Réquiem ætérnam dona eis Dómine

During November, the month of the Holy Souls, please remember in your Mass intentions, prayers and devotions, dead lists for the Altar, and graveyard visits, the souls of four early friends and benefactors of The Saint George Educational Trust.

The Reverend Father Michael Crowdy  

Fr. Michael Crowdy, ordained in 1954 and juridically a member of the BFr Crowdyrompton Oratory, became a friend, confidant and collaborator of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre in the 1970’s. Always remaining independent of the Society of Saint Pius X, Fr. Crowdy worked closely with it up until his death. Fr. Crowdy was called to his eternal reward at exactly 3pm on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, 2006.

In 1994 Fr. Crowdy registered, along with other founding trustees, The Saint George Educational Trust, as a charity in England and Wales.

Rosine de Bounevialle  

Rosine de Bounvialle

Rosine de Bounevialle, a cradle Catholic, spent much of her life campaigning and protesting against the ever-increasing erosion of National Sovereignty and Social Justice. For many years an active member of The League of Empire Loyalists under A. K. Chesterton, by the 1970’s Rosine had more or less retired to her country home where she dedicated herself to continuing Chesterton’s legacy and spirit by writing and publishing up until her death on the Feast of the Nativity of Christ, 1999.

Massimo Morsello  

Massimo Morsello

Massimo Morsello, exiled in England after escaping an attempted frame-up by the infamous P2 Masonic Lodge, died back in his Roman homeland on the Feast of The Forty Martyrs of Sebaste, 2001. Roberto Fiore, his close friend, business partner and a founding trustee of The Saint George Educational Trust, wrote of him that in his last few years he “took the decisive step of his life, returning with faith and humility to the Catholic Faith. Faith lived with consistency, rigour, but also with great humility and humanity. Massimo, until the very last, remained faithful to the Tridentine Mass and unadulterated Catholicism, Roman and eternal”.

Wallace Wears  

Wallace Wears

Wallace Wears, a political campaigner with the National Front, became a regular attendee of conferences organised by The Saint George Educational Trust, converted to the Faith and was received into the Church, by Fr. Michael Crowdy, shortly before his death in 1997. Just a few weeks before his death Wallace, a pensioner, travelled alone from his home in Wallsend, Northumberland, to Fatima on a pilgrimage organised by The Society of Saint Pius X to commemorate Fatima’s 80th anniversary. Heaven determined to release Wallace from this Vale of Tears that October, the month of the Holy Rosary and month of Fatima’s Miracle of the Sun.
