Welcome Archbishop John

From the Diocese of Armagh

Bishop John McDowell today “translates” from being Bishop of Clogher to become Archbishop of Armagh. On this momentous day we welcome him and his family, his wife Mary and their daughter Dorothy and pray God’s rich blessing on them for all that lies ahead on their journey.

To mark the occasion , we have two video messages below – one from Archbishop John himself (along with the text of his message) and the other from Archdeacon Terry Scott who welcomes Archbishop John on our behalf – which are available here on the diocesan website.
