A message from our Bishop
As you may know our Diocesan Centre is on the corner of Queen Street and St Vincent Street. Bishop Gregor was on the scene within minutes and has issued the following statement::
“The whole Diocese of Glasgow and Galloway offers our prayers for and condolences to all so suddenly and terribly caught up in this latest tragedy to befall the City of Glasgow. We bless God for the response of our emergency services. The disaster occurred very near our Diocesan Centre and I saw with my own eyes the awful aftermath. I shall not forget what I saw. “
The Rt Revd Dr Gregor Duncan, Bishop of Glasgow and Galloway.
