It is with great joy that we welcome into our community of faith, Skye, Isabella Pinto, who will be baptised on Monday. To Chantelle and Sinclair, we offer our congratulations and  our prayers.

Visiting the sick

We are unfortunately unable to visit the sick in their homes at this time. We are still in contact either by phone, or e-mail.

Thank you to all who continue to work in tracking and tracing and cleaning the churches

We give thanks to all who are working so tirelessly to keep our churches safe and open, at this time. Many people have asked if they have to book to come along to mass, during the week, or at the weekend. There are always plenty spaces, and you are all most welcome.

Holy Souls

Many thanks to those who handed in their November lists. If you wish to still do so, there are lists in St. John’s and St. Mary’s.


Many people have asked me what is going to happen regarding masses over the Christmas period. Times have still to be arranged, but due to their only being one priest, and the problem of limited numbers of cleaners, and limited numbers who can attend mass at one time, (I.E. 50), we will probably have to have a booking system in place nearer the time.

Scottish Catholic Education Week

Takes place between the 16th and the 30th of November 2020. If you would like further information about being a teacher in our Catholic schools please contact the Scottish Catholic Education Service,


My day booklets are available now at the back of St. John’s and St. Mary’s.

Mass for the Holy Souls

We propose to have a mass for the Holy Souls on Thursday the 26th of November at 7pm in St. Mary’s. This gives us all a chance to come together and pray for those we have loved and missed, particularly remembering those who have died since last year.
