The Scottish Catholic Parliamentary Office has moved to the capital to be closer to the Scottish Parliament.
Since the inception of the Scottish Parliament in 1999 the parliamentary office had been based in Glasgow. Director, Anthony Horan, believes the relocation of the office to Cowgate in the Old Town will enhance his work with parliamentarians and stakeholders. He said: "I'm absolutely delighted to confirm the completion of the Catholic Parliamentary Office's move to the church house of St Patrick's, Edinburgh.
"Mgr Philip Kerr, parish priest of St Patrick's, has made me feel most welcome and I am privileged to have an office so close to the church and the celebration of the Mass. It is critical to the proper functioning of the Catholic Parliamentary Office that I, as Director, am accessible to our elected representatives and their teams, and that they are accessible to me. That is why the location of our new office, a ten minute walk from Holyrood, will be such an advantage."
The Scottish Catholic Parliamentary Office is now located at: 5 South Gray's Close, 40 High Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1TQ.
