The Bishops of Scotland  have asked that the following prayer be said at all Masses to mark the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty the Queen:

Almighty God, to whom all authority in heaven and on earth belongs, be with all earthly leaders and especially with your servant, Elizabeth, as she celebrates her Diamond Jubilee as our Queen. 

We thank  you for all that has been achieved by her, and pray that she may continue to be blessed with good health and Christian wisdom in the times ahead. 

Watch over her own family and all who belong to her family of nations. 

May we enjoy peace and foster reconciliation and true freedom across the world. 

We make this and all our prayers through Christ, present with us to the end of time, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God forever and ever.


Many thanks to all who were involved in any way in last Sunday’s celebration of Confirmation and First Holy Communion. A whole team of people made it a very special day for the boys and girls both in the Church and in the Hall.  The boys and girls themselves were a great credit to themselves and to their families.

With every best wish and blessing

to you, your families and those

who are dear to you

Monsignor Tony

Glory be to the Father,

And to the Son,

And to the Holy Spirit,

As it was in the beginning,

Is now

And shall be evermore.
