Scots Catholic would like to congratulate John Deighan on his appointment to the post of Chief Executive of SPUC Scotland.
The Parliamentary Officer for the Bishops' Conference of Scotland will take up his new role next month.
The Bishops of Scotland have thanked John for his "resolute and dedicated service" and Archbishop Philip Tartaglia said: "John has provided dedicated and energetic service to the church in Scotland for sixteen years and we wish him well in his new role. His ability to skilfully analyse political development and track legislative changes has been immensely helpful to the Bishops' Conference."
He added: "The links between the church and the SPUC in Scotland are already strong, but they will be strengthened and renewed as a result of John's appointment."
Please keep John in your prayers as he embarks on this new role and also keep the great work of the SPUC in your prayers as they continue to promote the sanctity of all life.
