All celebrations of Mass, parish activities and meetings are suspended until further notice.


Visiting the Church

Bring your own gel. Sanitize your hands on entering and leaving.  Also the door knob. There is warm water and soap available in the sacristy which is  open. Use the front of the church . Sanitize the  places which your hands have touched.


Sunday Offerings

If possible, make them out by banker’s order–sort code and account number available from me   This  is the safest way. Otherwise put it through the letter box of the parish house.


Sacraments

Holy Communion,  Confession and anointing of the Sick available on request.


SCIAF Donations: Use the Wee Box   .  No Collection.


Funerals

Only a grave- side service possible.  Mass will be celebrated privately


Streaming of the Mass

This takes place from a number of Churches  e.g. Glasgow Cathedral.

And especially on EWTN the Catholic Channel

St. John Henry Newman–Trusting  in God in difficult times

“I will trust Him.  Where ever I am, I can never be thrown away.  If I am in sickness, my sickness may serve Him, in perplexity, my perplexity may serve Him.  If I am in sorrow, my sorrow may serve Him. He does nothing in vain.  He knows what he is about .  He may take away my friends.  He may throw me among strangers. .  He may make me feel desolate , make my spirits sink, hide my future from me.

 Still, He knows what He is about ”


A Prayer of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.  I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.  Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.  I embrace You as if you were already there and unite myself wholly to You.  Never permit me to be separated from You. 

Amen.


May God bless and keep us and our loved ones at this anxious time

St. Michael the Archangel, pray for us
