On Sunday, June 29, 2014, the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul, Archbishop Leo Cushley will receive his Pallium from Pope Francis. The Pallium is an ancient ecclesiastical vestment in the Catholic Church, bestowed by Popes on Metropolitan Archbishops as a symbol of jurisdiction and of communion with the See of Peter.

Archbishop Cushley, who became Archbishop of St Andrews & Edinburgh on 21 September 2013 will travel to Rome with a party of Scots pilgrims and join Archbishops from around the world who will also receive a pallium from the Pope.

Commenting before the ceremony, Archbishop Cushley said;

"I am honoured to receive the Pallium from our Holy Father Pope Francis, the supreme Shepherd of the universal Church, as a sign of communion with him and of our shared pastoral duty towards Christ's flock.   I am delighted that my family and friends and many from the Archdiocese of St Andrews & Edinburgh, especially many young people, have chosen to come on pilgrimage with me to the Tomb of Peter and to greet the Pope.   I also bear the good wishes and affection of many Scots, Catholics and not, who have expressed to me their esteem for the Holy Father.   I hope these days will be a great source of peace and joy for all those present in Rome on this happy occasion."

The ornamentation of the pallium consists of six small black crosses ” one each on the breast and back, one on each shoulder, and one on each pendant. The crosses on the breast, back, and left shoulder are provided with a loop for the reception of a gold pin set with a precious stone.
