The Rt Revd Alan Abernethy, Bishop of Connor, has paid tribute to James Molyneaux, Baron Molyneaux of Killead, who has died at the age of 94.
Bishop Abernethy said: “James Molyneaux was a man of devotion and loyal service. As a parishioner of St Catherine’s, Killead (Aldergrove), since childhood, weekly worship and choir membership were integral to his life, the hallmarks of someone who made a faithful contribution to his local as well as the wider community. He will be greatly missed.
“I wish to express gratitude for his service to God and the Church and to acknowledge the distinctive part he played in political life here as well as in his role in the RAF during the Second World War and the liberation of Belsen. Lord Molyneaux’s family circle is in our prayers at this time.”
