Polish Celebration

At the 12 o’clock Mass on Sunday 4th November the Archbishop, accompanied by various Bishops from Poland, will unveil a Plaque in the Cathedral to mark the 100th anniversary of Poland regaining it’s independence and in thanksgiving for the hospitality shown by the Scottish people to the Polish government and military forces in exile. It will be a lovely event and I hope you will put the date in your diaries and join us to celebrate the deep friendship which exists between our two nations.

Stella Maris Mass

‘Stella Maris’ is the name by which many seafarers also know the Apostleship of the Sea. This is because ‘Stella Maris, Star of the Sea’, is an ancient title for Mary, the Mother of God, traditionally used by seafarers and others associated with the sea. Just as seafarers have traditionally depended on the stars for navigation, so they trust in the protection and guidance of Our Lady.

Apostleship of the Sea commemorates the feast of Our Lady Star of the Sea with special Masses for seafarers in the month of September and October. Bishop Stephen Robson, the Bishop of Dunkeld and patron of the Apostleship of the Sea, will celebrate this feast in the Cathedral at 7pm on Monday 24th of September. Mass will be followed by a reception in the Cathedral Cafe.

Organ Recital for the Feast of the Assumption

The Assumption is, as you know, our Patronal Feast here at the Cathedral. We will celebrate the feast as usual with a Pontifical Mass (i.e. with the Archbishop) at 12.45pm, but this year we will also celebrate with a short organ Recital by our new Organist Simon Leach after the 7pm evening Mass. The Recital will be entitled “In Praise of Mary” and will feature music dedicated to Our Lady over the centuries. It will be followed by a Champagne Reception (sic!) in the Café.

After the great success of our Welcoming Initiative during the Festival last year, we need new “welcomers” and we will collect names before and after Sunday Masses in July. If you think you could possibly help, please give your name, or speak to one of the priests, or contact the parish office. In addition, there will be a short meeting for all those involved on Saturday 28th July at 12noon. This was a great undertaking last year – please do help again this year if you can.

Sea Sunday 2018

Today the Church prays for all those who live and work at sea. The Apostleship of the Sea is the Church's maritime welfare agency which supports seafarers both practically and spiritually through its international network of chaplains and volunteers. Without your help it cannot continue its work, today, one of our parishioners will speak after Mass on the Apostolate of the Sea's mission, involving companionship, spiritual help and sometimes looking out for human trafficking on ships that dock on our shores.
