    Knights of St Columba:  As we enter this period of Lent, we experience a great period of reflection. Sometimes we may find ourselves asking ‘what more can I do?’ The Knights of St Columba offer an opportunity whereby men can be more active in their faith and in their service to the Church. We are actively looking for new members to help us in our work. Please contact us on 0141 883 5700 or visit our website ksc.org.uk for more information.

    1st March  – Catholic Social Thought Quotation

    God loves all men and women on earth and gives them the hope of a new era, an era of peace. His love, fully revealed in the Incarnate Son, is the foundation of universal peace. When welcomed in the depths of the human heart, this love reconciles people with God and with themselves, renews human relationships and stirs that desire for brotherhood capable of banishing the temptation of violence and war.  Pope Saint John Paul II, Message for World Day of Peace, 1 January 200
