INCOME – Collections £335.00 – 23 August and £292.00 – 30 August – includes gift aid money votives etc. (Note:- the collection money is being counted one week later due to corona virus)

DONATION OF CLOTHING FOR NIGERIA – Father Francis would like to request any donations of clothing for all age groups, adult and children, these can be used or new but preferably in good condition. No Coats or jackets please.   He proposes to take these items to Nigeria when he travels later in the year.  Nigeria has been very had hit with the Covid 19 pandemic and Father Francis thinks there will be a great need for this type of clothing.  Any donations can be left, clearly marked at the church door and will be stored  in the choir loft or can be handed in to the Chapel House.

INFORMATION FROM ARCHDIOCESE – The First Minister’s announcement about tightening some restrictions does not affect gathering for worship in church. We can still gather in accordance with the Guidance that is currently in force, with a maximum of 50 (or 20 for funerals and weddings), subject to social distancing limits. 

The reduction of gatherings from eight-in-three-households to six-in-two does affect any gatherings we might have in presbyteries, halls, parishioner’s houses, restaurants/venues, etc. This includes things like parish councils, RCIA, etc. For most of the Archdiocese, however, the local restrictions are still in force which ban any gatherings at home.

Dance Classes – Organised dance classes for under 12s can take place in parish halls. Dance classes for over-12s can only take place if it is non-contact dancing (so some forms of dancing might be allowed, but Scottish country or ballroom dancing would be banned). These classes must follow the Sport Scotland gymnastics guidance, which can be found at this link:

This Guidance is very detailed and classes must be sure that they can fulfil it and Risk Assessments to that effect must be produced. They require a minimum of 9 square meters per participant, so it may be that many halls are too small to have viable classes. 

This only applies to Dance Classes – parish dances, discos, etc., are still forbidden.   

Cases in a Parish – What happens if someone has been at Mass recently and tests positive? Under the test and protect system if someone tests positive then they must remain in isolation for ten days from symptom onset, or longer if certain symptoms persist. Following a positive test an individual will be put in touch with the local contact tracing team in order to identify ‘close contacts’. The Bishops’ Conference advisers suspect that attendance in one of our churches, with all of the measures we have in place, will not render other parishioners ‘close contacts’ but that will be a matter for the contact tracing team. The priest/deacon/EMHC who gave Communion to the person who tests positive might count as a close contact. It is very important that anyone who tests positive and has been in church recently should share that information with the contact tracing team.  

If a priest has symptoms he must get tested and/or if he is asked to self-isolate, then he must do so, even though that may mean having to close the church (if the access is through the presbytery) and may mean having to rearrange funerals to neighbouring parishes, etc. Obviously these are very difficult steps to take, but they are necessary ones.  

Privacy Notice– This parish has a lawful basis to process your information.  Contacting people who might have been exposed to coronavirus is an important step in stopping the spread.  Your information will be destroyed 21 days after the attendance at Mass.  Your data will only be used for attendance at Mass and if requested by NHS Scotland for contact tracing purposes.  You have the right to have your data erased or corrected. The full Archdiocese of Glasgow privacy notice is available at:

Catholic Social Thought for the day. 13 September Thus, in the spirit of the Book of Leviticus (25:8-12), Christians will have to raise their voice on behalf of all the poor of the world, proposing the jubilee as an appropriate time to give thought, among other things, to reducing substantially, if not cancelling outright, the international debt which seriously threatens the future of many nations” Pope Saint John Paul II, Tertio Millennio Adveniente, para. 51
