Confessions + Home Visits – Please contact Fr John directly 

 

HOLY WEEK 27th March – 4th April The hope is that we may be permitted to open up our churches for at least the Triduum and maybe even from Passion / Palm Sunday through all of Holy Week. Check our Facebook page for proposed time-table of Masses and other events and daily media sources for updates. 

 

Thursday evenings 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th March will have on-line Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament accompanied by prayers and a short seasonal reflection to aid our own Lenten observances from 7-7.30pm. 

 

Places of Worship:  The First Minister has announced that the current ‘Stay at Home’ restrictions will remain in place for at least another month.   It is anticipated that Places of Worship will be allowed to open just prior to Easter, although the Church continues to lobby for an earlier date and increased capacity limits.

In meantime, Fr John continues to livestream all Masses (we start broadcasting just prior to start of Holy Mass) – access the following link - Livestream

Archdiocesan News

Stations of the Cross - organised by the Archdiocesan Pro-Life Office, will take place each Monday evening of Lent at 7:45pm. The Stations will be followed by a short reflection by one of our priests. Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/o/archdiocese-of-st-andrews-amp-edinburgh-18333988801

St Joseph Prayer book – This excellent pocketsize book has been produced by the Archdiocese.  We have secured enough copies so that each family can receive one (free of charge).  Children at St Bernadette’s will receive one via the school, others can collect their copy from the Church House or alternatively when the Church re-opens 

World Day of Prayer - This takes place on Friday, 5 March and the theme is Build on a Strong Foundation (Matthew 7: 24-27). Find out more at www.wdpscotland.org.uk/

Emergency Appeal - Mary's Meals has launched an emergency appeal for aid for Tigray, Ethiopia where millions of people have been displaced as a result of civil conflict and are lacking food and basic necessities. Donations can be made at www.marysmeals.org.uk.  

 

Fr John writes…The extension of restrictions places further stress on all of us and it is so important to continue to look out for each other both physically and spiritually. We do see some light at the end of the tunnel, however with reducing infection rates and vaccine rollout levels.  Hopefully we can come together again soon in the celebration of Holy Mass in our Church.
