Dr Grove Johnson RIP

by Communications on 10th January 2018

Rev Dr Grove Johnson passed away peacefully early on Monday 8th January in the Rockhampton Hospital after a brief illness, aged 94 years.

Dr Grove had served as a priest for over 70 years and had only stopped saying public Masses toward the end of 2017 when health prevented him from continuing.

As well as serving the Diocese of Rockhampton he also served at Pius XII Seminary Banyo, St Patrick's Seminary Sydney (including time as Rector) and was National Director of the Pontifical Mission Society.

May he rest in peace.

Dr Grove's funeral is being held on Thursday 11th January at 10 am at St Joseph's Cathedral, Rockhampton.
