 - Prayer Life  - 

The Bishops' Conference of Scotland has called on Catholics to 'pray unceasingly' amidst the global coronavirus pandemic.
 

In a statement released on Tuesday 24th March 2020, the bishops, including Archbishop Leo Cushley, confirmed the closure of churches for 'the common good'.

They said: "The outbreak of Covid 19 virus in Scotland demands from all of us a response which recognises the serious threat to all people, especially the elderly and those with underlying illnesses, and our duty of care to them.

"Having given due consideration to the words of the First Minister yesterday evening, we, the Bishops of Scotland, agree that our churches should be closed during this period of national emergency for the common good.

"There will be no celebrations of baptism or marriage but we will continue to offer prayers for those who have died and for their families who mourn their passing. The Church is not only a building but the people of God at prayer wherever they may find themselves.
 

"We encourage all Catholics and all people of faith to pray unceasingly in their homes for our nation at this time in particular for our political leaders, our health care professionals and all those suffering from the virus.

May this lived Lenten experience lead us to new life and healing at Easter."

There will be prayer and spiritual material available on the archdiocesan website 

 

The archbishop has encouraged us all to ask the intercession of Our Lady of Lourdes and pray the Rosary and/or Memorare for the intentions of the world at this very difficult time.

Would any of you like to do some online adoration?

You can go online to lots of places including Tyburn convent which is the same order as the Largs’s nuns ( Benedictine Adorers of the Sacred Heart of Jesus of Montmartre). They are an enclosed order whose charism is Perpetual Adoration. Check out the website at the end of this email

Just go on to the website and you will see that they have a menu which includes Adoration. Click on this. You will see the host in the Monstrance. Just click on the red arrow and you’re now in live Adoration any time day or night. It’s entirely up to you.  It would be good for everyone to pray to be spared the worst effects of the Coronavirus, for those who are ill or have died and their families, but also generally prayers for our priests and in reparation for our sins and those of the whole world and for the salvation of all souls. You can pray any prayers, read scripture or prayers, personal prayer and most importantly give your love and Adoration to Our Lord. Visit - tyburnconvent.org.uk

 - Latest News - 

As announced by the First Minister today, our church building will close from Thursday 7th January until further notice. In the Additional Information section below you can download a Family Prayer Service paper copies are available at the front door of the chapel house.

We will still be allowed to open for Requiem Masses, with restrictions of twenty people. Regrettably no baptisms can take place, unless the baby/child is seriously ill.

Please note there are resources available on the archdiocese website for Sunday’s Children Liturgy and very shortly there will be available a short Sunday Family Service that you can celebrate at home during the lockdown.

Like ourselves, I am sure you are disappointed and dismayed with these restrictions, but we are asked to cooperate with these rules in the name of the common good and our shared responsibility for our fellow citizens.   

Please continue to keep close to the Lord in your prayer life. We will continue to keep you in our prayers and Masses.

 

Best wishes,

Fr William and Fr Daniel

Funeral Masses

As we are limited to a total of 20 mourners for a Requiem Funeral Mass, in order to respect this limit we would like to ask parishioners who regularly attend the Weekday Masses to forgo their attendance whenever a Funeral Mass is scheduled - on these days there will be No Public Mass.

Again, many thanks to our pass keepers and those who are wiping down after every Mass. Your time and efforts are greatly appreciated. If you are intending to go to the 4.30pm Holy Mass on Sunday, would you consider assisting with directing people to their seats and also for wipe down of the pews after this Mass.

You will experience some changes.

  • For Weekday Masses you must complete the sign in sheet at the back of the church.

  • Limited to 50 people only per Mass.

  • in order to facilitate the track and trace system currently in place in Scotland, everyone who attends at Holy Mass will be required to provide their name and contact details upon entry.

  • Please enter by the door via the large carpark.

  • Please exit via doors next to the chapel house.

  • You may have to queue, respecting social distancing: there are lines now traced for this purpose.

  • You will be asked to wear a face covering (we can provide these which you can take home and then reuse when entering the chapel again).

  • Sanitise your hands on arrival at one of the six sanitising stations. 

  • You will now be directed to a particular seat in the chapel, which means sadly, that you may no longer sit where you choose or which side you prefer. 

  • Can we also ask that you follow the one way system in the chapel (entering down the middle aisle and exiting side aisles)?

  • Our Mass times will be Saturday Vigil 6pm, Sunday 9.30am, 10.45am, 12noon & 4.30pm. 

  • Please check Facebook or Website for any updates to these times.

“Awareness and Safety in our Catholic Communities”

Volunteering to work in the Parish Community is a wonderful expression of Christian commitment, and is essential to the running of our many and varied groups. Some of this work involves working closely with children and young people, or with adults at risk, and imposes extra responsibilities on us all.
