The story of creation presents us with a panoramic view of the world. Scripture reveals that, “in the beginning”, God intended humanity to cooperate in the preservation and protection of the natural environment. At first, as we read in Genesis, “no plant of the field was yet in the earth and no herb of the field had yet sprung up – for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was no one to till the ground” (2:5). The earth was entrusted to us as a sublime gift and legacy, for which all of us share responsibility until, “in the end”, all things in heaven and on earth will be restored in Christ (cf. Eph. 1:10). Our human dignity and welfare are deeply connected to our care for the whole of creation.

Father Francis Okereke – your new parish priest will arrive this Friday, 22nd September, in time to celebrate the Masses next weekend. Please make him very welcome. Although he will live here he is also Administrator of St Maria Goretti’s and so there will need to be understanding in both parishes about how he shares his time and about how he cannot be in two places at once (30 years ago there were nine priests covering the area Fr Francis will have to cover alone!). From Friday 22nd the Masses will be as follows:

  • Saturday Night Vigil 6pm at St Maria Goretti’s
  • Sunday 10am at St Jude’s & St John Ogilvie’s
  • Sunday 12 Noon at St Maria Goretti’s
  • Monday 7pm at St Jude’s & St John Ogilvie’s
  • Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 9.30am at St Maria Goretti’s
  • Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday at 9.30am at St Jude’s & St John Ogilvie’s.

These are the new arrangements but they are not set in stone: once Father settles in and gets to know people he will decide on how best to proceed.


Our email and telephone numbers are not affected by the change of priest.


Special Collection – Thank you for your generosity last weekend in donating £223.50 for SPRED. To learn more about SPRED you can attend an information evening at the SPRED Centre, 20 Robroyston Road, G33 1EQ (next to St Philomena’s) on Tuesday 3rd October at 7pm or Wednesday 4th October at 2pm.    


Golden Jubilee – Sister Patricia invites you all to join her in celebrating her Golden Jubilee as a Sister of Notre Dame with a Mass of Thanksgiving on Saturday 14th October at 2pm, followed by tea in the hall.


SPUC – have their annual conference on Saturday 7th October at 200 St Vincent Street, 9.30am-4pm. Cost £25 includes tea/coffee, cake, and lunch! For more information see http://spucscotland.org/spuc-scotland-conference-2017/


Bonus Ball – congratulations to our winners: Saturday 6 September number 6 Helen Marks; Wednesday 13 September number 27 Grace Edgar.


Justice & Peace – the J&P Group would like to draw your attention to the Season of Creation which extends from September 1st till October 4th, the feast of St Francis. During this season we are asked to commit to Caring for the Earth in prayer and in action. An excerpt from Pope Francis and Patriarch Bartholomew’s joint statement on the World Day of Prayer for Creation can be found on the back page of the newsletter. As part of this you are invited to celebrate the beauty and fruitfulness of the earth by bringing to our Sunday Mass on 1st October some of our earth’s gifts (fruit & veg) which are readily available to us now throughout the year. These will be offered in thanksgiving at the offertory and delivered to the Wayside Club after Mass to feed the less fortunate.


World Porridge Day – takes place on Sunday October 8th. Porridge will be served after Mass and all proceeds from the tearoom that day will go to Mary’s Meals. If you cannot manage down to sample our porridge maybe you could leave a small donation for Mary’s Meals. They remind us that it costs just £13.90 to feed a child for a whole school year!  In fact 7p buys a daily meal.


St John Ogilvie Statue – the campaign for the new statue at Glasgow Cross is now entering its fundraising phase. There will be a sponsored walk undertaken by the members of the Committee on Saturday 30th September from St Aloysius to St Jude’s & St John Ogilvie’s, where there will be a Holy Hour at 4pm. Liam O’Neill and Margaret McElroy will be part of the walk and are looking for sponsorship – there are forms at the back of the church! You can also donate online via chuffed.org (just search for the St John Ogilvie Campaign).


Altar Servers – if anyone who has made their First Holy Communions would like to be an altar server then please speak to Father Gargaro.
