19th July: The Director of the Vatican Observatory, Brother Guy Consolmagno SJ, will be presenting his talk “Adventures of a Vatican Astronomer” on Thursday 19th July at 7.30pm at the Lauriston Jesuit Centre in Edinburgh. All are very welcome. Brother Guy Consolmagno is both a Jesuit brother and a planetary scientist at the Vatican Observatory, splitting his time between the meteorite collection in Rome and the Vatican telescope in Arizona. Thanks to his Vatican connections, his work has sent him around the world several times to dozens of countries and every continent (including a meteorite hunting expedition to Antarctica). In this talk in Edinburgh he will share some of those adventures, and reflect on the larger meaning of the common experience of scientists… not only what they do, but why they do it.
As the holiday season is now upon us will all Readers, Eucharistic Ministers and Altar Servers please remember to ensure they have arranged cover if they are going to be away. This is especially important when a visiting priest is here to celebrate Mass. Please use the ‘post its’ in the sacristy to let me know about any swaps you make.
Holidays: If you are going away, I hope you have a safe journey and come back refreshed and relaxed. If you are staying at home, I hope you find some time to relax and take a break from your usual routine. If you are a visitor, you are welcome to our Parish, our city and our country.
Emergency Cover while I am in Lourdes will be provided by Father Tom (449.2372), Father Tony Quinlan at St. John Ogilvie’s (453.5035) or the Augustinian Community at St. Joseph’s (443.3777) I am grateful to them for providing this support and to the parishioners who will be looking after the house.
The Parish Barbeque held last Saturday in St. Cuthbert’s raised £575.00 Along with some donations this means the total raised for the Parish Project is an amazing £6348.64.
