A Statement from Bishop Ferran Glenfield following the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

‘The death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth marks the end of an extraordinary life and era.

The Queen was known the world over for her exceptional sense of duty and selfless service.

The well spring for her long reign was her deep Christian faith expressed in love. She loved and was loved in return by so many people. On behalf of the pastors and people of Kilmore, Elphin and Ardagh, I offer condolences and prayers for the Royal Family and the people of the United Kingdom and Commonwealth.’
