Friday 1st September 2017

 I am writing to let you know the sad news that Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor died peacefully this afternoon, surrounded by his family and friends.

Please pray for the repose of his soul.  Pray, too, for his family, and those many friends and colleagues from the Diocese and far beyond who mourn his loss.

Information about the funeral rites for the Cardinal will be circulated as soon as possible.

With my good wishes and prayers,

Cardinal Vincent Nichols
