An update from the Society of St. Vincent de Paul:

The local conference of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul have donated a considerable number of Easter eggs to a hospital. The Easter eggs were to be given to children at our Easter Sunday Mass, however as this Mass was not celebrated publicly due to the lockdown, they were donated to a very worthy cause. 
Similarly, a donation has been made to a care home in Glasgow run by religious sisters, to support them in their efforts to secure much needed Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

A Letter to our Parishioners:

Our parish priest, Father Forrest, and Callum Timms, the chair of our Parish Pastoral Council, are writing out to all of our parishioners. These letters are reaching doorsteps across our parish now, however if you haven't receive a letter by post within the next few days, or if any of the name/address details are incorrect, please let us know by getting in touch here. This will enable us to update your entry in our parish records. 

In the meantime, you can read the text of their letter here.

Each Wednesday during Eastertide, our Facebook page and website will host an Easter reflection at 7pm. We hope you can join us! You can watch back the past two weeks on our Facebook page by clicking the following links:
