A prayer for Creation
Father, we praise you with all your creatures.
They came forth from your all-powerful hand;
they are yours, filled with your presence and your tender love.
Praise be to you!
Pope Francis, Laudato Sì
Father Gargaro – will be on holiday from Tuesday 19th July until the following Tuesday, 26th July. During his absence Mass will be celebrated by the Comboni Fathers from Carmyle. You can always contact him by email on firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no bulletin next weekend.
Summer Trips – once again we are planning a number of parish trips in our minibus over the summer: Monday 18 July (Fair Monday) trip to Ayr; Saturday 30 July trip to Largs; Saturday 6 August afternoon visit to Summerlea Park in Coatbridge; and Friday 12 August afternoon trip to Garden Centre and New Lanark. The trips will take a maximum of 17 people including the driver and will be £5 per head. Anyone interested should add their name to the lists at the back of the church – the Ayr and Largs trips are now full.
Weekday Mass – On Monday Mass will be at 9.30am, since it is Fair Monday and there is the bus run to Ayr. On Saturday there is no 9.30am Mass, just the Vigil Mass at 6pm. Next Monday (25th July) Mass will also be at 9.30am.
Bonus Ball Winners – congratulations to our winners: Saturday 9 July number 12 Susan Campbell; Wednesday 13 July number 51 Flo Milligan.
Parish Fun Day – is due to take place on Sunday 28th August. The planning for the fun day has started and we would like to ask for volunteers to help with setting up and clearing up on the day: this takes a lot of time and effort and is often left to just a handful of people, so we are looking for persons to commit to helping as soon as possible to properly plan the event. On top of this we are looking for assistance on the Saturday prior to the day as a lot of work is done in advance to ensure smooth running. If you are able to help, please speak to Father Gargaro or Margaret McElroy.
Donations for tombola and raffle prizes would be most appreciated and can be left in the box in the church porch. Anyone who can take a stall or has ideas for stalls would be most welcome.
We have already had a few volunteers but we need many more!
Year of Mercy Rosary – takes place in Burnmouth Court on Thursday 28th July.
Gift Aid – we have recently received almost £2000 for HMRC thanks to those who donate using the Gift Aid Envelopes. In this last period 25 people used the envelopes – if you pay tax and don’t use Gift Aid then the parish is missing out unnecessarily.
Safeguarding Training – if you work in the parish with young people or vulnerable adults, i.e. if you have a PVG, and you have not attended formal safeguarding training then, if at all possible, you should attend the latest training session which takes place on Monday 29th August from 7pm til 9pm at the Eyre Hall, Clyde Street, Glasgow. If you are going to attend then please email email@example.com or phone Claudia Melis on 0141-226-5898.
Parish Pastoral Council – meets on Wednesday 27th July at 7pm in the hall. If you have any issues to raise please speak to Father Gargaro or one of the members.
AGAP at the Edinburgh Fringe – the “Margaret Sinclair Story” will be performed from Saturday 6th August until Friday 12th August; “Among Women” will be performed on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th August. These take place at St Patrick’s Church. Tickets cost £6 from 0131-226-0000 or www.edfringe.com. On Tuesday 9th August there is a coach to the Margaret Sinclair Story (3pm showing), total cost £12 – phone 07971-234313 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
