Meditation Corner ~ Over a period of almost three months from May to July 2020, during the “first wave” of the COVID 19 pandemic when all churches and places of worship were closed (at the suggestion of a parishioner) Monsignor Ryan sought to raise the spirits of the congregation at St. Andrew’s by sharing his reflections on eleven poems. These reflections, which became known as “Meditation Corner”, are now contained in a booklet which will be available in the Porch this weekend at the price of £10.
ALL PROFITS WILL GO TO ST. MARGARET’S HOSPICE, CLYDEBANK.
