       Bishop Logan was born in Bathgate, attended St. Mary’s Academy, Bathgate, and was ordained a priest in Edinburgh in March 1964.
      He was ordained Bishop of Dunkeld by Cardinal Gordon Gray in 1981 and stepped down after more than 30 years in the post in 2012. Bishop Hugh Gilbert, president of the Bishops’ Conference of Scotland, said: “The bishops of Scotland offer our deep condolences and the promise of our prayers to Bishop Stephen Robson and all the clergy and people of the Diocese of Dunkeld as they remember Bishop Vincent. “Coming only a day after the death in Glasgow of Archbishop Philip Tartaglia marks this week as one of loss and mourning for the Catholic church in Scotland. “Bishop Vincent Logan was dedicated and energetic. His episcopal ordination in 1981 at the age of 39 made him one of the youngest bishops in the world and gave him an energy and zeal in all he did. His commitment to Catholic Education was well known and his robust defence of it will be long remembered.”
       Archbishop Tartaglia, who was 70, had tested positive for Covid-19 shortly after Christmas and was self-isolating at home. The church said the cause of death was not yet clear. He had served as archbishop since 2012.
