Scotland’s Bishops have announced their intention to set up a “Care of Creation Office” ahead of the COP26 meeting in Glasgow later this year.

Commenting on the decision, Bishop William Nolan, the Bishop of Galloway and President of the National Justice & Peace Commission said: “On Pentecost Sunday (23 May 2021) we mark the 5th anniversary of Laudato Si, Pope Francis’ encyclical letter on care for our common home. It reminds all Catholics of their responsibilities towards one another and the world we live.

"Inspired by the Pope’s letter and in preparation for the COP26 conference taking place in Glasgow in November, the Bishops’ Conference has decided to set-up a “Care of Creation Office” this year.”

Bishop Nolan added: “The Office’s aim will be to give practical advice and guidance: helping dioceses and parishes assess their carbon footprint and discern how to work towards carbon neutrality, it will be headed by Fr Gerard H Maguiness the General Secretary of the Bishops’ Conference.

"God has honoured us by giving humanity the task of being a co-operator in the work of creation we hope our lives enhance and build-up that creation and pray that the meeting of world leaders in Glasgow later this year bear fruit for our planet.”

The announcement of the new office coincides with a National Pastoral letter from Scotland’s Bishops being distributed to all parishes next Sunday on the theme of caring for creation.

The new edition of Flourish is out this weekend. The front page focuses on the Holy Father's appeal to pray the Rosary to end the pandemic.

Inside is coverage of the Rome ordination of Glasgow's new deacon.

The centre spread is a special feature on the restoration of the Cathedral which was completed 10 years ago at this time. Inside you will find lots of news from round the parishes and from the Church worldwide, including a book review by Fr Joe Sullivan, scripture notes by Fr Tom Kilbride, Fr Frank Keevins' trip down memory lane and a preview of how our schools are preparing for the COP 26 Climate Change conference which is coming to Glasgow later this year. 

All this and more FREE to take away (and remember to take an extra copy if you know of someone who can't manage to church! Digital edition online at www.flourishnewspaper.co.uk

Pray the Rosary to end the pandemic … that’s the heartfelt plea of Pope Francis this Marian month as he urges Catholics across the globe to take part in a "marathon" of prayer.

The Holy Father has called on Shrines around the world to take part in this initiative, so that they may become powerhouses of the prayer of the entire Church.

The Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization, entrusted by the Holy Father with the task of organizing the event, has drawn up a list of the world’s most famous shrines and set up internet links with them to allow people to move virtually across continents to implore the help of Our Lady.

A Year of St Joseph has been proclaimed by the Holy Father Francis in honour of the 150th anniversary of the saint’s proclamation as patron of the Universal Church by Pope Pius IX on Dec. 8, 1870.

Pope Francis said he was establishing the year so that “every member of the faithful, following his example, may strengthen their life of faith daily in the complete fulfillment of God’s will.”

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.

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.
