Archbishop of Southwark visit c1947

The Archbishop of Southwark, Peter Emmanuel Amigo, visited the church sometime between 1947 and 1949.

I remember seeing him but I don’t recall the reason for the visit. Perhaps someone can enlighten me? Pictured left to right are Father Pepper, Archbishop Peter Amigo and Father Munns.

  • This is such a lovely  picture, I remember Father Munns. When I was a child sick in Hospital, he was so kind to  me,  (he told my sister Jean and I to back Cambridge in the boat race). I really remember him with affection, did he die with a heart attack on a beach in Brighton?

  • I remember Father Munns very well he used to visit our home some Friday Evenings in Moulsecoomb as being at that time part of St Joseph’s Parish would have most probably have been 1948-1949. He always had a cup of tea and chatted away to my Mum and Dad. Also remember Father Pepper and Father Leahy, who Christened my daughter in 1964. I married my husband in St Joseph’s in 1963 by Father Maurice Courve de Murvillep.

  • I am wondering why the only Brighton and Hove Catholic churches mentioned in the list are St Joseph’s and St John the Baptist ? Where are the details of St Mary’s Preston Park, St Mary Magdalen Upper North Street, Sacred Heart Norton Road St Peter’s Hove, St George’s Hangleton, St Thomas More Patcham and Our Lady of Lourdes Rottingdean ? And no longer in existence St Francis Moulsecomb and St Louis King of France.
