Commenting today (Friday 6th November) in advance of services across England and Wales on Remembrance Sunday, Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor, Archbishop of Westminster and President of the Bishops Conference of England and Wales, said:
“ We must never forget the sacrifice that so many men and women have made to ensure our freedom and safeguard peace.
“ It is right for us to come together as a community to remember those who have died in the service of their country, both in the World wars and in conflicts since.
' We pray for those who have died and those who have served. We keep them and their families in our prayers.'
