Paul Pearson writes, “I heard the sad news this evening
that Donald Allchin died on December 23rd
in hospital in Oxford. I had heard a few days ago that he was in
hospital with a viral infection and that he had “developed a rare
form of Alzheimer (it seems) and often was out of reach.” Rev.
Arthur Macdonald Allchin made three visits to see Thomas Merton at
the Abbey of Gethsemani, and was a featured speaker in the past at
an ITMS General Meeting. May he rest in peace.
UPDATE: Paul reports that Donald Allchin’s funeral will be on the 12th of January, at 11am, at St. Mary Magdalene, Oxford, and Rowan Williams will give the address.
