That the Parliament welcomes the Bishops' Conference to an event in the Garden Lobby on 27 November 2018, which will showcase the contribution that the Catholic Church makes to society in Scotland and at which the relics of St Andrew will be on display in a rare appearance; further welcomes the exhibition for Members that has organised by the Scottish Catholic Education Service to mark the centenary of the Education (Scotland) Act 1918 and will include a replica of the stunning new icon, Jesus our Teacher, which was designed by the Coatbridge-based artist, Bernadette Reilly; acknowledges that the event is the first visit to the Parliament by the conference, and notes that it is taking place in the same week as Red Wednesday, which will see campaigns taking place globally in protest against people being persecuted for peacefully practicing their Christian faith.
