The Committee


We are a group of people who knew or worked with Brother (Doctor) Michael Strode at various stages of his long life. Sharing in his charitable and religious activities, we have been inspired by his charism and his spirituality. We believe that Brother Michael’s extraordinary life deserves to be acknowledged and that the Church in Great Britain would benefit from the proclamation of a new saint from this century. Encouraged by his bishop, and with the blessing of the Abbot of Caldey, we are dedicated to seeking his canonisation.
