Rome: new Rector and Vice-Rector at Scots College

 The Bishops' Conference of Scotland have announced the appointment of a new Rector and a new Vice-Rector for the Scots College in Rome. The Bishops have appointed Father Paul Malaria as Rector of the Scots College and Father Francis Dougan as vice-Rector. Fr Paul Milarvie currently holds the post of Vice Rector and so will remain in Rome, while Father Dougan will transfer from Our Lady and St. Anne's Parish in Hamilton later this month. Commenting on his appointment, Fr Dougan who is also chaplain to Holy Cross High School in Hamilton said: "It is exciting but a bit daunting at the same time. I pray that I am up to the challenge. Although glad to face this future challenge I will be sad to leave the parish and school." Bishop Divine said: "while immensely sorry to lose a priest such as Fr Frank, I know he will be an excellent addition to the staff of Scots College and a great support to the new Rector Fr Paul Milarvie."
