Monsignor's Retirement Mass: there are DVDs of the Mass available for anybody who would like to buy a copy. The price, depending on numbers, will be between £5 and £7. Please put your name on the list at the back of the Church if you would like to order a copy. The lists will be removed this weekend, so the order can be submitted and the final cost established.

There is a photograph and an article about Monsignor's retirement in this week's Scottish Catholic Observer. Extra copies have been received but if anyone hasn't managed to get a copy and would like more ordered, please put your name on the list beside the papers.

We will soon be looking for willing volunteers to help decorate the Christmas tree, just before Christmas.


Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist/Readers:
It is hoped that more parishioners will consider being commissioned as Ministers in the future. Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist have a role to play within Mass, and also when the Priest requires assistance to provide for regular reception of Holy Communion by the sick and housebound of the Parish, a fundamental work of mercy. Readers are entrusted with reading aloud the Word of God to help make God present as the word is spoken during Mass. Please consider undertaking one of these most important Ministries. There is a list at the back of the Church for names & phone numbers/e-mail addresses so Father Johney can contact you.
