CATHOLICISM ?
Do you feel drawn to exploring Christianity in the Catholic tradition, maybe even wondering about becoming a Catholic ? Well, RCIA [The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults] might be for you. Our local Cluster Parishes run RCIA each year for those like you who have a real desire to discover more about Jesus and His Church and what it means to believe and belong. St Francis Xavier’s, Falkirk hosts these weekly RCIA sessions annually from September to June. Please contact me if you’d like to know more. Fr John

MASS INTENTIONS & STIPENDS  As you may know, HMRC regards priests as self-employed with Mass Intention stipends being considered part of their personal income. These tend to dry up on retirement. A retired Priest friend has asked me if I could send him any surplus Mass Intentions. You may have several forthcoming Mass Intentions which you would be happy for me to forward to my friend. Please speak to me if this is something you would be willing to consider.   Thank you.  Fr John
