WHY NOT TRY ONE
HERITAGE LOTTERY FUND and HISTORIC SCOTLAND:
We received approx. £230,000 the maximum grant available. We hope to start the work in October. Sincere thanks to all those who worked
so hard to make this possible.
We will need to keep fundraising going for the decoration of the church and continued maintenance of the roof.
Thank you for your prayers.
Thank you also to the Adorers of the Sacred Heart (The Tyburn Nuns, London) who continually keep our community and this intention in their daily prayer.
Please keep Bishop Toal and his family in your prayers. The Bishop received word last Sunday evening of two separate and unrelated accidents; the first was a car accident involving a brother and of his nephews (two other individuals were involved in this accident), the other accident involved an older nephew. Bishop Toal’s brother and two nephews are now critically ill in the new Southern General Hospital.
THOSE BEING ADMITTED TO HOSPITAL
Please inform Father Hughes of your intended stay in Hospital.
In preparation for going, you may want to receive the Sacrament of Sick.
When being admitted to the Ward please inform those in charge
that you are a Roman Catholic and would be happy to see the Chaplain.
Often Holy Communion is distributed in hospitals on a Sunday.
EXPOSITION OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT:
Every Friday evening there is a Holy Hour
from 7.00 till 8.00 p.m.
This is where you have an opportunity to spend time before Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament.
Just being still and quiet in His presence and letting his love come to you will fill your hearts and souls with a calm serenity and peace of mind.
So at the end of a hard and stressful week why not come and spend a few moments to experience the great peace and tranquility that will see you through the week ahead.
