Scotland's Bishops are calling for the Scottish Government to allow more flexibility when churches reopen.

Full statement follows:

As Scotland’s Catholic bishops, we welcome the recent announcement by the First Minister foreseeing a return to our churches for the most important celebration of the liturgical year at Easter. We also welcome the recognition of the status of public worship implicit in this decision.

The Catholic Community recognises the seriousness of the pandemic and is committed to working with others to avoid the spreading of infection.

At the same time, we anticipate ongoing dialogue with the Scottish Government regarding the requirement of a numerical “cap” on the number of worshippers. As we continue to observe social distancing and the protocols on infection control and hygiene formulated by the Bishops’ Conference working group under the leadership of the former Chief Medical Officer Sir Harry Burns, we maintain that it would be more appropriate for each church building to accommodate a congregation in proportion to its size rather than on the basis of an imposed number.

This year, due to the closure of church buildings, it will not be possible to attend Lenten Masses and devotions in the normal way.

However we can still mark Lent in a variety of ways. Here are five ideas to help:

1. Attend Mass in one of the many livestreams from parishes throughout the Archdiocese and beyond. You can find listings here:

2. You can hold a short prayer service at home, either alone or with others in your household. Here is a short Way of the Cross provided by the Bishops of Scotland for such a service:

3. You can mark each day by making a special effort at prayer, fasting from some food or legitimate pleasure and almsgiving - think SCIAF and the wee box appeal

4. You can prepare now for Lent by planning well your Lenten journey. You will find some good ideas here:

To mark the Archbishop's month's mind, Monsignor Hugh Bradley, our Archdiocesan Administrator  offered a Mass in the Cathedral. He recalled the Archbishop with these lovely words ...

When I received the phone call from Canon Gerry Tartaglia to inform me that the Archbishop had died the sense of shock was immediate, closely followed by deep sorrow and feelings of loss. Personal loss and diocesan loss.

Over these four weeks I have been moved and impressed by the number of people who have reached out to the Archdiocese, to me personally, to convey their sadness at the death of Archbishop Philip and their gratitude for his presence in their lives. Truly, the life and death of each of us has its influence on others, even to an extent that we might never suspect. I’m sure that Archbishop Philip would have been humbled by the sentiments of affection and loss that have been expressed by so many.

Pope Francis has expressed his sorrow and solidarity with the Archdiocese in a message received today from Cardinal Parolin, the Holy Father's Secretary of State. The message reads:

"His Holiness Pope Francis was deeply saddened to learn of the untimely death of Archbishop Philip Tartaglia, and he offers heartfelt condolence and the assurance of his spiritual closeness to the clergy, religious and lay faithful of the Archdiocese of Glasgow.

Following the death of Archbishop Tartaglia, and in accordance with the rules laid down by the Church’s Code of Canon Law, the College of Consultors of the Archdiocese has elected a Diocesan Administrator.

The new Administrator of the Archdiocese will be Monsignor Hugh Canon Bradley, who has served until now as Vicar General under Archbishop Philip.

Mgr Hugh, having made the required Profession of Faith, now assumes day-to-day control of the functioning of the Archdiocese until the Holy Father, Pope Francis, names a new Archbishop of Glasgow.

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, strict limits mean not all who would wish to go to Mass can find a place. Therefore parishes will continue to reach out through digital means to those who cannot come to church.
