The Offertory Collections last weekend amounted to £385 - grateful thanks to all donors.
Mary’s Meals: We are once again appealing for support for this very worthy charity. If new school bags and school essentials are being bought for the new term, please consider donating last year’s bags and equipment to Mary’s Meals. Among the many articles required are:- pens, pencils, rubbers, rulers, pencil cases, jotters, balls, rucksacks, tooth brushes, toothpaste, hand towels, shorts, polo/T shirts and flip-flops.
Special Collection - Day for Life: There will be a special collection today which will be used to help protect and care for our families and friends as they near the end of life. The collection supports quality palliative care to provide dignity to the dying while valuing life to its natural end, as well as organisations working to protect the disabled from changes in the law. A basket for today’s Special Collection is in the church hall.
Corpus Christi Procession: As part of the Eucharistic renewal in the Archdiocese this liturgical year, you are invited to take part in a Corpus Christi procession, led by Archbishop Cushley, at St Francis Xavier’s in Falkirk on Sunday 19 June at 3pm. Gather at the Bandstand in High Street (FK1 1YD) before processing to St Francis Xavier’s Parish (around 20 min walk). This is a major event for the Archdiocese and should be a beautiful and prayerful experience (as well as a chance to be a witness to the Eucharistic Christ in public).
Family Afternoon: A Family Afternoon at the Gillis Centre will take place on Saturday 25 June, 2.00pm-5.00pm at the Gillis Centre, 100 Strathearn Road, Edinburgh. It will include separate sessions for adults and children, focusing on The Eucharist: Source of Family Love, family prayer time in St Margaret’s Chapel and family games. This event coincides with the 10th World Meeting of Families taking place in Rome. Details and registration at bit.ly/ArchEventbrite
