Parish News and Upcoming events

** NO BOOKING ARE NOW REQUIRED BUT WE WILL STILL BE TAKING DETAILS FOR TRACK AND TRACE AND ASK THAT YOU ARE MINDFUL OF SPACE AND PEOPLE AROUND YOU. **

Please be sure to look at the weekly timetable as these will change if there is a family funeral.

WELCOME: Albie Hendry who will be baptised this weekend at St Machan’s. Keep them in your prayers along with parents and godparents.

COVID-19: As we see an increase on numbers attending mass can we please remind you that we are still required to:

  • Sanitise our hands on entering and leaving the Church
  • Wear a face covering
  • Ensure we are wrapped up warm enough coming in to winter as we need to keep windows & doors open for ventilation
  • Continue with Test and Protect and self-isolate when symptomatic or have tested positive.
  • Reception of Holy Communion should remain on the hand (unless you have spoken with Fr John).

SEASON OF CREATION: As Christians we thank God for gift of creation, but, because we have taken that gift for granted, when we look at creation as it is now, we are conscious of the failings of humanity: we are conscious of the need for what the gospel calls “metanoia”, not just sorrow for the abuse of creation, not just a change of heart, but change of life and how we live our lives.                                                                     “Bishops of Scotland Pentecost Letter”
