About the Scottish Catholic Media Office

The SCMO provides a service to the press and media, offering them information and guidance on the activities of the Church in Scotland.

The Office is responsible to the Bishops' Conference of Scotland through its National Communications Commission, whose President is Bishop Philip Tartaglia.


"The Church cannot fail to be ever more deeply involved in the burgeoning world of communications. There must be an active and imaginative engagement of the media by the Church."
Pope John Paul II
