Remembering HRH The Duke of Edinburgh

HRH The Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh

It was with great sadness that we learned on Friday of Prince Philip’s death. As we pray for the repose of his soul, we pray also that the Holy Spirit will comfort and uphold Her Majesty The Queen and all the members of the Royal Family in their bereavement. May he rest in peace and rise in glory.
