May Fr Vincent Melia, SPUC campaigner, rest in peace

Marileine Ollerenshaw of SPUC's north-east England region has just sent me the following sad news:
"Father Vincent Melia, from St. Matthew, Ponteland, passed away last night. His body will be received into the church on Sunday evening and his funeral will be on Monday. Father Melia has been, for as long as I can remember, a strong supporter of SPUC and was, till recently, the chairman of the Ponteland branch. He kept encouraging people of all faiths and none to help the unborn and all those who have no voice. He will be sadly missed in the pro-life movement."
