"Man does not live on bread alone,
but on every word that comes from
the mouth of God"
During the Lenten Season you may notice some new aspects in the Liturgy for example there may be no recessional hymn emphasising the “mood” of the Liturgy and use of the Apostles’ Creed appropriate for the preparation of those preparing for full Communion with the church at Easter—the second collections at weekend Masses are for the Sick and Retired Priests’ Fund except on the 4th Sunday, when the collections are for S.C.I.A.F (17/18th March).
Lent on your Mobile Phone—The Archdiocese will provide “Lenten thought for the Day” service free to anyone who wishes to make use of it throughout Lent. The idea is to send a short idea or inspirational thought via your mobile phone or computer to help your focus on the message of Lent. Many people leading busy lives have found this a convenient and useful way to help focus their thoughts on spiritual matters in the midst of the buzz of everyday life. To make use of this service visit the Archdiocese of Glasgow Facebook Page and click “like”.
