Vale: Father Francis (Frank) Jones

Fr Frank 350 pxDear Friends,

I write to advise you of the death of Father Frank Jones PE on Saturday evening. Father Frank was ordained to the Priesthood on June 29, 1962, and served as Assistant Priest in the Parishes of Shepparton, Nagambie, Shepparton and Myrtleford and Parish Priest of the Parishes of Corryong, Cohuna, Cobram, Wangaratta and Numurkah from 2008 until his retirement. He was Administrator of Nathalia in addition to his appointment as Parish Priest of Numurkah. He retired on September 20, 2012, from which date he was appointed Pastor Emeritus.

Father Frank will be remembered in these parishes and across the Diocese of Sandhurst for his dedicated pastoral care and friendship that characterised his priestly ministry of the last 55 years.

Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St Brendan’s, Shepparton, at 11.00am on Monday, 19th June. Following Mass the cortege will move to the Numurkah cemetery for burial.

May the Lord richly reward Father Frank for his goodness. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful rest in peace. Amen.

Yours sincerely in Christ,

+ Les Tomlinson
Bishop Les Tomlinson DD
Bishop of Sandhurst
Catholic Diocese of Sandhurst
