Faith Leaders' Coronavirus Statement

Thursday March 12 2020

Four Scottish faith leaders have issued a joint statement urging people to follow health guidelines and look out for the vulnerable and isolated during the Coronavirus crisis.

The statement from the leaders of the three largest Christian denominations and a senior Muslim cleric reads: “As faith leaders in Scotland, along with others we are concerned about the spread of the Coronavirus. We therefore invite everyone in our society to be safe themselves, and respectfully remind everyone of their responsibility to others for their health and wellbeing. Society thrives when we look after each other, and so we urge everyone to follow guidelines from the health authorities and we invite people to look out for those who are especially vulnerable and those who are isolated at this time.”

It is signed by the Most Rev Mark Strange, Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church; the Most Rev Leo Cushley, Roman Catholic Archbishop of St Andrews and Edinburgh; the Rt Rev Colin Sinclair, Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland and Imam Sayed Ali Abbas Razawi, Director General and Chief Imam of the Scottish Ahlul Bayt Society.
