Brother Michael Strode OCSO, who died aged 96 on 27 December 2019, was a saintly man whose life inspired thousands of others. A group of family, friends and former colleagues have formed the Committee for Brother Michael’s Cause (CBMC) to look into the possibility that he might be acknowledged a Saint. 

The first step towards canonisation (see Process Explained) is to encourage people who had known him, or been affected by knowledge of his life of prayer and service, to write about their experience of Michael, and how he had touched their lives. It is lovely to read tributes to him, and many of us can attest to his wonderful qualities.

The following document is intended as a guide only, but may provide a useful prompt when writing your own testimonial in support of the cause. Clicking on it will take you through to a version you my like to print.

Anyone wishing to share their thoughts about the life of Brother Michael should write to CBMC at Oakfield Park, 32 Bilton Road, Rugby CV22 7HQ or 

All letters will be catalogued and in due course handed, unaltered, to a ‘Postulator’, the person appointed by the Church to determine whether there are grounds for proceeding with the process of canonisation.  

Do please pray for the success of our mission. And, although public veneration is not allowed, we can all pray privately to Brother Michael for our own intentions.
