Polish incomers swell Good Friday congregations in city

Members of Edinburgh’s Polish community helped swell numbers at services held across the city yesterday to mark Good Friday.

Hundreds gathered for mass at St Mary’s Cathedral for services held in both English and Polish.

In recent years, the cathedral has employed a number of Polish priests in an attempt to reach out to new parishioners arriving from eastern Europe.

Yesterday, Father Tadeusz Puton conducted mass for several hundred Poles shortly after the day’s main English ceremony.

It was standing room only as the faithful packed in to mark the day of Christ’s crucifixion.
