A Pastoral Letter to the clergy and lay faithful of the Archdiocese of St Andrews & Edinburgh on the "Apostolate of the Laity" was issued by Archbishop Cushley 14th October 2018. The pastoral letter comes only a week after a very successful conference on the Role of the Laity was hosted by the Archdiocese in Edinburgh. In his letter, he explained that his comments were rooted in the Second Vatican Council’s Decree on the Lay Apostolate, Apostolicam Actuositatem, which stresses the complimentary relationship of the laity and the priesthood. The full Pastoral Letter can be read here.
