APRIL
 
Sunday 23rd Family Mass: our next Family Mass will be held on 23 April. Can any of our younger parishioners (and their families) who would like to participate on the day please speak to Fr John or one of the Children's Liturgy team.  Thank you.
 
JUNE
 
Saturday  3rd  This is an important message. Due to the sheer number of children from our Cluster Parishes being Confirmed this spring, it has been decided to have two celebrations on Saturday 3rd rather than one which could have exceeded the maximum permissible attendance / seating capacity at St Francis Xavier’s Church. Archbishop Cushley will thus administer the Sacrament of Confirmation to children from St Francis Xavier’s and St Andrew’s at 12noon and to children from Our Lady of Lourdes & St Bernadette’s, Larbert and St Anthony’s, Polmont at 2pm.
