Old Rutherford Building Decommissioning Ceremony, Sunday 13th July 2014. 

To mark this summer’s demolition of the Old Rutherford Building after 44 years of service, a very select gathering of Old Rutherfordians; Charles Gerada (R’90), Barney de Burca (R’96), Corrado di Mascio (R’96), Kevin Solan (R’90), David Wiehe (R’90) and Fred Bradley (R’04), as well as a St Bede’s Worthian Spectator – James Eade (StB’90) – returned to say one last farewell at a Decommissioning Ceremony held after 9:30am Parish Mass.  Following a short reading ( Matthew, Chapter 7, 24-7) and a prayer given by Fr James, with a melancholic air memories were exchanged and the Cardboard Castle was blessed on its way!


We have been informed of the tragic death of Simon Douglas-Dufresne (G’81) in a plane crash in Lima, Peru, on 7 July 2014.  Our hearts and prayers go out to his large extended family.  Tributes to Simon can be found and added on the following website – please visit:
