Catholic Education Sunday – today is Catholic Education Sunday. We welcome representatives of Saint Andrew’s Secondary and there is a special collection in support of Catholic education. We are asked to reflect on how we are developing as a community of faith and learning in our homes, schools, and parishes.


Tuesday Mass – is at 7pm, not 9.30am.


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, continues on Thursday 23rd February in the church hall, 6.30pm-7.45pm.


Lentfest – brochure available at the back of the Church.


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. Thankfully the new Licence has arrived and the minibus should now run again as normal – but only if we can get more volunteers!  


World Day of Prayer – takes place in Saint Barnabas on Friday 3rd March at 2pm. The ecumenical service this year is written by women from the Philippines. All are welcome to attend.

Award in Catholic Theological Education – applications are now open for this Award issued by the University of Glasgow and the Archdiocese of Glasgow. The deadline is Friday 31st March. For more information please phone the Archdiocese RE Department on 0141-226-5898 or email Christine.Burke@rcag.org.uk.


Calming the Storm – this day of recollection for Lent takes place in Our Holy Redeemer’s House, Clydebank, on Saturday 11th March, from 10am to 3pm. The cost is £25 per person, including lunch. For more information contact Oonagh on 07920065584 or oonaghcoultas@gmail.com.


Stained Glass – hopefully the work to repair the stained glass window on the left hand side of the sanctuary, above the sacristy, will begin this week. This is the last stage of the vandalism repairs from last summer.


Ash Wednesday – next Wednesday, 1st March, is Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent. It is a Day of Fast and Abstinence (i.e. one meal and no meat). Have you started thinking yet about what you might give up for Lent or what extra devotions you might take on?


SCIAF – a representative from SCIAF will join us on the weekend of 4th/5th March to talk about their work and to encourage you to be generous in supporting the Wee Box campaign.


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.
