Dear Friends in Christ,


The Rev. Canon Granville Victor Henthorne, Jr. DD died peacefully this morning at 10:00 a.m. at St. Joseph's Hospital in Bangor, Maine after a brief illness. His family was at his side at the time of his passing along with Fr. Jeff Monroe and Deacon Ian Dunn.



Canon Henthorne was a faithful servant of Our Lord and we will all miss him. At the time of his passing, he was Rector of St. Thomas Anglican Church in Ellsworth, Maine. He served as well as President and Dean of Logos House of Studies and Canon Theologian of the Diocese. His energy and enthusiasm for Classical Anglicanism was truly an example for us all.



Canon Henthorne was born in Providence, Rhode Island on November 9, 1930. He received his BA from Boston University in 1952. He was awarded a Bachelors degree in Sacred Theology from Berkeley Divinity School in 1955 and a Masters degree in Sacred Theology in 1967. He was granted an Honorary Doctor of Divinity Degree from Logos House in 2008.



Ordained to the priesthood in March, 1956, he served parishes in the Episcopal Church until 1980. He served as Assistant Priest at the Cathedral of St. John in Providence, Rhode Island from 1955-56. He served as Rector of All Saints, Warwick, Rhode Island from 1956-59, Trinity Church, Portland, Connecticut from 1959-72 and St. George's Episcopal Church in Central Falls, Rhode Island from 1973-80. He went on to serve St. Thomas in the late 1990's and was responsible for the building of their new church in 2006 and the Logos House Library last year.



Canon Henthorne is survived by his wife, Priscilla, and two children, Priscilla and Robert.



His funeral service will be held at St. Thomas Anglican Church in Ellsworth, Maine on Saturday, October 13 at 11:00 a.m. Internment will be in Rhode Island on Monday October 15th.



"Rest eternal grant him, O Lord, and light perpetual shine upon him."





The Bishop will be celebrant at the funeral service.

Deacon Dunn is handling arrangements at St. Thomas.
