Mass attendance has been consistent but it is possible that we may have more parishioners returning in the coming weeks therefore it is important to ensure that the church is filled from the front using all available spaces.  We have not had to turn anyone away as yet.  It was expected that the Scottish Government would have reduced social distancing to one metre early in August but that has not happened yet and we would like to accommodate everyone who arrives for Sunday mass.  PLEASE CONTINUE TO FOLLOW STEWARD’S DIRECTIONS.

You can come to mass during the week if you cannot make it on a Sunday and you would be very welcome.

The parish minibus is still not able to be used due to social distancing guidelines but hopefully this will be available in the not too distant future.

The obligation to attend Sunday mass is still suspended and some people may feel unsafe to come to church but we are happy to see parishioners whenever they feel able to return.

We had a request from a former parishioner for a photograph of Father Martin Doherty as she named her son after him.  If anyone has a suitable photograph could you let us know or share it on our facebook page.

We had our first funeral since churches re-opened last week (Patsy Harking) but unfortunately the number of mourners were limited to twenty which had to exclude some friends and family of the deceased and our own parishioners.  We are sorry for those who turned up for the service but were not able to be admitted.

Schools return on Tuesday 11th August

9 August – Catholic Social thought quotations

If the consciousness of universal brotherhood truly penetrates into the hearts of men, will they still need to arm themselves to the point of becoming blind and fanatic killers of their brethren who in themselves are innocent, and of perpetrating, as a contribution to Peace, butchery of untold magnitude, as at Hiroshima on 6 August 1945?

Blessed Pope Paul VI, Message for World Day of Peace, 1967 

The remembrances of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on 6th and 9th August 1945 respectively take place each year. These remain the first, and thus far only uses of nuclear weapons in war.
