Jim Dobbin for SVP website
We mourn the sudden death of Jim, who was a parishioner of St Vincents for many years and was much admired for tireless public service work and especially for his cross party work in the House of Commons for Health, Human Rights and pro-Life. We include a tribute from Cardinal Archbishop Nichols HERE. It is just one of an enormous number.

Our picture (thanks to Mike Davis) is of Jim addressing a Right to Life Rally in Clitheroe about 6 weeks before his untimely death.

May he Rest in Peace!


Like the ripples in a pond, the work of one man
can spread out and touch the lives of many others.

"Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do." (St. John XXIII)
