Parish Bulletin – 10th July

Upcoming EventsApostleship of the Sea Logo

Sea Sunday: The second collection today goes to the Apostleship of the Sea, who spiritually help Catholic seafarers when they come to UK ports from around the world. Last year we gave £146 to the Apostleship of the Sea. Can we improve on that this year?
Please note that Vespers & Benediction is on this evening at 6.30pm.

Confession is available before and after all masses and services.

A group of American students from Glasgow Caledonian University will be attending the 11.30am Mass next Sunday 17th July. Please help to welcome them.

Announcements

The collection last week, and subsequent donations, for the upkeep of the parish minibus have raised over £400, thanks to your outstanding generosity. A final total will be printed next week.

Ordination to the Priesthood: Deacon Ninian Doohan (also known as Brother Ninian) has been a regular visitor at the Latin Mass in Immaculate Heart over the last two years. Brother Ninian will be ordained on August 15th in Dundee. He will offer two masses in Immaculate Heart the following week. If you would like to contribute towards a gift for Brother Ninian, please give your donation to Fr. Morris over the next few weeks.

Sponsor the weekly sanctuary lamps in memory of a deceased relative or friend, or for some other prayer intention. Give £5 and intention to John or Fr Morris.

To sponsor the church flowers, please give £10 or more plus your intention to Agnes or Irene.

Fundraising

The Bingo on Wednesday 6th July raised a very handy £151 for parish funds. Many thanks to all who organised and took part.

Parish lotto – there was one winner last week. This week’s jackpot is £25.

Community

The Parish Food Store has food available for those who need a helping hand. Speak to Fr Morris if you know of someone in need. Last week the parish fed 5 families. We are still in need of donations. Please bring your donations to church or to the chapel house. A list of suggested items can be found here.

The next soup run will take place on Saturday 3rd September. Donations of men’s clothing, sandwiches, fruit, chocolate and cigarettes are needed.
