Feast of The Holy Trinity

” God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not be lost but may have eternal life “

John. 3:16

Dear Parishioner,

Graces and Blessings.

This weekend we meditate on the most wonderful mystery of our Faith and on our eternal destiny : –
the Most Blessed Trinity – God as He has revealed himself to us.
The great St. Athanasius says if a person lacks faith in the Blessed Trinity he/she does not know God.
I hope you enjoy reading the Notes on the meaning of the Feast
and the commentary by Scott Hahn on the Sunday readings.
And I hope that meditating on the meaning of the Feast will give your spirits a lift at this time.
The love of God for each of us—young and old, black and white, rich and poor  ( we could go on ! )   has no limit.

Rejoice in your Faith.

Monsignor

Please continue to pray for Theresa in PRI and also for Patricia McGillvray who is very ill in Ninewells .

Mass Times

No Public Masses

In an unprecedented move, Scotland’s Catholic bishops have announced that with effect from Thursday 19th March, no public Masses will be celebrated in Scotland. In a statement release on Wednesday 18th March the bishops announced, that priests would continue to celebrate Holy Mass in private, praying for those suffering from Covid-19 and those who care for them.

For more information read the full article on the Diocese of Dunkeld web site.

Mass Live Streams

It is possible to get live streams of privately held Masses in Scotland via the internet.

A good example would be St Andrew’s Cathedral, Glasgow who broadcast Masses daily.

Monday to Saturday
08.15am, 1pm and 5.15pm (5.15pm Saturday is a Sunday Vigil)

Sunday
10am, 12 noon, 5.15pm

While not replacing Mass or our Sunday obligation these broadcasts may act as a focus for meditation on the Word of God.
