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 2 video messages below -
- one from Archbishop John himself
- the other from Archdeacon Terry Scott who welcomes Archbishop John on our behalf
The text of Archbishop John's video for the people of the Diocese of Armagh can be found here.
And the text of a message to the wider Church of Ireland can be found here.
