All who come to him will live forever."
Coffee Morning Please come along and join us this Sunday, 17th June after 10am Mass, for the last coffee morning before the holidays. It’s also Father’s Day, so why not treat dad to a well deserved cuppa and some of our delicious home bak- ing. This month we will be raising funds for The Child Bereavement Uk Charity, which supports families and educates professional when a baby or child of any age is dying or when a child is facing bereavement.
Many thanks to all who came along to April’s coffee morning at which the sum of £152.20 was raised for Marie Curie Hospice. A thank you letter from the Charity is displayed on the narthex board together with a thank you letter from the National Autistic Society Scotland. Thank you for your continued support throughout the year and we hope you all have a wonderful summer. Veronica and David Maguire

Privacy and GDPR: From 25 May 2018 new stringent regulations concerning privacy of individuals’ names and contact details have been in force. This will have major implications for the handling of personal data within our parish. We have always taken this seriously, but now, by law, we can no longer allow access to parish registers. Requests for information such as the re-issue of a baptismal certificate must now be made in person by the one who requests the certificate. A relative can no longer undertake to do this. Please note that church registers can no longer be made available for e.g. researching family history. (The Archdiocese of Glasgow has a policy for the use of data in its parishes, offices and other institutions, which is available at http://www.rcag.org.uk/index.php/the-archdiocese/diocesan-curia/privacy-notice.)
Privacy and GDPR – Every parish will soon be changing to an email address which will be provided by the Archdiocese of Glasgow.
