Here is a link to this week’s newsletter which now includes the reflection: 26th Sunday in Ordinary Time 2020.pdf Newsletter Anything to share? Then write in the book in the porch or e-mail mcfarrell@btinternet.com or pm the Facebook page. The deadline is 10.00am on Thursdays. Please read the following letter from Rev Fr Kingsley Chigbo about the Resumption of Mass: Please be guided by the Ministers of Welcome, we MUST observe the following: social distancing – 2m inside the Church face-coverings to be worn by those attending (except under-5s) a maximum attendance of 50 people per service - to be reviewed soon for each service, the parish needs names and contact details of all attendees. GF Live streaming: From now on, the weekday livestreaming of Holy Mass will cease. We thank everyone who used that medium to join us for the Holy Mass during the period of lockdown. I believe it has been good and profitable for our faith. Now that we have resumed weekday Masses in the churches, we will restrict the livestreaming to Sundays at 12 noon. God bless you all KC Farewell: to Marek and Krystyna who are returning to Poland. We wish them every happiness. Sunday will be their last with us.  GF Volunteers: we urgently need cleaners for the church, we are now down to three teams, soon to be two. We really need another 2 or 3 teams to spread the load. Please think about it and contact Graeme or myself for information.  MF Catechist Sunday:  Normally, this Sunday would be the day we mark the work of catechists across the diocese.  Please keep all of our catechists in your prayers.  MF   Safeguarding:  Again, normally, next weekend would be our annual Safeguarding update and reminder.  Our Parish Safeguarding Coordinator is Elizabeth Danby, her telephone number is noted below.  Please do not hesitate to contact her if you have any concerns regarding Safeguarding issues.  A copy of “In God’s Image” the manual of the Bishops Conference of Scotland is available for reference from Elizabeth.  MF Anniversary of the Canonisation of St John Ogilvie: Bishop Hugh will be here on 17th October to celebrate Mass at 11 am.  The usual restrictions will apply, so please book for that Mass as you would any weekend Mass.  Bookings will open from Monday 5th October. KC Pope Francis’s message for September:  We pray that the planet’s resources will not be plundered, but shared in a just and respectful manner. MF Finances:  Second collection this week for Peter’s Pence (moved from June), so there will be an extra basket at the door. The collection from all the Masses last week came to £194.20, thank you. If you wish to make a contribution to the church online, contact Ged for bank details. We really need your financial support, given the drop in income during lockdown. GF   Prayer Group:  Monday 28th at 7pm on Zoom in the meantime.  If you need the link, contact Ged.
