At one point he was constrained not to Celebrate Mass at outlying centres, however, when the clergy returned, they discovered that Fr. Crowdy had taken Communion to a person an even further distance. I had a meeting with Fr. Crowdy at Bristol, when he was over 90,and upon arriving discovered he had gone to Celebrate Mass in Dorset and was expected imminently. In due course he arrived clothed in motor cycling gear and a WW II gas cape, when told he was on his newly acquired motorbike, I thought it was a joke, it was not!
Truly, "A priest forever ...... " RIP!
Fr Crowdy died on Friday 8th December at 3pm. Fr Boyle was with him. He wished to be buried at St Saviour's in Bristol. Requiescat in pace.
Please pray for Fr Crowdy, who said the Traditional Mass in Oxford for many years.
His Requiem (a Traditional Solemn High Mass) was said on Thursday 14th December at 11am in Bristol, at St Saviour's. (Saint Saviour's House, St Agnes Avenue, Knowle, Bristol BS4 2DU)
