John McIntyre Funeral Details

Friends, I am in regular receipt of emails from senior figures in the Anglican Church of Australia ammending the date. This is my best attempt at getting correct information to you.

I understand that John’s funeral will be held on Tuesday 17 June, 11am, at St Saviour’s, Redfern in Sydney where John was rector for 12 years.

Peter Corney will preach.

There will be a memorial service at a later date, at St Paul’s Cathedral, Sale, Gippsland Diocese.

Update received from the Primate of Australia

At his family’s request, and so that his elderly parents can be present along with many of John’s former parishioners at Redfern, the funeral for Bishop John McIntyre will be at St Saviour’s, Redfern, at 11 am on Tuesday June 17. It will be followed by a private cremation at 3 pm.

A Memorial Eucharist, at which it is hoped fellow bishops and other church leaders may be able to be present to celebrate Bishop John’s life and ministry, will be held on Friday June 20 at 1 p.m. at St Paul’s Cathedral, Sale. Mrs Jan McIntyre and John’s children will be present and participating in this celebration.
