Commonwealth Games - As part of the Archdiocese of Glasgow's Service Through Sport initiative, Catholic churches in the city centre and around Commonwealth Games' venues will be open throughout the day, giving athletes, coaches and spectators opportunities to participate in the daily Eucharist, celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation or spend time in quiet prayer and reflection. See porch noticeboard for a list of churches and times of services.
Are you interested in becoming a member of the Catholic Church? If you are, speak to Fr Mackle, who will be happy to talk you through the RCIA process. To be baptised, confirmed and come to share in the Eucharist is possible at any age! Today, men and women from a variety of backgrounds are responding to the call to follow Christ and celebrate the Sacraments of the Church.

New Hymn Supplement - within the next few weeks we will be introducing a hymn supplement for use along with our Laudate hymnal. This will include a number of well known hymns for both parish and St Andrew’s Primary school use, as well as the new Gloria, which we've been learning over the past few weeks. Music is such an important part of the liturgy and very much enhances our experience at Mass, and I hope that having a more extensive range of hymns will further help us with this.
