Weekly Collections Diocesan Donate Facility
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 online. The Diocese has set up a Donate Facility to make this easier. Simply click this link and follow the instructions
Urgent Appeal Update
This is a difficult time for all of us but particularly for some parishioners who are struggling to feed their families. We have been blessed by the number of you who have shown great generosity in the recent collections.
Thank you for your continued support.
The next food collection will be on SAT 20th JUNE. 10.30-2.30. in the church car park.
We will be collecting donations of food, cleaning materials and toiletries .
Laundry products are also in great demand. The last collection allowed us to help over 120 households in need.
We particularly want to welcome all newcomers to the parish. Click on the links to explore the site and find out about times of services and information on the organisations in the parish and how to get involved and help develop our parish community.
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
