The Archbishop’s Funeral Rites will be celebrated in the Cathedral, subject to the restrictions that are in place.

Funeral Mass on Thursday 21st January at 12 noon, accessible by using this link:

Please continue your prayers for the repose of the Archbishop’s soul and for the comfort of his family.

Even as we are still trying to come to terms with the news of the untimely death of Archbishop Tartaglia, we have begun the process of ensuring the Archdiocese continues to function until the Holy Father appoints a new Archbishop.

The College of Consultors has met several times and today has elected Mgr Hugh Bradley as Diocesan Administrator. Monsignor Hugh has informed the Apostolic Nuncio of his election and the Nuncio has acknowledged this decision and wishes Hugh well in this difficult task.

Please remember Hugh in your prayers at this time.


In view of the current restrictions issued by the Scottish Government, any masses after 7th January 2021 will only be broadcast online. All on line bookings already in place after that date for masses over the weekend will be cancelled as well as the bookings for Friday 8 January. Further information regarding on line broadcasts is shown below. 

As of Thursday 7 January 2021 mass will be broadcast on line at 10am (except on Saturday when it will be broadcast at 4pm). Go to You Tube and search for St Robert Bellarmine Househillwood and the specific date you are looking for, bear in mind that previous broadcasts will still be listed so it is essential that you find the correct date to view the current mass.

Public Worship


The Government have sent the following to faith groups this evening Tuesday 5 January 2021.

The following question was asked of the Scottish Government. The answer is quite clear and concise.

Q. Can we continue with congregations until Friday

A: It is now a legal requirement to stay at home unless it is essential.The Stay at Home guidance is now in regulations and came into force at 0001hrs today and there is no exemption to attend a place of worship between now and Friday. This effectively means that Places of Worship should be closed for both congregational worship and individual prayer with immediate effect. Additionally given the current position in relation to the pandemic the Scottish Government would also discourage more than 5 (or 6, if an interpreter is required) from attending a marriage in a level 4 area before Friday. All associated guidance is being amended now to reflect what will be the regulatory position from Friday. We apologise for the degree of inconsistency in messaging from government but hope that this clears this anomaly up.




Some have asked if we can use halls for overflows for funerals (i.e. have 20 in church and 20 in the hall). I think this would go against the Government guidance and so for funerals we should only have the 20 in the church and not broadcast to halls, etc.
