The Venerable Margaret Sinclair   Fr Joe McAuley, the Archbishop’s Delegate for the Cause, has written reminding us that on the first Monday of every month there is a 7pm Mass at St Patrick’s Church, Edinburgh praying for Blessed Margaret’s Beatification.  The next will be on 4th December.  If enough parishioners with a special devotion to her would like to attend that Mass we might even book a mini-bus.  Please let me know your thoughts.  Fr John
SCIAF On this 100th anniversary of the birth of Archbishop Oscar Romero SCIAF is organising an Advent Appeal for the people of El Salvador, particularly the disabled in order to help them support themselves and stand up for their rights.  If you’d like to help please pick up a leaflet from the porch as you leave Mass today.  Thank you.
