As prime minister Blair was a member of the Church of England but was often spotted with his wife and kids at Catholic services. Murphy-O’Connor was quoted as saying, “For a long time he's been a regular worshipper at Mass with his family and in recent months he's been following a program of formation for his reception into full communion. Our prayers are with him, his family and his wife at this joyful moment in their journey of faith together.”
