The Bishops of Scotland have issued advice to guide parishes and clergy as they prepare for the gradual re-opening of our churches in line with the Scottish Government's phased approach to ending the "lockdown" occasioned by the coronavirus pandemic. This page has some essential information and documents. Visit the Bishops' Conference website for more details (ww.bcos.org.uk)
Jubilee of Mercy
Visit the official page of the Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy, which ran from December 2015 until November 2016.
The Roman Missal Scotland
Musical settings of missal texts must receive an imprimatur from the Bishops' Conference in whose territory they first seek to publish. Click above for a Guide for Composers for those who seek to publish such settings for liturgical use in Scotland.
The St Mungo Singers
The Church seeks the “full, conscious and active participation” by all the faithful in the liturgy, a fundamental aim for all those involved in public worship.
