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.

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.
