“”God, who creates and conserves all things by his Word, provides men with constant evidence of himself in created realities and furthermore, wishing to open up the way to heavenly salvation – he manifested himself to our first parents from the very beginning.” He invited them to intimate communion with himself and clothed them with resplendent grace and justice. This revelation was not broken off by our first parents’ sin. “After the fall, (God) buoyed them up with the hope of salvation, by promising redemption; and he has never ceased to show his solicitude for the human race. For he wishes to give eternal life to all those who seek salvation by patience in well-doing.”” Catechism of the Catholic Church §§54-55
Mission Sunday – today is Mission Sunday and there will be a second collection in support of the missions. Please pray for our missionaries throughout the world – people who leave everything behind to go to distant countries to spread the Gospel. It’s worth remembering too those African priests who come here to work – leaving their families and friends to give back to Scotland the Gospel that we shared with them in days gone by.

Please sign up at the back of the church to keep watch in Adoration. On Monday there are Novena Prayers at 9.30am and Mass & Novena at 7pm. On Tuesday there is Mass & Novena Prayers at 9.30am and Novena Prayers at 6pm (NOT 7pm!). On Wednesday there are Novena Prayers at 9.30am and Mass & Novena Prayers at 7pm (Lourdes Reunion Mass). On Thursday there is Mass & Novena Prayers at 9.30am and Novena Prayers at 7pm. On Friday, the Feast of St Jude, there are Novena Prayers at 9.30am and the Feast Day Mass and Novena Prayers at 7pm. The Mass will be celebrated by Msgr Paul Conroy, Vicar-General of the Archdiocese. All Novena Prayers include Veneration of the Relics. St Jude candles (which can be placed on the lady altar) and novena intercessions are at the back of the church.
Back Door of House – in the light of some comments about the height of the step into the new door, a new step has been built and a handrail fitted. Hopefully this will make access easier.
Parish Pastoral Council – we are always looking for new members. Do you think you have something to offer the parish through membership? Is there a fellow parishioner you would encourage to join? Speak to Father Gargaro or one of the PPC members.
60th Anniversary Concert – to mark the 60th Anniversary of St Jude’s Church we are having a small concert of folk music in the hall, followed by a buffet, on Friday 4th November.
