Alterations to Mass Times this week – Mass on Monday will be at 9.30am, not 7pm. There will be no Mass on Friday since Fr Gargaro has to go and celebrate a funeral at St Maria Goretti’s (Fr Sweeney is away on holiday). Next Sunday we have an extra Mass for the Lourdes Pilgrims at 6.45am, all are welcome.


Forty Hours – there is Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament on Sunday from after 11am Mass until 5pm, when we will celebrate Benediction, and on Monday and Tuesday from after 9.30am Mass until 7pm, when there will be a Holy Hour each night. On Monday we welcome Father McGinley from St Thomas’s for the Holy Hour and on Tuesday we welcome Canon Tartaglia from St Margaret’s Clydebank. Please take advantage of this opportunity to spend time praying before the Real Presence of Our Lord for our own needs and for those of the whole world. We live a world that is desperately in need of prayer. There are sheets at the back of the church to sign up for a period of time on any of the three days.

General Election – please visit the website www.wheredotheystand.org.uk to question your candidates on crucial life issues such as abortion and assisted suicide. Just fill in a few basic details and the system does the rest! Note that while abortion and assisted suicide are both matters devolved to the Scottish Parliament their importance is so significant that we ought to challenge UK Parliamentary candidates on them and ascertain their views.
