MASS INTENTIONS Please note that our parish Mass Calendar has intentions ‘booked’ until Easter. To avoid disappointment when requesting a Mass, please speak to me at least 2 MONTHS IN ADVANCE to check if a preferred date is free. An alternative would be to consider sending your Mass intention to the St Patrick’s Missionaries in Stirling who are always happy to receive them.  Thank you.   Fr John
