Scotland's new First Minister has appointed two Christians to her first cabinet.
Nicola Sturgeon has made changes to the government after taking over from Alex Salmond who resigned last week.
Roseanna Cunningham and Michael Matheson, both Catholics, have both been promoted into the Scottish cabinet.
Mrs Cunningham has been given the work, skills and training brief whilst Mr Matheson takes over from Kenny MacAskill as Justice Secretary.
Revealing her Cabinet Ms Sturgeon said: "This new Cabinet is a team of all the talents, which will take forward this Government's priorities for Scotland.
"The aims of my Government are clear: to create a nation that is both socially democratic and socially just, a nation that is confident in itself and governed effectively and a nation which will address poverty, support business, promote growth and tackle inequality.
"The new Cabinet team I have announced today will pursue these priorities with verve, vigour and determination."
