Please pray for the eternal happiness of The Reverend Dom Alberic Stacpoole, Monk of Ampleforth Abbey, who died on 30th September 2012 in the 82nd year of his age, the 53rd of his monastic life and the 43rd of priesthood.
Fr Bill McLoughlin OSM, Honorary General Secretary of ESBVM, had spoken by phone with The Abbot on Friday to offer prayers and good wishes to Fr Alberic and the Community from the ESBVM. ESBVM now offers to Fr Abbot and the Ampleforth Community deepest sympathy and also to all members of the ESBVM in our loss and prayer of thanks for one who always offered the society such powerful and wise support.
May Fr Alberic come to that full share in the Resurrection in the hope of which we all live and may he rest in Peace.
Provisional Funeral Arrangements
Fr Alberic’s funeral Mass will take place at Ampleforth Abbey on Thursday 11th October at 11.30am, followed by burial in the vault in the Monks’ Wood, and a buffet lunch at about 1.30pm in the Main Hall.
