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
