About Us


Since the start of Lockdown, for the first time in a century and a half, Catholics in Scotland have been without a national publication.

It’s a loss that’s left a void because our community needs a voice. A voice we can believe, that cuts through the gossip and the arguments so we can speak to one another and understand what we as Catholics are living through.

Conceived and developed by Ian Dunn, a former editor of the Scottish Catholic Observer, and Dan McGinty and Mary McGinty, who bring a wealth of experience from the printing and publishing industries, our team have nearly 50 years of media experience, particularly in the Catholic press the Scottish Catholic is the magazine for Scottish Catholics.

We know the media and we know the Church. The pandemic has shown that there is a real hunger among Scottish Catholics to engage with their faith in new ways, and this magazine will do that.
