The audit team would like to hear from anyone who has disclosed abuse, shared concerns of unsafe people or practice and also from survivors of non-recent Church-related abuse, their families and friends. Copies of a notice containing further information and contact details for the SCIE are available at the back of the church.

LOOKING AHEAD
 
Saturday 11th May 2019 ANNUAL PARISH  RETREAT [ SAVE THE DATE]
The annual parish retreat will take place on Saturday May 11 at Kinnoull Monastery in Perth.  The date has been changed from October to May in the hope that the sun shines. It is a whole day retreat leaving by bus from Larbert at approx 9.15am and returning 4.00 – 5.00pm.  One of the Redemptorist Fathers will lead us through the day. More details will be given later and a list will go on the Notice Board at the beginning of April.
This year the total cost will be £10.  Fr John is subsidising the retreat through parish funds as it is of spiritual value to us all. If you are new to St. Bernadette’s you would be very welcome. For more information about Kinnoull Monastery go to kinnoullmonastery.co.uk 
 
The Guild of St Cuthbert  The Archdiocese is launching its own new scheme for the practical training and spiritual development of our teams of Altar Servers under the patronage of St Cuthbert. There will be an enrolment service each autumn and to qualify for membership each person will have to serve at 10 Saturday Vigil / Sunday morning Masses. More on this in the next week or so…….
