Syrian Voices Choir
‘The Welcoming’ is a charity set up to welcome people who have arrived in Scotland under difficult circumstances.

There will also be the opportunity to sample some traditional Syrian food. You can get tickets on the door (£10, £5 conc.) or online at thewelcoming.org/newscotscelebration
Pope Francis Faith Award
As part of the Pope Francis Faith Award, which is open to children in P6 and 7, St Mary’s Primary will from now on be helping to organise the 9am Mass once a month during term time. This initiative will begin next week when our Pope Francis Award children will be involved in providing music, readers and other ministries during the 9am Mass.
In case you hadn’t noticed (!) Advent is once again nearly upon us. So just a reminder that again this year we will be having our special Advent Candlelit Masses every Monday of Advent at 7pm in the Cathedral. Amidst all the business of the pre-Christmas rush, these Masses are an ideal way for you and your families to prepare for Christmas. Please put them in your diaries now and try to keep Monday evenings free for our spiritual preparation.
God bless you and your families this week, Fr Patrick, Fr Nick, Deacon Peter and Sr Mary Cora
