Stations of the Cross – are at 7pm every Friday in Lent.
Station Mass – the Archbishop is coming to our Deanery for his annual Lenten visit to celebrate Mass in St Joachim’s, Carmyle, on Monday 20th March at 7pm. The minibus will take parishioners who want to go – please sign up at the back of the church. There is no Mass in the parish that day.
An Introduction to the New Testament – continues on Friday 24th March at 7.30pm, after Stations. This week we will look at the writings of St John.
J&P Group Lent Campaign – this year the J& P group would like to invite you to join them in their Lent campaign by donating items for vulnerable, homeless women. We will be donating to the Chara Centre which is in Possilpark. When we approached them and asked what items would be helpful/ useful, they suggested toiletries, socks and underwear, pyjamas or nighties, slipperettes, and hats, scarves and gloves as the weather is still pretty cold. Please don’t feel you have to provide something from each category. This week we will put out baskets for socks or underwear, next week nighties, pyjamas, and slipperettes.
