Press Releases

Added on 04/01/2016

Archbishops of Armagh, New YearArchbishop Richard Clarke and Archbishop Eamon Martin (pictured right) joined together at St Patrick’s Roman Catholic Cathedral Armagh on New Year’s Day – also World Peace Day – along with members of both cathedral congregations.

The two archbishops prayed for peace in this coming year, in the setting of a reading of the Beatitudes.

In particular, the archbishops prayed that people across the island might use the 2016 commemorations as ways in which we might learn to live and work together for a finer future for all in this land and throughout the world.
