Bishop Peter (now Emeritus) wrote: “It is with the greatest sadness that I write to let you know that one of the Fransalian priests who help us so much in the Diocese, Father Wilson Sebastian MSFS, did not appear for Mass this morning at St Edward’s, Kettering and was found dead in bed.”

Fr Wilson had been Assistant Priest at Kettering since September 2018, prior to which he was assisting at Our Lady’s, Corby. Aged only 51, he had undergone much medical treatment since arriving in the UK but his sudden passing was an unexpected shock. He was from the Syro-Malabar Archeparchy of  Changanacherry in Kerala. South India.
