Saturday 27th & Sunday 28th AID TO THE CHURCH IN NEED. Michael Willis is making an appeal on behalf of the persecuted Church. Aid to the Church in Need is a Pontifical Foundation which is accountable to the Holy See. Our purpose is to support the suffering Church around the world. The recent bombings in Sri Lanka highlight the terrible persecution faced by our brothers and sisters in Christ. Our support is not just humanitarian but pastoral. In our last financial year we distributed 1.4 million Mass Stipends for 40,000 priests. We helped train nearly 12,000 seminarians (1 in 10 world-wide). We supported 11,000 Religious Sisters in their formation or further studies. Many of these vocations are emerging from the blood of martyrs. We supported over 150 different types of Missionary Orders. We undertook 2,470 construction projects to fund chapels, seminaries, etc. We support pro-life projects and provide materials for catechism. Gift aid envelopes are available in advance of the Appeal.
Saturday Vigil 3rd & Sunday Mass 4th  Mission appeal by The Sisters of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary. 
FOOD BANK  It has been reported to the SSVP, from the food bank, that
we have stopped accepting food by some parishioners. We have not stopped. With this mind, the school holidays have started and there will be a lot of families struggling through this period. Please keep this in mind over the next six weeks.  We really appreciate all the donations you give to the food bank and so do they.
Broken Rosary beads ?   We all have precious sets of Rosary beads, many have come to us down the generations and others hold special memories of pilgrimages we have made to Marian Shrines.  It can be upsetting when they become damaged or broken but happily help is at hand.  Maureen runs a small business in the west of Scotland dealing in a range of devotional items for purchase but also offering a repair service for those cherished items which need a little TLC.  If you have a set of Rosary beads requiring repair why not e-mail her with your request or check out the web-site
