It was with regret that we learnt on the 1st September of the death of Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor, archbishop emeritus of Westminster, who died aged 85.
Cardinal Murphy-O'Connor had been a Patron of the AHT/AHRERC for seventeen years. He became leader of the Roman Catholic Church in England and Wales, as the Most Reverend, Cormac Murphy-O'Connor, Archbishop of Westminster, in March 2000. Shortly after he was installed, he graciously accepted to become a Patron of the AHRERC in the place of Cardinal Basil Hume, our former Roman Catholic Patron, who had died in 1999. He became a Cardinal, himself, in 2001 – and retired from his active role as Archbishop of Westminster in 2009. Obituaries appeared in the press the next day.
May he rest in peace.
