The picture window in the Sanctuary was commissioned from the renowned Scottish artist, Brendan Berry who gave us kind permission to have Mass cards printed featuring it. The Carmelite sisters in Dysart undertook this for us and have printed 200 for General Intentions and 200 for the Repose of the Soul of deceased family or friends. Margaret has these cards available from the Stall priced at £.60p each.    
With families returning to Sunday worship here after being away during the summer holidays, this is the ideal time for our young parishioners to consider the privilege and honour of becoming ALTAR SERVERS. To begin with no one would be left to serve Mass on their own: There would always be an experienced Altar Server to help.  So, if you have made your first holy communion and would like to join our team then please contact Fr John or one of our Sacristans,  John Daly or Jean Watson and we will be delighted to welcome you, arrange a couple of training sessions and enrol you into the Team. You might also like to have a chat with one of the current Altar Servers to find out a bit more.
