Hall Help!  
The hall provides a vital source of income which helps pay for maintenance work in the parish. It is important that we keep the hall open and I am therefore appealing for more people to come forward and help. Please speak to Fr Anthony or Margaret McCallion. “Many Hands make Light Work!”

This replaces the 1995 Directive and will be followed in due course by a new UK Data Protection Act. This new Regulation has significant implications for our parish and other parishes in the Archdiocese and this we look out for in due time.
Annual Gathering for Parents: 18th August in St. Charles’, Paisley
This gathering is organised and run by the Scottish Catholic Education Service Parent Group. In this historic year, as we mark the centenary of our Catholic schools being run in partnership with local government, and when we see the introduction of a new Education Bill into law, it is more important than ever to promote the role of parents as the first educators of their children. This one-day event gathers parents from across all of our Dioceses and offers support, encouragement and the opportunity to talk with other parents about the challenges and joys of sharing faith with children and young people in today’s world. The event is free, but in order to organise catering and resources we would ask that you book a place by phoning SCES on 0141 556 4727 OR emailing
