REV. LEO WARD LONE ENGLIS:14JIAPA MISSIONARY IN Fr. Leo Ward, whose death at sea is announced, was the second son of the late Wilfrid Ward and Mrs. Wilfrid Ward, the well-known writer and novelist. After trying his vocation with the Jesuits at Manresa House, Roehampton, Fr. Ward became a secular priest. During this period he wrote a book on Reason and Faith as well as numerous articles, his heart however was in missionary work, and despite very poor health he went out to Japan ten years ago to found a lonely English mission in Tokyo. There his spirit and enthusiasm enabled him to make extraordinary progress.. He died on his way back to this country, having been among the British citizens in Japan for whom repatriation was arranged.

Fr. Ward was brother of Maisie Ward, who married Mr. Frank Sheed, the publisher and lecturer.
