  1. It was with great sadness, at the opening Mass of the electoral chapter, that we heard Fr John Cavanagh’s news that Fr Stephen Innes had very recently died. Masses said during the Chapter included prayers for the repose of his soul.

    Many of our members were professed by Fr Stephen. He served many fraternities in all the ways required of an active spiritual assistant and much more. He was a very active and fraternal national spiritual assistant for about 12 years.

    I remember two events with particular affection: Fr Stephen and I led a weekend at Pantasaph introducing biographies of Francis of Assisi which was lively and informative. Fr Stephen also served Denmark OFS with great fraternal love and concern. I was very impressed by his care and affection when I was invited to join Fr Stephen and John Power in a fraternal visit to Denmark. I know he will be greatly missed in Denmark as well as throughout our national ofs community.
