UCU@GCU welcomes the post from university management this afternoon, that ‘following due consultation’, Father Mark Morris, erstwhile Catholic Chaplain at GCU, will not be returning to his chaplaincy role at GCU:
The university statement is below:
Yesterday the University expressed “extreme disappointment” on learning our Catholic chaplain Father Mark Morris had held a service at his parish church to atone for the “gross offence” of Pride Glasgow. Today University Principal, Prof Pamela Gillies CBE FRSE, said
“Following due consultation, Father Mark Morris will not return to his chaplaincy role at the University in September. The University will work with the Archdiocese of Glasgow to ensure the continued provision of chaplaincy support for students and staff at our Faith and Belief Centre when the new term starts.
The University is strongly inclusive and committed to supporting equality and diversity on campus.”
