Order of Mass Booklets
The mass of the Second Vatican Council (1970 missal) is bi-lingual, in our country, containing Latin and English.
This is the mass offered most days at 9.30am in our parish, on Sundays at the vigil, 9.30am and 11.30am. To help you with this, Latin/English booklet missals are available in church. They are the small blue covered booklets, they have the English and Latin beside each other, and they can be found on the table in the hall beside the bulletins.
Please do not panic about the use of Latin at mass. Latin is part of our ancient unbroken tradition during the worship of the Mass. Only small amounts of Latin will be used during the Vatican II Masses, and this Latin will be said by the priest. The booklets are there to help you, please use them.
As regards the Traditional Latin Mass (1962 Missal – offered on Tuesdays (6.15pm), Wednesdays (12.30pm), Thursdays (6.15pm) and Saturdays (9.30am), to help with this Mass there are new there are new booklet missals and small starter missals for children.

Parish lotto – update next week.
The sale of work went very well on Saturday 18th June. The total raised was £395. Sincere thanks to all who contributed in any way to the success of the sale.
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 12 people in one day. This almost emptied our food store. Thanks to the generosity of the St Vincent de Paul Society more food has been bought, but we are still in need of tinned foods. Please bring your donations to church or to the chapel house. Many thanks.
The parish soup run on Saturday 2nd July was a good success, with around 50 men receiving soup, sandwiches and clothes at Bellgrove Hostel and Wallace of Campsie House. The men were hugely grateful for the parish’s generosity. The next soup run will take place on Saturday 3rd September. Donations of men’s clothing, sandwiches, fruit, chocolate and cigarettes are needed.
