Plans to relocate the Pontifical Scots College in Rome have been backed by Pope Francis.

Archbishop Leo Cushley met with the Holy Father at the Vatican on last month to discuss the proposed move.

Speaking after the meeting, Archbishop Cushley said: “Pope Francis expressed his full support for the intentions of the Bishops’ Conference of Scotland to move the college into Rome city centre.

“I was delighted to hear that and I know my fellow bishops will be too.”

The decision to relocate the seminary, where young men in Scotland train for the priesthood, was announced in December after building upgrades were deemed too costly.

The current college is on the Via Cassia, around 10km from the city centre. The Bishops aim to sell the building and believe a more central location is the best option for the formation needs of the community and for future provision.

Archbishop Cushley added: “Saying goodbye, the Pope asked for our prayers for him, which I was happy to promise him on behalf of Scotland’s Catholics”.

Are you looking for a chance to grow in faith? Make new friends? Could you help someone else to do the same?

SPRED (Special Religious Development) is the organisation that supports parishes to welcome their members who have a learning disability and supports people who have a learning disability to play a full part in the life of the Church.

We work in small friendly groups across the Archdiocese. Each volunteer is matched with a person who needs SPRED's support (a friend). Together we grow in faith and take part in parish life.

Pope Francis will not offer a public Mass during his short visit to Glasgow in November, despite recent misleading press reports

The Holy Father will visit the city for only a few hours to attend the COP26 gathering where he is expected to address world leaders before returning to Rome.

The date of the Holy Father’s visit to the city has not yet been finalised but the Pope has repeatedly emphasised the moral dimension of the climate emergency and the obligation of all to help protect the planet.

Earlier this year in a message for Earth Day he said: “We have the instruments. This is the moment to act. We are at the edge.We need to ensure that the environment is cleaner, purer and that it is conserved. We must care for nature so that nature may care for us."

Social distancing indoors has now ended and there is no obligation to keep 1m distance between household groups. For those who are still wary about being too close, one side of the cathedral has been reserved for social distancing. It is still essential to provide track and trace details, wear face masks and sanitise hands.

Scotland’s official Catholic Aid Agency is launching an appeal to parishioners to sign a petition to the Prime Minister ahead of the COP26 climate change conference to be held in Glasgow in November, at which Pope Francis is expected to participate.

SCIAF point out that with climate change already having a devastating impact on the world's poorest communities, time is running out.

Parishioners are asked to write to the PM urging him to do three things:

Technology offers us the possibility of assisting at Mass even when we cannot be physically present.

Even though it is now possible to celebrate Mass with a congregation once more, covid regluations mean not all who would wish to go to Mass can find a place. Therefore many parishes will continue to reach out through digital means to those who cannot come to church.
