Newton Primary :  Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays — meet in porch at 8.30 a.m.

New parishioners with children at  primary school should consult the head teachers of Dunblane and Newton about  the provision  of Catholic  R. E.   Also, please inform either Miss Ciccu or Monsignor if you wish  your children to receive  R. E.

We need more mothers to help  with these classes.   Please volunteer if you can

Religious Instruction for High School Pupils

Fridays in Church from 3.30 pm. to 4 p.m.

Please note that these classes in themselves are not  sufficient  to  provide children with an adequate instruction in the Catholic Faith.  To be effective,  they should be  supplemented by teaching ,  discussion, good example and , above all,  family prayer  in our homes.   Instruction and Formation are essential.

We are reminded of the old saying : Use it or lose it.

And the ”IT” is the jewel of great price—the Catholic Faith, gateway to eternal life.  

“Life is very short;  eternity is very long”

Cardinal John  Henry Newman: to be canonised on October 13
