St Vincent de Paul
The Parish of St Vincent de Paul is located in East Kilbride and is part of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Motherwell.
With the first minister’s announcement today we have to with great regret once more close the church for public Masses and private prayer with the exception of funerals. This will apply from today. Letter from Fr Ivan can be read here.
Safeguarding in the Catholic Church in Scotland
The Bishops’ Conference of Scotland wish to ensure that there is transparency in the arrangements for Safeguarding in Catholic parishes and organisations throughout Scotland. In 2011 the Bishops established the McLellan Commission to review Safeguarding practice in the Catholic Church in Scotland. Its report was published in 2015, at which time we published our own plan for implementing its recommendations. This plan has led to the publication of IN GOD’S IMAGE which is an ‘Instruction’ from the Bishops of Scotland directing the approach to Safeguarding which must be followed in every Catholic Diocese in Scotland, with effect from 21st May 2018.
For more information about the Church’s Safeguarding approach, visit the Motherwell Diocese website https://www.rcdom.org.uk/safeguarding or the website of the Scottish Catholic Safeguarding Service .
