It is a great pleasure to welcome you and your families at the start of the new academic year. We would also like to give a special welcome to all new students.
We are looking forward to working with you all over the coming months.
We express our deepest sympathy to the Royal Family at this sad time. May Queen Elizabeth II rest in peace.
Almighty God, source of all consolation,
we pray for the members of the Royal Family who mourn the loss
of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth.
Uphold them in your love
and pour out on them the consolation of your healing Spirit.
Let them find in your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ
comfort in their sadness,
certainty in their doubt
and courage to live through this hour.
We ask this through Christ our Lord
