CATHOLIC VOTING RIGHTS the Catholic Church and others presently have the right in Scotland to sit in the Council education committees and to vote on matters affecting our Catholic schools.  On 22 August, the City of Edinburgh Council is to vote on a Green Party motion to remove those voting rights. If this motion is carried it will pose a serious threat to the Church’s capacity to influence decisions regarding Catholic education and Catholic Schools in the City of Edinburgh. I would therefore ask you to contact your local councillors as a matter of urgency to vote against this motion. Write to your councillor soon: to facilitate a numerous response, a template letter will be available on postcards at all Masses next weekend.  With thanks and every blessing, +Leo Cushley”
PS His Grace alerts all of us to this proposal being put before Edinburgh Council to remove the voting rights of Catholic Church representatives, in order to make us vigilant and ready to respond should any similar proposal arise in our own Council area.
