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

The Catholic Church in Scotland has announced the creation of a new independent Safeguarding agency. Speaking at the end of a national Safeguarding webinar which attracted 450 participants from across Scotland, Bishop Hugh Gilbert, President of the Bishops’ Conference of Scotland, announced the establishment of a new body – the Scottish Catholic Safeguarding Standards Agency (SCSSA).

Bishop Hugh Gilbert said: “The SCSSA will operate entirely independently of the Church and will have its own staff and Board of Management who will work in close collaboration with dioceses and religious communities to ensure that they are able to meet national safeguarding standards. It will also develop a process that will provide an independent review of complaints about safeguarding practice and crucially, establish a forum in which those who have experienced abuse can contribute their own perspectives to the development of safeguarding.”

Bishop Hugh added: “We will shortly commence the recruitment process for the Chair and members of the Board of Management, followed by the recruitment of a Director and a Head of Safeguarding Training. It will take some time to establish the new agency and we ask for your patience and support while that process is underway.”

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.
