heart of this Holy Week, this was the last thing we wanted to be doing. Paul was a good priest and his ministry will be missed in our diocese and throughout the country.

Since his move to Christchurch Diocese he has served as Parish Priest of Chatham Islands, Parish Priest of South Westland, and Parish Priest of Our Lady of Fatima, Mairehau. Paul’s ministry will be missed in our diocese.

May he Rest in Peace.
