Fr Stan Dye MAfr

Stan was a truly outstanding priest, friend and colleague.  Over many years working alongside him as a visiting director at St. Beuno’s I learned hugely to value his calm good sense, his humour, humility and extraordinary courage.  He was a shrewd and compassionate supervisor from whom I learned a great deal.  He had a beautiful and understated way of celebrating the Mass which was always deeply impressive, and he never took himself too seriously!

I often disussed issues around my own questions and struggles in religious life with him and he sometimes shared his own – they showed someone who lived his religious life with great dedication as well as a good deal of horse sense and an entire lack of illusion…

I shall miss him greatly when I go back to St. Beuno’s, but look forward to seeing him again in our Father’s house.  May he rest in peace and rise in glory.
