Date for your Diary: Bo’ness ‘Churches Together’ Prayer Day
The next Prayer Day will take place on Saturday, 22nd October in St Catharine’s Church, Cadzow Avenue from 10.00 am to12 noon. The Day’s theme will be based on readings from Ephesians, Chapter 6. We will be sharing verse 15:- "let the shoes on your feet be the gospel of peace, to give you firm footing", with St Andrew’s. This is the first year St Mary’s will be participating, so we hope for a good representation from the parish.

Christmas Toy Appeal:

The Salvation Army is urgently appealing for new children’s toys/games, to distribute among needy and vulnerable families in the area, at Christmas time.

If you can contribute, please either hand your donations directly into the Salvation Army, or leave them with one of our Pass Keepers and we will forward them.

Please help if you can!

Children’s Liturgy …..

All children between the ages of 3 and 12 are invited to attend – and very young children are welcome to sit at the back of the Hall with accompanied adults.

We have a number of religious books that are suitable for young people – and would be grateful of any relevant donations of unwanted books, games or jigsaws in good condition. Finally- and very urgently – more Leaders are required. Full training will be given. If you can help us with this, please contact Maria Ford.
