In Memoriam Dr Sr Mary Cecily Boulding OP

5 Jan 2023

It is with sadness that the Dicastery for Promoting Christian Unity has learned of the death Sr Mary Cecily Boulding. Sr M. Cecily was a member of the English Dominican Congregation of St Catherine of Siena.

A committed scholar and ecumenist, Sr M. Cecily taught Systematic Theology at Ushaw College, near Durham, England for many years and was a much-sought speaker on theological and spiritual topics throughout the United Kingdom. She served with distinction on the English and Welsh Anglican-Roman Catholic Committee (ARC) and from 1983-1990, was a member of the Anglican-Roman Catholic International Commission (ARCIC II).


Sr M. Cecily’s funeral will take place at the mother house of her congregation in Stone, Staffordshire, on 24 January 2023.


Requiescat in pace.
