New Scottish archbishop to bring Papal message to the young after his ordination today

The newly ordained Archbishop of St Andrews and Edinburgh will make a special plea this morning (Saturday Sept 21) asking young Catholics to carry the Gospel forwards to the next generation.

After his Episcopal ordination at 11am, Mgr Leo Cushley, named as the next Archbishop of St Andrews and Edinburgh by Pope Francis on July 24, will convey a special message for the young people of the archdiocese from the Holy Father.

“He told me to have a special care for all of you, and to make sure that you have the best preparation for your adult lives from our Catholic schools,” Archbishop Cushley is expected to say after he is consecrated by Cardinal James Harvey, from Wisconsin, US, Mgr Cushley’s first superior in the Secretariat of State and long-time colleague in the diplomatic service.
