The children who have been baptised in the parish over the last year, together with their parents and sponsors, are invited to mark the occasion with a celebration at 12 noon Mass today and afterwards at the Upper Hall. Please return the reply slips to help with catering. Thank you. Today marks the end of Christmastide this year.

Christmas Quarterly Collection—is now due.
ABC Carol Singing—Thank you so much to the singers representing St. Andrew’s Church at ASDA on Saturday 10th December. ASDA only allowed 12 singers each hour, so we were restricted to four singers from each of the nine churches, in our three hour slot. The fantastic sum of £704 was raised, which will be split between Glasgow City Mission and St. Margaret’s Hospice.
The Liturgical Calendar—Omits the fact that, on the occasion of there being no Sunday in the Octave of Christmas, the Feast of the Holy Family is celebrated on 30th December. Please note this omission, 30th December is therefore the Feast of the Holy Family.
Life—Date for your Diary—The very successful Fiddler's Rally Concert will take place at 7.30 p.m. on Friday 10th February 2012, in the City Chambers, Glasgow.
