Archbishop of Armagh asks for prayers for HM King Charles III


Archbishop John McDowell has issued the following statement:

'I was saddened to learn of the King’s diagnosis of cancer and ask that the King and his family should be remembered in public prayer and in our private devotions at what will be an anxious time for many people.

'The words 'Long live the King' are no empty formula or weary cliché, but are an expression of the heartfelt desire of many people across these islands and far beyond,' said Archbishop McDowell.
