We are sad to hear from Independent Catholic News that
Gerard W Hughes SJ, died peacefully in the Jesuit nursing home in Boscombe, Bournmouth, at about 2.30pm on Tuesday, 4 November 2014. He celebrated his 90th birthday in March this year. May he rest in peace.
Fr Gerry was a much-loved priest, spiritual director, author, teacher and friend to many. Fr Gerry's books included God of Surprises, God in All Things, Oh God Why?, and Walking with God. His last book, Cry of Wonder was published just last week.
Early in 2013 he gave a talk in a series at St. Giles' Church, Oxford from 17th January 2013 to 7th March 2013 inclusive.
Our tribute is to share his wisdom and his humour.
