Parish Finance
Last weekend’s income was:
Offertory Collection: £483.00 & 2nd Collection: £305.00. Many thanks to all parishioners for your continuous financial help to the parish and to the Archdiocese, especially last week’s collection for the Scottish Catholic Media Office. Most appreciated.
 
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!”
 
First Holy Communion
We congratulate our Primary 4 schoolchildren of St Martin’s Primary School who make their First Holy Communion this Sunday. We thank the Head Teacher, their class teacher, the staff, their fellow pupils in the school, their parents and the parish Catechists for all their invaluable assistance to these children. We heartily welcome our children to the table of the Lord.
 
May Devotion

The Flourish (May Edition)
The May edition of Flourish, is now available at the back of the church.
 
Molly’s Kilt Walk!
Molly would like to thank everyone who donated to her sponsor sheet in aid of St Vincent De Paul. She enjoyed a great day and completed the walk with family and friends (though naturally exhausted the following day!!!). There is still time to make donations as the money is to be in by the 30th May, after which she shall announce the Grand Total.
 
Memorial of Mary Mother of the Church
Pope Francis has instituted a Memorial of Mary, Mother of the Church, to be celebrated each year on Monday after Pentecost. Though the Liturgical Calendar for Scotland does not yet include this memorial, nonetheless it is going to be observed this year on Monday after Pentecost, 21st May 2018.
