A prayer for our Earth

A prayer for our Earth

O God of the poor,

help us to rescue the abandoned

and forgotten of this earth,

so precious in your eyes.

Bring healing to our lives,

that we may protect the world and not prey on it,

that we may sow beauty,

not pollution and destruction.

Touch the hearts

of those who look only for gain

at the expense of the poor and the earth.

Pope Francis, Laudato Sì


Lourdes Pilgrimage – the pilgrims return on Monday. They have prayed for all your intentions. Please pray for them that they have a safe journey home.


Mass on Tuesday – will be at 2pm in the church. This is the end of term Mass for Our Lady of Peace Primary and it marks the retirement of Mrs McGinness after 41 years of teaching, the vast majority of that time spent in St John Ogilvie and Our Lady of Peace Primaries. Everyone is welcome to come along and join the school community for Mass in the church. There is no 9.30am Mass that day.


Parish Pastoral Council – meets on Wednesday at 7pm in the hall. If you wish to raise any issues please contact Father Gargaro or one of the PPC members.


Comboni Missionaries – have a day of celebrations (including Mass and refreshments) on Saturday 25th June at St Joachim’s, Carmyle. Father Gargaro has a number of invitations, if you would like to attend please talk to him after Mass.


SCIAF – have written to thank us again for our generous donations in Lent and to let us know that they have obtained an extra £856 from the UK Government on the basis of our donations.


Cluster Event – to help the parishioners of our cluster to get to know each other better we are having a mini-pilgrimage to the Holy Door at the Cathedral followed by a social event in the Archdiocesan Offices. This will take place next Sunday, 26th June, leaving the parish at 1pm. The bus is free, but we need to know numbers. Please sign up at the back of the church. In the future we will be working much more closely with our neighbouring parishes, this will be much easier if we already know each other socially.


AGAP “Among Women” – takes place in the Eyre Hall (next to the Cathedral) on Thursday 14th July and in St Helen’s, Langside, on Friday 15th July, both at 7.30pm. Tickets are £5 (£2 for under 16s), call 0141-552-5527 or email info@agap.org.uk

Laudato Sì – Next weekend marks the first anniversary of the publication of Pope Francis encyclical Laudato Sì. The Catholic world has been invited to mark it by celebrating Laudato Sì Week from 12th til 19th June. To mark it here in Saint Jude’s and Saint John Ogilvie’s Parish we invite you join with Pope Francis in his prayer for and in union with Creation. The prayers will be printed on the back page of the bulletin throughout the month of June. The Sunday Liturgy will also reflect our prayer for God’s Wonderful Creation


Mariapolis – the Focolare Movement invite you to share in their Mariapolis retreat at Gartmore House, near Aberfoyle, 8th – 10th July. For more information please phone 0141-637-3316 or email focolareglasgow@talktalk.net.


Pauline Books and Media – Glasgow’s Catholic bookshop is moving from Royal Exchange Square to Saint Enoch’s Square in mid-July. The new shop will be opposite the Saint Enoch Shopping Centre, next to Maplin. Please continue to support the apostolate of  Catholic media in their new location, which is very convenient for the Cathedral.


Year of Mercy Rosary – will take place in the McElroy’s, 241 Hallhill Road, on Thursday 23rd June. We are still looking for people to host the Year of Mercy rosary throughout the rest of the year. All you need is a living room and a few chairs – everyone will bring their own rosaries! Offering tea and coffee is nice but optional.


Irish Heritage Day – St Maria Goretti’s parish invite you to a celebration of Irish Heritage on Wednesday 22nd June from 12 til 3.30pm, including lunch and light refreshments.


Sunday Café – a new rota for the café is available on the notice board at the back of the church. Remember that everyone is very welcome to come down to the hall after 11am Mass every Sunday for tea.
