Motion text

That this House notes with sadness the death of Emeritus Bishop of Dunkeld Diocese Vincent Logan at the age of 79, recognises that Dunkeld Diocese covers parishes across Angus, Dundee, Perthshire, Clackmannanshire and North East Fife; understands that Bishop Logan’s passing followed the day after the Archbishop of Glasgow, Philip Tartaglia, also passed away; notes that Bishop Logan was, upon his episcopal ordination in 1981 at the age of 39, once one of the youngest bishops in the world and commends the compassion and energy that he brought to his position; and extends its sympathy and condolences to all in the Diocese of Dunkeld who knew and were close to Bishop Logan including his successor Bishop Stephen Robson and to the wider Scottish Catholic community who have experienced two sad and significant losses in a very short space of time.
