Parish Priest: Fr John Deighan

Welcome to the St Machan’s Parish Homepage!

Our Parish is formed of three local church communities: St Dominic’s Torrance, St Machan’s Lennoxtown and St Paul’s Milton of Campsie.

Parish News and Upcoming events

Change to this weeks timetable, there will be Mass on Wednesday 5/8/20 and NO Mass Thursday 06/08/20

Public Masses

For now, please note that all Masses will take place at St Machan’s. It’s going to be very difficult at first, because of our limited capacity (50 people max at any Mass) it may be necessary to turn people away at the door. Mass times will be as follows:

Weekdays 10:00am (UNLESS FUNERAL MASS)
Saturday 5:30pm BOOKING ONLY
Sunday 10:00am BOOKING ONLY
Sunday 12:00pm BOOKING ONLY
Sunday 5:30pm

-Sunday Masses except the 5:30pm on Sunday – are by BOOKING ONLY.

– You need to call or text our parish secretary, Lynn on 07834 817405, you should call/text between 10:30 and 3:30 on a Friday to book a place at one of the Masses.

– You need to give your name and a contact number. If you’re booking as a family, you need to give the names of all those who will attend.

– If there are no places left when you try to book, there is still the possibility of showing up to the 5:30pm Mass on Sunday evening. The earlier you arrive, the better your chance of a seat.

I know this is all very inconvenient and inherently silly. Sadly, my hands are tied. All things considered, and despite the obvious drawbacks, I think this is the best option for our parish. Take comfort from the thought that – hopefully – the situation won’t last too long.

God bless and see you soon,
Fr John
