Bishop of Derry and Raphoe offers Dioceses’ condolences following death of Duke of Edinburgh
“It is with great sadness that I have learned of the death of His Royal Highness, the Duke of Edinburgh,” Bishop Andrew said.
“As the longest–serving consort in British history, Prince Philip was the most loyal and most steadfast supporter of Her Majesty The Queen. We thank God for the Duke’s selfless service as husband, father, grandfather and great–grandfather to our Royal Family, and for his decades of service to the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.
“I am sure I speak for all the parishioners of our united dioceses of Derry and Raphoe in offering condolences to Her Majesty the Queen and her family, and in thanking God for the Duke’s life. We keep the Queen and the members of the Royal Family in our prayers at this time of loss.”
