Everyone is welcome, but each parish is asked to send up to 5 delegates, to ensure representation from across the deanery. If you would like to go, please let me know, ideally by email (above).

CHRISTMAS CARDS: Boxes of Christmas cards are now available at the back £3.99 each.

ADVENT RECONCILIATION SERVICE: I would like to have a Holy Hour with the opportunity for Confession. This will take place 7-8pm at St Machan’s on Thursday 16th December.

FOOD BANK: The food bank at Lennoxtown could do with donations, especially the following items; tinned fruit & vegetables, fruit juice, washing up liquid, washing powder, deodorant (male & female), Christmas cards, small gifts, Christmas crackers. Hand them in after Mass, or at the chapel house.

SAFEGUARDING CO-ORDINATOR: At St Machan’s, our safeguarding representative stepped down earlier this year and a new one hasn’t yet been appointed. If you think this is a role you could do, please have a word with Fr John.
