A Catholic adoption agency in Scotland has won an appeal and been granted permission to keep its charitable status.
The Scottish Charity Appeal Panel ruled unanimously in favor of St Margaret’s Children and Family Care Society.
Archbishop Philip Tartaglia of Glasgow, president of St Margaret’s, said: “We are grateful for this wise decision. It means that families who are ready to adopt can look forward to the future with a little more serenity, and children in great need can be placed into loving homes. St Margaret’s is a small agency which does great work for the wider community and helps transform the lives of some of the most vulnerable children in society. It would have been have been a great pity if it had been forced to close.”
