Rosary on the Coast
A huge thank you to everyone who came along last Sunday and prayed the Rosary on the coast at Levengrove Park. The support for this was overwhelming. 60 people from various parishes locally and as far afield as Faifley joined us in singing hymns, listening to Scripture readings and praying the Rosary for faith, life and peace in the British Isles and around the world. Nationally 45,000 people are estimated to have participated in the largest public Catholic event in Britain in recent years. Thank you to those who lead a decade and helped set up our sacred space and tidy up at the end. Pope Francis bestowed his apostolic blessing on all those who participated in this event and I'm sure the graces and blessings will have a long term impact on our country.
 
Hall Help!  
The hall provides a vital source of income which helps pay for maintenance work in the parish. It is important that we keep the hall open and I am therefore appealing for more people to come forward and help. Please speak to Fr Anthony or Margaret McCallion. “Many Hands make Light Work!”

Adult Faith Formation: Award in Catholic Theological Education
It is time again to invite applications for the course of formation in Parish Catechesis run in partnership with Glasgow University School of Education. This course might particularly appeal to those already engaged in catechetical work in the parish—in RCIA or with Children—or to someone involved in other aspects of parish life but who has an interest in broadening their responsibilities, perhaps in supporting liturgical ministers, young people or parents.
