SVDP
The Conference would like to thank all parishioners for their generosity this year. Box collections averaged between fifty and Sixty pounds (£50--£60_ weekly. This year we have supported needy families in Renton and had also had an Older peoples’ Day out to Loch Lomond. Also Pantomime planned in January. Local Facebook is also supported. Wish you all a Happy and Holy Christmas and a Peaceful New Year.

Fr Anthony would like to wish all our parishioners and your loved ones all the joys and blessings of this holy season of Christmas. Many thanks for your invaluable support, friendship, care and generosity throughout the year. Please be assured of my remembrance of your intentions during Christmas Masses. Wishing you all Happy New Year when it comes.
 
Youth Group
Well done to our youth group who made 30 Christmas gifts to donate to Quarries What If project which supports young homeless people aged 15-25. They donated the items and wrapped them before they were collected for the young people at Christmas. Please see the pictures in the porch.
 
St Margaret’s Adoption Society: Annual Crib Appeal 2018
As we know this is the only United Kingdom only Catholic adoption Society and the money raised through the boxes and crib donations are vital for the solvency of the running of the Society. So if you would wish to help, apart from the crib donations, you can pick up one of the boxes in the porch and return later.
