What is a Parish? What are we called to be?

The parish is the presence of the Church in a given territory, an environment for hearing God’s word,

for growth in the Christian life,

for dialogue, proclamation, charitable outreach, worship and celebration.

[Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium, §28]


Mass on Monday – will be at 9.30am rather than 7pm. This is both because it’s Fair Monday and because Fr Gargaro has a family funeral in the afternoon.


Parish Pastoral Council – next meets on Wednesday at 7pm in the hall. If you have any matters to raise then please speak to Father Gargaro or one of the members.


Volunteers – we recently had to count all the volunteers to complete a form for the Archdiocese. In turns out we have over 60 volunteers, many of whom do more than one thing, which is great for a parish with only about 150 at Mass each weekend. But, at the same time, all of us who are fit enough should really be volunteering for at least one thing around the parish or in the wider Catholic world.


Ogilvie Statue Campaign Launch – takes place at St Andrew’s Cathedral, Glasgow, next Sunday, 23rd July, at 3pm. There will be a public rosary and a scene from Stephen Callaghan’s play on St John Ogilvie. This is the public launch of the campaign to build a statue of the saint at Glasgow Cross. Please come along and support this recognition for our Co-Patron – if you want to go by minibus then please put your name on the list at the back of the church. Spaces still available!


Mary’s Meals – Mary’s Meals are coming to sell raffle tickets and collect old clothing on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th August, at the 6pm and 11am Masses. This will help feed over 1 Million children in 14 countries!


Parish Fun Day – this year’s Fun Day is planned for Sunday 27th August. It’s time now to start donating tombola and raffle prizes – there will be a box in the church porch for these. We also need lots of volunteers: please let Margaret McElroy or Father Gargaro know if you are free to help out on the day or to help preparing on the days beforehand.


Sunday Café – there is a new rota for those who help on the notice-board at the back of the church and there are copies available for those involved. Would you like to help? You don’t need any special skills to make tea and toast and tidy up afterwards!

Carpets – after listening to people’s opinions and discussions with the Archdiocesan estates department, the carpet will be replaced with a similar green coloured carpet, with vinyl-type floor covering under the votive candle stands. This should take place at the end of this month. So far we have already raised over £4000! Thank you all for your generosity.


Bonus Ball – congratulations to our winners: Saturday 8 July number 25 Patricia Liddell; Wednesday 12 July number 18 Alicia McBennett.


Minibus Helpers – as always we really need more helpers for the minibus, both drivers and assistants. Right now we would like to invite anyone who already has a parish PVG who might like to help as an assistant. You don’t need to do anything other than be first on the bus and last off. It might take a wee bit more time on a Sunday morning but it will be a service to your fellow parishioners.


Scots College Magazines – for sale at the back of the church. They cost £2 and the money raised by the College from the sales go to Mary’s Meals.


Saint Aloysius Lunchtime Music Programme – takes place in St Aloysius Church, Garnethill, on Friday 28th July from 1.30pm to 2.30pm. Free entry – collection in support of the church renovation fund.  


Feast of Saint Anne – St Columba’s Parish invite you all to a day in celebration of Saint Anne, mother of Our Lady. A special invitation is extended to all mothers and grandmothers – there will be a procession, talks from Roseanne Reddy and Sister Mary Ross SND, Benediction, Veneration of the Relics, and refreshments in the hall. Saturday 22nd July, starting at 3pm.


SCIAF Real Gifts – the latest catalogue of “real gifts” is available at the back of the church: from school books to chickens; from birth certificates to mobile medical centres – your gifts can help people in so many ways. We often get (and receive!) gifts we don’t need or really want – why not send SCIAF real gifts instead and encourage others to do the same for you? For more info see www.sciaf.org.uk/realgifts.
