Next Saturday/Sunday there will be a retiral collection after both Masses for the Pastoral Formation Fund, a fund which goes towards meeting the costs of some of the work done at Gillis.

Next Sunday: The annual November Mass for the repose of the souls of all deceased parishioners, friends and families will take place on 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.

Next Sunday: There will be a Youth for Lourdes Meeting held at 3pm in St. Kentigern’s Church Hall, Barnton, Edinburgh.

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.

With every best wish and blessing

to you, your families and those

who are dear to you.

Monsignor Tony.
