New Archbishop for Glasgow, Scotland

The Vatican announces today the resignation of Archbishop Mario Conti on having reached the age of retirement and the transfer of Bishop Philip Tartaglia from the diocese of Paisley to the Archdiocese of Glasgow. This is wonderful news. Congratulations to Archbishop Tartaglia and to the people of Glasgow.

There are a number of vacant or soon-to-be-vacant dioceses in Great Britain and prayers are obviously needed that further good appointments are made.

  1. At his episcopal ordination, Bishop Phil had as co-Consecrator Archbishop, now Cardinal, Raymond Leo Burke. They are friends from their days as students of the Greg. It is to be hoped that His Eminence will manage to come to Glasgow for the installation on Saturday, September 8.
