Reverend Peter Lane: Tributes paid to Yorkshire priest who died aged 53 after short illness
Rev Lane died peacefully on January 15 following a short illness.
A statement from his family said: “He chose to minister to those who were most in need, making a conscious decision to share God’s loving word with those excluded from society rather than those who could provide greater worldly rewards.
"As a result he spent his ministry in one of the most underprivileged districts of Leeds in Seacroft and regularly ministered to prisoners, troubled youth, homeless people and those experiencing mental or physical illness. From Sure Start, youth work, meals for the elderly, fundraising and prison outreach, Peter believed in ministering to people’s bodies as well as souls.”
He regularly campaigned for environmental and social welfare issues.
He is survived by his wife, mother, siblings, five daughters and soon to be ten grandchildren.
