Around 1000 members of the Orange Order are set to march past an East End church where a priest was attacked as part of a newly-announced parade.

According to an exclusive report in the Evening Times, the procession is planned for Saturday, June 8 by the County Grand Orange Lodge of Glasgow who plan to take around 950 Glasgow Orange Order members past St Alphonsus' Church on London Road.

Canon Tom White, the parish priest at St Alphonsus', as well as St Mary's in Calton, was spat on and attacked by a follower of the annual Boyne parade last July.

On that occasion, around 200 members were passing the church.

The parade planned for June 8, will see nearly eight times the amount of Orangemen present.

Starting in Corn Street at 11am, the proposed route will take them along Garscube Road, down St George's Road and along Sauchiehall Street before turning onto West George Street. 

The parade will then continue down George Street, onto High Street, before turning into the Gallowgate and onto London Road at Moir Street and passing St Alphonsus' during mass. 

A spokesman for Glasgow City Council said: “We are still in the early stages of handling this notification and will consult with our colleagues at Police Scotland in due course.”

The County Grand Orange Lodge of Glasgow declined to comment on the parade.

The parade is one of six marches by loyal order organisations that plan to pass either of the churches where Canon White is the priest.

Last week, members of the Apprentice Boys cancelled a march planned for Easter Sunday after being forced to re-route the parade by Glasgow City Council.

Police Scotland had warned of the potential for the significant disorder if the walk went ahead as initially planned.

This was the second time since the attack on Canon White that a march by a loyalist group in Glasgow has had to be re-routed away from St Alphonsus', with protests taking place during other parades past other churches where he is the priest.
