A Tribute to the Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh

The Rev. Dr. Thomas McKnight, the President of the Methodist in Ireland and Mrs. Hazel Loney, the Lay Leader of Conference have, on behalf of the Methodist Church in Ireland have issued the following Statement on the death of the Duke of Edinburgh:

The members of the Methodist Church in Ireland join with millions of others around the world in offering our sympathy
to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth and her whole family on the death of the Duke of Edinburgh.

His life has been one of service from his distinguished war time service in the Royal Navy to his role as consort for over
70 years.

The Duke will be remembered for many things such as the award which bears his name and which opened up a whole
new world of skills and activities which enriched and continue to enrich the lives of generations of young people.

Most of all the Duke will be remembered as a loving husband and support to Her Majesty - a love which death cannot break.

We commend Her Majesty, her family and all who mourn the Duke's passing to the love of God.
