Right Reverend Patrick McKinney

On Friday 1st December, we will celebrate the life of baby Indi Gregory at Nottingham Cathedral and entrust her precious soul to God’s love. We wish to express the Church’s care and closeness to her grieving family at this difficult time.

As a Church we will continue to contribute to wider discussions on questions of when treatment becomes disproportionate to any possible benefit, the duty of the continuation of basic care and the rights of parents. You can read more about this, here.

Over the coming week, and especially on Friday, we hope you will understand that our sole concern will be supporting Indi’s family as they prepare to lay her to rest.

May baby Indi rest in peace, and may all who loved her find consolation in the days ahead.
