Scottish Catholic Observer to relaunch

SCOTLAND’S only national Catholic newspaper is to relaunch next month.

Says Liz Leydon, the new editor of the Scottish Catholic Observer: “We are moving with the times, continuing to set the agenda while staying fresh and relevant in our readers’ lives.

“We are fostering a lively forum for debate, an exciting tool for education and an active community resource.

“And we are continuing to do what we do best: covering news in Scotland.”

The relaunch is taking place at a reception in Edinburgh on the 13th of next month.

Leydon is a former Scotsman journalist who has also worked extensively in the Middle East and America. She is the first woman editor of the paper.

The Scottish Catholic Observer was founded in 1885.
