Fr David Adlington 18 May 1951 – 4 January 2018

The funeral of Fr David John Adlington will take place on Saturday 27 January at 12 noon in St Mary & St Eanswythe’s Parish Church, Folkestone. It will be a full sung Mass at which the Celebrant and Preacher will be Bishop Trevor Wilmott, the Bishop in Canterbury.

After the Mass, everyone is warmly welcome to the St Eanswythe’s School Hall, across the road from the church, for refreshments and the opportunity to share fond thoughts and memories of David. There will be a private family cremation at Hawkinge following the Mass.

The family request no flowers but donations to two organisations dear to David’s heart: The Additional Curates Society and Canterbury Cathedral
