The very positive School Review, carried out by the City of Edinburgh Council, stated, “There was a consistently high standard of learning and teaching throughout the school.”  If you are thinking about other schools, go and visit St. Cuthbert’s first before you make your mind up.

If you are planning to come please buy your tickets and not just promise to.  It will be a B.Y.O.B and a B.Y.O.F. night.

The Stall has the new edition of Living Faith, covering October – December, priced £1.40 available along with Catholic diaries for 2013.  It also has Advent Candles and Calendars for sale as well as 2013 catholic diaries and unique St. Cuthbert’s pens. Why not pay a visit.

November is the month when we remember those members of our families and parish who have died and we pray especially for them.

  • The Book of Remembrance is at the back of the Church into which you can add the names of any people you wish to be remembered and who have died in the past year. If you have put names in in previous years there is no need to repeat the entry.
  • The annual November Mass for the repose of the souls of all deceased parishioners, friends and families will take place on Sunday 25th at 3.00 p.m. in the Church.  All are welcome to come and take part and please feel free to invite relatives and friends of parishioners who have died who may live in other parishes.

With every best wish and blessing

to you, your families and those

who are dear to you.

Monsignor Tony.


Remembrance Sunday.

They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old:

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning

We will remember them



Eternal Rest

Grant unto them

O Lord


Let perpetual light

Shine upon them.

May they rest in peace.
