The Guild’s Executive Council has released a statement on the appointment of a new Master:

The Executive Council of the Guild of Our Lady of Ransom is delighted to announce that they have, with the blessing of our Patron, the Archbishop of Southwark, nominated a new Master, Monsignor John Armitage. The Executive Council wishes to express its gratitude to the Bishop of Brentwood for his agreement to allow Mgr Armitage to carry out the role of Master alongside his new role in the diocese as parish priest of St Margaret and All Saints, Canning Town. Mgr Armitage will be the Guild’s fifth Master and his appointment, subject to approval by the Guild’s Ransomers at the next Annual Business Meeting, follows the sad death of the fourth Master, Monsignor Anthony Stark, Prot. Ap., KCHS, who was Master Emeritus from 2010 to 2020. The Master of the Guild of Our Lady of Ransom serves for a five-year term, and may be re-appointed for a further five-year term.The Master’s role is to promote the Guild’s objectives of re-converting England and Wales to the Roman Catholic faith, restoration of the lapsed and prayer for the forgotten dead.”
