His Royal Highness, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh RIP
On behalf of the Catholic Community of the Archdiocese of Southwark, I wish to express my profound sorrow at the news of the death of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh.
In union with the entire nation, we mourn the loss of not only an esteemed and respected member of the Royal Family but also a man who exemplified the very best qualities of courage, fortitude and loyalty. Although born into a very different world, his example and witness leave us, here in this present age, with a lasting and enduring legacy of the timeless paradigm of duty and service.
In this season of Eastertide, when we celebrate the resurrection of the Lord Jesus and his victory over death, we pray that His Royal Highness will rest in peace and rise in glory. We also remember in our prayers Her Majesty the Queen and all members of the Royal Family at this sad time, offering to them our sincerest condolences.
Archbishop John Wilson
Colin Dunne RIP
Colin will be buried on Thursday 22 April.
The service will be held at St Mary’s Church, Chislehurst, with Fr Francis, and Fr Luke co-celebrating, at 12 noon. He will be buried later that afternoon at Hither Green Cemetery.
The funeral procession will slow down outside Our Lady & St Philip Neri Church and School around 10.40am for those wishing to pay their respects, since COVID restrictions apply to the number of attendees at funerals.
Please remember Colin on this day and pray for his widow and two children.
