Speaking from their meeting in Glasgow today (11 September), the Catholic Bishop's of Scotland issued the following statement:

"It was with great sadness, that the Bishop's Conference of Scotland learned of the appalling events in the United States today.

We, the Catholic Bishops of Scotland wish to send our deepest condolences to the American government and people, especially those directly affected by
these atrocious and senseless acts.

Prayers will be said at all masses in Scotland on Sunday (16 September), for those who have died, their family and their friends."

Mass, which will be attended by all the Bishops, at Scotus College on Wednesday morning (12 September) will be offered for all those involved.

ENDS
