Advent Journey - Just a reminder to all parents that we have good children's liturgy resources on our social media platforms. Would be good to use during this holy Season of Advent, especially while there's still no children's liturgy at Mass, due to the Covid-19 restrictions.
Plus, there's the P7s /PFFA superb Advent calendar to help with the advent journey. And for grown ups, there's Journey through Advent material posted daily to help us prepare and get ready during this Advent journey.
Redemptorist Publications is pleased to introduce Celebrate - an initiative designed to help children grow in their faith.
Each week we will provide a Children’s Liturgy in the form of a video of the week’s Gospel reading, a reflection and a final prayer.
Fun, engaging and practical worksheets/resources will also be provided to help children continue to practise their faith during this special season of Advent and beyond.
We pray that this new resource will encourage children and their families to think about how they can grow in their faith whilst having fun.
God bless you all.
St Andrew's Youth Ministry has produced an Advent Calendar available here.
As we can’t all get together as much as we would like this year, we thought it might cheer everyone up if we produced and shared an advent calendar, and we have done this with the help of Primary 7 pupils of St Nicholas Primary School.
Behind the doors will be a few pieces of art for you to enjoy each day. Simply click on the day and you will be taken straight to the images which you can scroll through for that day. Then you can click back to the calendar and wait for the next day.
We hope you like our Advent Calendar and it brings you a little festive cheer each day.
The funerals for Denis Loney, Angela Lee and Pat Flanigan will take place on Tuesday 1st December, Thursday 3rd December, and Tuesday 8th December respectively.
Please pray for Denis, Angela and Pat and the peaceful repose of their souls, and their families.
Hope this finds you safe and well.
These are often called strange times. It’s been strange these months booking to go to Mass.
One of the things that will make this Christmas that bit different and strange is having to book a seat to go to Mass at Christmas.
From all the replies you kindly sent in re our Planning for Christmas, over 400 people have said they would like to attend Mass at Christmas.
We have, therefore, arranged to have some extra Masses, which should accommodate 500 people.
Times of Christmas Masses at St Andrew's are:
Christmas Eve: Vigil Masses: 4.00pm & 5.30pm
Christmas Day: 8.30am, 10am and 12.00 noon
Our 10am Mass Christmas Day Mass will be live streamed on our YouTube channel.
Please book through the Mass booking system.

As the number of places at Mass continues to be severely restricted, if you are unable to reserve a space at one of the Christmas Masses, please do consider attending an alternative Mass during the Christmas Season – or after the rush is over! Many thanks.
We'll announce soon times for Confessions for Christmas.
There's a lot happening this Advent - this Saturday's appeal for children's winter clothing. Drop off between 12 and 3 in the car park. Next Saturday's advent appeal for gifts for homeless people - see our social media for details - drop off between 12 and 3.
Our appeal for donations for Drumchapel Foodbank continues, especially in the run up to Christmas - you can drop off donations anytime in the house porch.
We'll announce very soon our rethink for our advent youth evening. Plus, look out for our daily Journey through Advent starting this Sunday.
We're working on setting up an outdoor crib next to the tree, plus look out for our Carol Singing video, which we'll put out on our YouTube channel, and it'll help deliver some much needed Christmas cheer, I'm sure.
Best wishes and keep well.
This year, SCIAF is asking people in Scotland to buy a water filter as a Christmas gift to help parents in Ethiopia to protect their children from preventable diseases caused by dirty and unsafe water.
It will also enable the women and girls who would normally spend hours walking to fetch often dirty, dangerous water, to get an education and learn the skills they need to break the poverty cycle.
Please see the poster and catalogue on the church notice board or visit www.sciaf.org.uk/realgifts for some other gift ideas.
