Month of the Sacred Heart:  Now that Mary’s lovely month of May is complete we’re entering into the traditional month of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in which we

celebrate his heart as the fount of love and mercy for the whole human race.  Jesus’ compassion is at the forefront setting an example for all of us to follow in these divided times.  Friday is the Feast of the Sacred Heart.  It’s a Solemnity; the highest level of feast, so there’s a vigil mass the night before at 7pm and morning mass as usual at 10am Friday

 

Upcoming special Collections:  The annual day for life will take place on Sunday 16th of June.  There will be a special collection to support causes for the protection of human life at all stages.  There’s also a special collection for Peter’s Pence on the Solemnity of St Peter and St Paul on 29th June.

 

Rev Dr Tom Magill:  Former vice rector of the Scots College, Rome & former Lecturer in Biblical Studies at Glasgow University will be leading an introduction to the heart of Mark’s gospel at Holy Cross parish in Croy.  It will be a ‘Conversation in the Spirit’ (as favoured by Pope Francis), taking as its reference points two healings of blind men in that gospel. The discussion is entitled ‘What’s going on in between these healings?’  Wednesday 12 June at 7.30- 8.15pm, with Questions until 8.30pm, followed by light refreshments until 9pm.  Father Tom is covering here at Saint Andrew’s at the end of July so you’re in for a treat.

 

The Newman Association:  Dr Linden Bicket will present a talk entitled ‘Conversion and a literary marriage – Ann and George Scott-Moncrieff’ at 7.30pm on Thursday 6th June 2024 in The Parish Hall, Immaculate Conception Church, 2049 Maryhill Road, Glasgow.  This talk was rescheduled from 1st Feb.

 

Building Fund:  Our total so far, after only four months, is £10,700.  Amazing.  Thanks so much.
