MIDDLESBROUGH Y.C.W. LEADER The Young Christian Workers of Tees-side have suffered a big loss by the death of James McDonald while serving with the Royal Navy. He was the third son of Mr. Adam McDonald and the late Mary Jane McDonald, of 165, Stockton Street, Middlesbrough.
The first President of the Cathedral section of the Y.C.W., James McDonald worked with 'untiring zeal and devotion to further the movement, and when he joined the Navy he started a Y.C.W. section at Gibraltar, where he was stationed for two years. His brother John is in the R.A.F. and brother Pat in the Army now in the Far East.
Requiem mass was sung at the Cathedral on Monday by Fr. Mark Crowley, Spiritual Director, and the choir was composed of ten local Y.C.W. Chaplains. All Tees-side Y.C.W. sections were represented.
The late Mr. Joseph Duffy, who left £351,377 (n.p. £331,130), has left residue of estate as to one-third each upon trust to the Dioceses of Westminster, Southwark and Brentwood.
Following the death of his mother, in Co. Limerick, Eire, less than two months ago, the Rev. Richard Kennedy, P.P., P.S.M. Rector, St. Peter's Italian Church, Clerkenwell, E.C., is again bereaved by the sudden death, after a few days' illness, of his father, aged 76, who died early last week, at his home at Pallaskenny, Co. Limerick.
