Fr Gerard W Hughes RIP

We are saddened to hear of the death of the Jesuit priest, author and spiritual guide, Fr Gerry W Hughes SJ, at the age of 90.

Gerard W. Hughes was born on 24 March 1924 in Skelmorlie, Ayrshire, and entered the Society of Jesus in 1942. After studying at Heythrop College (at that time in Oxfordshire) and Campion Hall, Oxford, he was ordained in 1958, and made his final vows as a Jesuit at Stonyhurst College, Lancashire, three years later.

'Gerry W' (as he was affectionately known) will probably be best remembered for his inspiring talks and books. His 1985 book God of Surprises was described by Gerald Priestland as "one of the great books of spiritual guidance". His final book, Cry of Wonder, was published on 23 October 2014, shortly before his death on 4 November.
