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

E-News Updates LAUNCHED
The Archdiocese of St Andrews & Edinburgh is delighted to launch a brand new news service – the e-news update. All you have to do is sign up at our website and we’ll send you a regular e-mail with the latest news, views and information about the Catholic Church in this part of Scotland.

“How entirely fitting that we launch this new e-news service today upon the Feast of St Francis de Sales, the patron saint of journalists and one of the greatest communicators that the Church has ever raised up,” said Archbishop Leo Cushley, 24 January.

“The e-news update is a great way for Catholics – and many others – to keep up to date with everything that the Archdiocese of St Andrews & Edinburgh is doing to proclaim the joy of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the one and a half million people who live within the bounds of our diocese.”

To sign up, just click on the link below and scroll down the page where you can subscribe to the e-news update https://archedinburgh.org/news-events.

Thank you. St Francis de Sales, pray for us!

The Catholic App continues to grow its coverage and now covers all Churches in Scotland.

It is a great way to find Mass in your area - and parishes are being reminded that they can control of the information on it.

They can quickly update their details on Mass and Confession times through the Catholic App web platform.

It means App users can automatically see the updates on the 'Near Me Now' function, which gives a comprehensive selection of Mass and Confession times wherever you are.

Maciej Zurawski of developers Musemantik said: "The Catholic App now covers 100% of the churches in Scotland and is the most reliable central source in the world about the daily activity of Catholic Mass and confessions. Also, the new Android version is super-fast!"

You can download the app for FREE

Apple App Store or Google Play.

A word of thanks to all those who came to the Queen’s afternoon tea last Sunday. The afternoon was a great success. Also, thanks to those who donated baking, raffle prizes, Alex Graham and Paterson and Hughes Funeral Directors for their support. Finally, to those who organised, served/clear up on the day. A total of £1301 was raised to assist in the major costs for the new church lights. Well done!

“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.

About 140 people braved some rain and eventually the sun shined as we dispersed to sprinkle holy water on our own family graves.

It was great to see a good number of our own and neighbouring parishioners and locals.
