A Christmas Message from the Archbishops of Armagh

The annual Christmas message from the Catholic and Church of Ireland Archbishops of Armagh was broadcast on Christmas Day on RTÉ One television and RTÉ Radio 1, and is now available online via the RTÉ Player and the Church of Ireland’s YouTube channel.

This year, the message was filmed in Dungannon, County Tyrone, on the theme of the family.

Music was provided by cross–community choirs from schools in the town.  The Archbishops met with families from local and migrant backgrounds at the Family Learning Centre at St Patrick’s Primary School and visited the BCM food bank which serves families in need living in Dungannon and neighbouring rural communities.
