Fr. Paul Johnson,


Fr. Paul M. Johnson' 0.S.M., who died last Friday, was born in London in 1901. At the early age of 13, after attending St. Ignatius' College, Stamford Hill, he entered the Servite Order, and did his studies at Begbroke, near (Jxford, and the International College, Rome.

He wan dogged by ill-health and had to return to England before completing the full theological course. He was ordained by Archbishop (later Cardinal) Lepicier at the Servile Church in Fulham Road in 1927. He was then sent to the House of Studies and Noviciate at Begbroke. and was Master of Students until te36; during that period he was of great help and gave wonderful example to many who are now priests of the Order.

In 1936 he was sent to the Servite Church iii Fulham Road. London, and he was there so long that he became a veritable "institution": from 1936 to 1952: for most of that time he was either Prior or Parish Priest, or both; he is held in vivid memory by London Parishioners for his kindliness, charity and hard work on their behalf.

In t952 he was elected as Prior and Parish Priest to the Servile Parish in Kersal, Salford. There he expanded a little school already started, so that recognition could be obtained from the Education Authorities. A fine new hall was built: the number of children grew from 40 until today there are 200, and two new classrooms are to be added soon: the school was recognised nearly two years ago.

Fr. Johnson's love of children was obvious to all: towards the end of his life, his happiness was to have a room overlooking the school playground and to see and listen to the children at their play.
