Archbishop Tartagalia was amongst the speakers at the Easter Witness for Peace at Faslane on 12 April 2014. This is organised every year by Scottish Christians against Nuclear Weapons. There was a good representation of Justice and Peace activists. The Archbishop reminded us of the Scottish Catholic Bishops consistent record of opposition to nuclear weapons.

He pointed out the cost of these weapons in social, monetary and environmental terms, and referred to his own experience as a priest in nearby Rosneath, and the effect on him of the brooding and sinister presence of the nuclear weapons base.

Others speakers included those from the Quaker Community, the Church of Scotland and the Scottish Episcopal Church. Music and prayer was led by the Wild Goose Worship group of the Iona Community. Read More on the Glasgow Justice and peace webpage
