At their Summer General Meeting in Maynooth, bishops offered prayers for those who have died, for the injured as well as for the emergency services who responded to the scene of the fire early this morning at the Grenfell Tower block in North Kensington, London.  Bishops will remember the victims and their families at Mass, as well as those who have died in recent terrorist attacks in Britain, and assure all those affected of the prayerful solidarity of the faithful across Ireland.

The Summer 2017 General Meeting of the Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference concluded this afternoon in Columba Centre, Saint Patrick’s College, Maynooth, Co Kildare.
