“Those who with God’s help have welcomed Christ’s call and freely responded to it are urged on by love of Christ to proclaim the Good News everywhere in the world. This treasure, received from the apostles, has been faithfully guarded by their successors. All Christ’s faithful are called to hand it on from generation to generation, by professing the faith, by living it in fraternal sharing, and by celebrating it in liturgy and prayer.” Catechism of the Catholic Church §3
Floor Repairs – starting on Monday the church will be closed for the repairs to the sanctuary floor. This work should improve the look of the sanctuary area and help keep our church in a great condition. There will be no Mass from Monday until Saturday morning. After Sunday, the next Mass in the church will be the Vigil on Saturday night. Apologies for any inconvenience – parishioners with cars are asked to be generous in helping those without cars get to weekday Mass in neighbouring parishes.
The new floor sealant is designed to be hardwearing but we also need to try and keep it in good condition:
To help with this we are removing the large pot plants from the sanctuary since moving them and watering them can damage the floor. The other furnishings will get floor protection pads.
People who walk on the sanctuary (readers, servers, extraordinary ministers) are asked to use appropriate footwear.
People going to the sacristy are asked to use the door at the top of the hall stairs rather than going up via the sanctuary.
The floor will simply need to be vacuumed or swept – it should never be wet mopped or polished.
Altar Servers – we are always looking for new servers so if you are in p5 or above and would like to serve Mass just speak to Father Gargaro.
Bonus Ball Winners – congratulations to our winners: Saturday 13 August number 38 Hugh Miller; Wednesday 17 August number 55 Jean Downie.
Special Collection – today for the Assisted Parishes Fund.
Trip to Lake Windermere – unfortunately the parish trip has had to be cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. Taking advantage of the refund from this trip, and since the church is out of use this week, Father Gargaro will be taking a few days away this week with his mother. If you need to contact him whilst he is away just email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parish Fun Day – please find enclosed with the bulletin a flyer advertising the fun day and a list of those who have already volunteered and what they will do on the day. There is always room for more volunteers – just come along and help. If you still have donations for tombola etc. these can still be handed in at the back of the church.
Year of Mercy Rosary – takes place in the church hall on Monday evening at 7pm.
Mass for Teachers – takes place in the Cathedral on Thursday 1st September at 7pm. All Catholic teachers are invited.
SCIAF Africa Appeal – SCIAF recently asked us to support their appeal for African famine relief. The parish gave them a donation of £200.
Catholic Education Commission Open Forum – parents, teachers, and students are all invited to learn about developments affecting Catholic education in Scotland. The Forum takes place on 27th August at the Eyre Hall, Archdiocesan Offices, Clyde Street, beginning with Mass in the cathedral at 10am. Book your places at www.sces.org.uk or phone 0141-556-4727.
Mass for the Feast of the Queenship of Mary – takes place at St Maria Goretti’s on Monday 22nd August at 7.30pm, followed by tea in the hall. Everyone welcome. If you would like to know more about the Family of Mary Immaculate Queen see www.facebook.com/MIQScotland or Twitter @MIQScotland.
National Pilgrimage to Carfin – takes place on Sunday 4th September with Mass at 3pm in honour of Saint Margaret, Patroness of Scotland, an exemplary witness to the corporal and spiritual works of mercy in this Year of Mercy. There will be confessions from 12 noon and the chance to pass through the Holy Door. Archbishop Tartaglia will be the main celebrant and Archbishop Cushley will preach. The minibus will be available for any persons wishing to join the pilgrimage and will leave at approximately 1.30pm. If you wish to go please add your name to sheet at the back of the church (maximum of 17 persons).
Vandalism Repairs – we are still waiting for the stained glass repairers to come and arrange the repairs to the window above the sanctuary. The statue of the Sacred Heart will be taken away at the end of the month to be repaired, which will take about eight weeks.
