A Message from His Majesty the King to our Parish

Father Edmund

27 Nov 2022

You may recall the Book of Condolence that was opened following the death of Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and sent to His Majesty the King after the Requiem Mass we held for Queen Elizabeth on the day of her State Funeral.

This past week, I received a kind letter from Buckingham Palace, which I am happy to share with you:

‘The King has asked me to thank you for your kind letter and gift. His Majesty is most grateful to you for taking the trouble to send him a book of condolence following the death of his beloved mother. Your thoughtful message and gift are deeply appreciated at this time of immense sorrow and The King would have me send you and the Catholic Community of Ellesmere Port and Hooton his warmest thanks and best wishes.’
