The Catholic Church in Glasgow is issuing an extraordinary appeal during the month of November to anyone who may have been affected by any kind of abuse at the hands of clergy or church officials … ‘tell us where we went wrong and how we can do better’.

During the designated month, The Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCEI) is conducting an external, independent review of the Archdiocese of Glasgow to hear from people with first-hand experience of how the Archdiocese has responded to reports of abuse.

A spokesman for the Archdiocese said: “This is a genuine attempt to listen and learn. The Social Care Institute is a totally independent body which will conduct this month long audit. The Archdiocese will have no role except to help to publicise that the audit is taking place, and that the external team want to hear directly from abuse survivors.

“The Social Care Institute wants to understand what is happening today and what has gone wrong in the past. They are looking at the responses of people in diocesan roles to knowledge of abuse by clergy or risks posed by clergy and others in Church-related roles, paid or voluntary.

“While the audit will concentrate on the last 5 years, we recommend that anyone who has experience of how we have dealt with abuse claims should speak to SCIE staff directly. Nobody at any level in the Church will be told that they are taking part. What they you? tell SCIE will be confidential and will not be shared with the Archdiocese except as part of an overall report which will absolutely not identify any individual.”

Dr Sheila Fish, SCIE Head of Audit and Review, said: “We want to understand what is working well and where there are problems. We want to hear from people with first-hand experience of how people in diocesan roles have responded to disclosures of abuse or sharing of concerns.”

When the work has been completed the Archdiocese will publish the report and copies will be made available to survivors.

Anyone who may wish to report on their experience should contact SCIE directly by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by phone on 07921 251614. SCIE will then get in touch to arrange a time to report to the auditors in a way that suits each individual.

With great sorrow we announce the death after a long illness of Mgr Peter Smith, former chancellor of the Archdiocese and PP of St Paul’s Whiteinch.

Funeral arrangements as follows: The reception and vigil will take place at St Paul's Whiteinch on Friday October 22 at 7pm. Mgr Peter's Requiem Mass will take place on Saturday October 23 at 12 noon in St Paul's and he will be later laid to rest at St Peter's Cemetery, Dalbetth.

Mgr Peter who was 62, was a much loved priest well known and respected for his service across the Church in Scotland. He was a fine Canon lawyer and devoted priest. He served Cardinal Winning and Archbishop Conti as Chancellor, sreved the Holy See's Mission to the United Nations in New York, worked tirelessly in the organisation of the Papal visit of Pope Benedict, while remaining a friendly and compassionate priest, always anxious to serve God and His Church.  

He has borne the burden of serious illness heroically for many years and was a great example of faith and perseverance to all who knew him

Requiescat in pace

Pope Francis will not travel to Scotland for the COP 26 summit. The Vatican delegation will, instead, be led by Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Pope's Secretary of State.

The Holy Father has said in previous interviews that he had hoped to visit the city for only a few hours to attend the COP26 gathering to address world leaders before returning to Rome.

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.
