Bishops respond to attack on PSNI Police Officer

On behalf of Bishop Treanor, Bishop of Down and Connor, and ourselves, we condemn in the strongest possible terms today’s attack on a young police officer near Randalstown. Such an attack is totally alien to the widespread desire, hope and prayer for a stable and peaceful society. We assure him, his wife and their extended families of our continued prayerful support at this extremely difficult time.

Bishop Anthony Farquhar, Auxiliary Bishop of Down and Connor
Bishop Donal McKeown, Auxiliary Bishop of Down and Connor

ENDS
