“I commend the new Archbishop of Armagh, Richard Clarke, to the prayers and love of the people of the Diocese of Down and Dromore.
Richard began his ministry in Holywood Parish in the 1970s, so was formed in those early days by his experience in this diocese.
He brings many important gifts to his new role, as a clear–thinking theologian, a direct and clear communicator, and a person who has proven his faith in Christ in difficult times.
He takes up the new role of Archbishop of Armagh at both a challenging time, and a time of great potential for the Church in Ireland, and I warmly welcome his appointment as both a fellow–bishop and a friend over more than forty years.”
