Press releases

Fr Colin Golden, parish priest of Our Lady of Lourdes, welcomed Bishop Stephen Robson, Bishop of Dunkeld, to celebrate the start of Scotland’s youngest branch of the Union of Catholic Mothers on Friday 11th March. Representative of the UCM, both National and Diocesan gathered to witness the news shoots of life for an association that marked its centenary in 2013.

Throughout its history the UCM has been involved with current affairs, particularly those that have an impact on the family. The National Committee ensures that members are kept informed about parliamentary activity and encourages members to exert pressure on matters that concern them. It was the family, domestic, parish and diocesan, that Bishop Stephen reflected on during his homily in the Mass.
