The late Hilary & the Most Revd Dr Barry Morgan.

The wife of the Most Revd Dr Barry Morgan, the Primate of the Church in Wales and the Bishop of Llandaff, Hilary Morgan, passed away in her home Friday, 15 JAN 2016. She had been fighting cancer for the previous 20 months. Dr Morgan thanked those who had offered prayers for her and his family;

Hilary appreciated the care and concern you all showed and we were both upheld in a way I cannot describe by your prayers.  She fought bravely over the last 20 months and never complained.  She died without pain and at home as she and all of us wanted.  All we can do now is release her into God’s tender hands.

The Bishop of Swansea and Brecon, John Davies, said;

Throughout the Archbishop’s ministry, Hilary had been a source of wonderful support and help to him. Her loss will be keenly felt and I am sure the entire Church in Wales would wish to assure the Archbishop and his family of our love and prayers as they grieve privately.

Her funeral service will be next Friday, JAN 22 at 2pm in Llandaff Cathedral.

The announcement is from the Church in Wales website.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
