It seems weird to only be able to communicate this way, I still have no voice ☹️ I have further tests at Hairmyres this weekend which will hopefully help.
Obviously with no voice I cannot answer the phone so please if you need to contact the parish do so by email firstname.lastname@example.org not by phone or facebook messenger (which I don’t use).
I have added the next few weeks of Sunday masses to eventbrite https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/myevent?eid=145936450853
Please note that we have 1st communions on Saturday 8th, 15th and 22nd at the 1000 and 1200 masses so the families of the communicants will be coming to those masses as has been arranged with them, there are no tickets available on eventbrite for these.
Please keep our communicants in you prayers.
We will also be celebrating 1st reconciliation and confirmation for the children over the next few weeks. so please keep them in your prayers as well.
While I am still out of the game Deacon Joe is going to be celebrating and organizing any baptisms so please contact him. to arrange these.
With the first minister’s announcement today we have to with great regret once more close the church for public masses and private prayer with the exception of funerals. This will take apply from today.
