FIRST COMMUNIONS 2020
We now prepare to welcome more of our parish children from St Ninian’s Primary for their First Communion next Saturday 3rd October at 10:15 am and 11:30 am Mass. On Saturday 10th October we will warmly welcome our parish children who attend other local schools to receive their First Holy Communion at 11:00 am Mass. We are delighted to welcome these children to join us at the Lord’s Table and pray that their enthusiasm, joy, and love of Jesus may grow daily and remain with them throughout their lives. We thank our parents, teachers, catechists, and all
parishioners who have helped to prepare our children for this most memorable day in their lives.
PARISH ST VINCENT DE PAUL SOCIETY CONFERENCE
Have asked us to inform our parishioners that some heating providers are offering a ‘Warm Home Discount Scheme’ at this time of the year. You should check with your ‘provider’ to see if they are operating this scheme as soon as possible. The payment is lodged in your account – March 2021.
SCIAF is currently looking for volunteers to help them raise awareness of SCIAF’s work in parishes throughout Scotland. Please help them as they seek to hopefully welcome 100 new Parish Volunteers over the next two years helping to champion SCIAF’s brand new campaign to stop hunger, conflict, and injustice. Could you put up posters, hand out WEE BOXES in St Ninian’s, deliver talks about SCIAF’s work or organise fundraising events in St Ninian’s? Join the SCIAF team, make new friends, and give a hand up to people in poverty.
Our parish community extends our sympathy and the support of our prayers to the families and friends of Irene Kenny (Crusader Avenue), Arthur Durnan (Kestrel Road), and Gerard Bailey (Gowanlee Road, Old Drumchapel) whose funeral Masses and Committals took place on Monday 21st, Tuesday 22nd, and Thursday 24th this week.
– May they rest in peace –
