During this period of lockdown since the church has been closed there has not been the usual opportunity to make financial contributions to support the upkeep of the parish. Some parishioners have posted contributions through the church house door. This is a reminder that an easy way to support the parish financially is to contribute through direct debit. Should you wish to do this you can email for the details or message the parish Facebook page.
This is a difficult time for all of us but particularly for some parishioners who are struggling to feed their families. Here is a chance to show love for them by donating food and household items. There will be another collection of donations in the church car park this Saturday, 23rd May, between 10.15am and 3pm. Thank you to all who donated to the last collection. Many families were very grateful. Please use the practice of social distancing. You can place donations directly into the car boot. No frozen items but food and household items will be most welcome. The food will be distributed as soon as possible to families' doorsteps. Some families have already been approached but if you haven't and you need help please get in touch by phone or email.

As you may have heard due to the Covid-19 outbreak public Masses in Scotland will be suspended from after Mass tomorrow Thursday 19th. For us that mean I will say a private Mass at 0930 each day in the church. If you have any intentions that you would like me to include please let me know by phone or email and I will include them. Also although generally people will not be able to physically attend I would encourage you to try and attend spiritually at that time and perhaps ask your guardian angel to attend for you.
I will try and keep people aware of what's happening when I can. Let us pray for one another. Fr Ivan
