But fear not, you don’t need your hiking boots…we aren’t the biggest fan of climbing mountains either! Jam-packed with exciting talks, workshops, activities, and Holy Mass with the Archbishop – you’d be crazy to miss it! It’ll take place in Bl. John Duns Scotus RC Church, G5 0YT, 2-5pm on Sunday 12th February, 12th March, 14th May & 11th June. We look forward to meeting y’all.

White Mass – for all those involved in health care, takes place in St Mary’s Cathedral, Edinburgh, at 12 Noon on Sunday 12th February.
Vigil Mass Readers – we are grateful to those who currently read at the Vigil Mass but their numbers are decreasing and it is sometimes a strain for them. If you attend the Vigil Mass would you be interested in becoming a reader? If so, please speak to Father Gargaro.
First Confession – the Circle of Friends, which every child must attend in preparation for the Sacrament, starts on Thursday 16th February in the church hall, 6.30pm-7.45pm.
Lentfest – brochure available at the back of the Church.
Vocations Newsletter – the latest Vocations Newsletter is available at the back of the Church. Please take a copy and read up about our Scottish seminarians.
Minibus – many parishioners depend on the minibus to get to Mass on Sunday as well as to participate in other activities throughout the year. The minibus can only be used to bring people to Mass if we have enough drivers and helpers. We need two or three more of each if we are going to be able to continue this valuable service. A driver needs the appropriate licence to drive a minibus and must be under 70. The driver and the helper will need to get PVGs (criminal record checks). The driver drives the minibus safely and appropriately; the helper assists people to get on and off and makes sure they are safely seated in transit. The driver and the helper need to be available from about 10am until about 1.30pm on about one Sunday a month (the frequency depends on how many volunteers we get), subject to flexibility for holidays, etc. Please help – some of your fellow parishioners are depending on this. Unfortunately the minibus is currently out of use due to the expiry of the Traffic Commissioners’ Licence for carrying passengers. A new Licence has been applied for and hopefully will be issued soon. Father Gargaro apologies for the inconvenience this has caused.
Lourdes 2017 – Some places have become available for the Lourdes Pilgrimage which leaves on 4th June 2017. Price based on 2 sharing a room is £330 per person. Speak to Father Gargaro for details. There are also spaces for sick pilgrims on the Archdiocesan Pilgrimage, running from 14th to 21st July, cost £699 – phone Mrs Agnes Findlay on 01360-312676.
Father Joseph Mills – has retired from St Mary’s, Duntocher, and is coming to live at St Paul’s, Shettleston. We welcome him to the deanery. He will be replaced in Duntocher by Father Paul Milarvie from Kirkintilloch, who will in turn be replaced by Father Len Purcell, who has returned from service as a military chaplain.
