New Gift Aid Envelopes for 2018/19

To join the scheme, you need to be a tax payer then we are allowed to claim back 20% of your contributions from taxman. If you would like to find out more see Fr Anthony.
Divine Mercy Sunday
Divine Mercy Sunday falls on the first Sunday after Easter as directed by Pope John Paul II. This year it is 8th April. We will have a Holy Hour for Divine Mercy in St Martin's at 2.30 -3.30pm on Sunday 8th April. This will include exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, an opportunity for confessions, veneration of the Divine Mercy image, the Chaplet and readings from Scripture and St Faustina's diary, concluding with Benediction.
Our parish community once again extend our sympathy and the support of our prayers to the family and friends of William Graham (Hillfoot Renton) whose funeral Mass and committal took place on Monday morning. May he rest in peace.
The Flourish (April Edition)
The April edition of The Flourishthe Archdiocesan newspaper is available. Please collect your copy from the back of the church.
Please remember to return the SCIAF WEE BOX as soon as possible to enable them benefit from the UK Government’s promise of doubling the amount raised.
Patient's Religious Declaration which a person when admitted to hospital, or a relative/friend, should give to ward-staff to ensure they can see a Catholic Chaplain. This can also be achieved through a verbal-request to staff. This is necessary due to the way confidentiality rules are applied in most hospitals. Please see notice board or website for further details.
