Statement on Fergusons of Port Glasgow from Bishop John Keenan, Bishop of Paisley   23 August 2014   Commenting on the closure of the Ferguson Shipbuilders yard in Port Glasgow, Bishop John Keenan said:   Together with the entire community of Port Glasgow and the whole population of Inverclyde, I was deeply saddened to hear the news last week that Ferguson Shipbuilders in Port Glasgow had gone into administration after more than 100 years in business.   My thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by this news; the employees themselves, but also their families and the wider community for whom this yard had been a landmark on the Clyde f...

Bishop Keenan on three person embryos

Posted by SCMO on 3rd February 2015 in Christianity | Bishop Keenan, three person embryos, human fertilisation and embryology
Following today's vote in the House of Commons to allow three person embryos, Bishop John Keenan, the Bishop of Paisley said; "The proposed techniques fail on a number of ethical grounds which should concern us all: They destroy human life, since in order to construct a disease free embryo, two healthy ones will have to be destroyed.

Their departure is Scotland s loss, as a nation we will be culturally and spiritually impoverished without a Jewish...

....”   Bishop Keenan added:   “Although no evidence has emerged of cases or clusters connected to our churches, we have every confidence that, if parishes continue their high standards of infection control, then public worship and parish life can carry on and we will continue to be able to attend to the spiritual welfare of the nation.”   “Among the many terrible effects of this pandemic is a surge in cases of depression, hopelessness and suicide. The loss of normality in all its facets has left many feeling bereft and desolate, in need of spiritual solace, like never before. It is in times of greatest peril that we need the spiritual comfort of p...

Mercy Bus Takes To The Road Again

Posted by SCMO on 26th July 2019 in Blogging |
....    Bishop Keenan added;   “The Mercy Bus works because so many lay men and women reach out to shoppers in the environment of the Bus and invite them to go in to chat with the priests inside or receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  So, the Mercy Bus is a sign of the essence of the Church where lay faithful go out to their peers to welcome into the pastoral care of priests who teach and heal.”   ENDS   Peter Kearney  Director  Catholic Media Office  5 St. Vincent Place  Glasgow  G1 2DH  Tel:    0141 221 1168 Mob:  07968 122291 ISDN: 0141 204 4956   Notes to Editors:   - For further inf...
