Fr Laurence Quin-Morris passed away peacefully at Holy Cross Nursing Home, Heathfield, East Sussex, England, on 3 June 2024, after a long illness.

Born in Twickenham Surrey on 10 February 1951, he was the son of Mary Bridget Morris (Nee Dooley) and James Morris. He is survived by his sister, Norah Higgerty (Brian); his niece, Jennifer Higgerty of Haute Aboujagane; his nephew, Michael Higgerty (Tara) of Summerside PEI; and his sister, Mary Morris of Billingshurst, UK.

He will also be sadly missed by his cousin, John McGahon (Mairead), Eileen O’Hagan and numerous family members in County Monaghan and County Louth, Ireland, also by his fellow priests and his wide circle of friends.

Ordained to the priesthood in 1976, he was incardinated in the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton for 48 years; the latter part of his priestly life was spent serving the people of Queen of All Saints Pastoral Unit, Moncton, Canada, as Assistant Priest until his Parkinson's forced him to return to the UK.

Fr Laurence's funeral Mass will be celebrated by Bishop Richard at St Joseph's, Redhill, at 12pm on Friday 5 July.

Fr Laurence will be laid to rest with his parents at the Cemetery in Storrington, West Sussex, UK.
