Bishop Vincent Malone RIP

Please pray for the repose of the soul of Bishop Vincent Malone, Auxiliary Bishop Emeritus, who died earlier this morning at the Royal Liverpool Hospital aged 88 years. Fr Stephen Lee, the hospital chaplain, was able to administer the sacraments to him during the night.

Bishop Vincent trained for the priesthood at St Joseph’s College, Upholland, and was ordained priest at St Oswald’s Church, Old Swan, Liverpool on 18th September 1955. After a number of years spent in the teaching profession, mainly at Cardinal Allen Grammar School, Liverpool, he became chaplain to the University of Liverpool (1971) and then Administrator of the Metropolitan Cathedral (1979).

On 13th May 1989 he was named as Titular Bishop of Abora and Auxiliary Bishop of Liverpool, and received episcopal consecration the following 3rd July. His resignation as Auxiliary Bishop was accepted on 26th October 2006, shortly after his 75th birthday, but he continued in his role as Vicar General and Canon of the Cathedral Chapter long after that.

A fuller obituary and funeral details will follow in due course.

For many years Bishop Vincent commended to our prayers the souls of deceased priests and faithful in our archdiocese. May we now pray for him, bidding the choirs of angels to lead him into paradise.
