Eric Waldram Kemp, Bishop, 1915-2009

St Stephen's House mourns the loss of Eric Waldram Kemp who served as Bishop of Chichester from 1974-2001. He trained at the House from 1936-1939 and later chaired the House Council. In 2008 a lecture room at St Stephen's House was named after him in recognition of his outstanding service and contribution to the life of the Church and as one of the most celebrated students of the House. His autobiography, published in 2006, was edited by Canon Jeremy Haselock (SSH 1980-83).
Jesu mercy, Mary pray.
