New Movements Information Day
Today we are hosting an information day for some of the Movements active in the Diocese. Representatives from 7 new movements (New Dawn, The Neo-Catechumenate, Couples for Christ, Faith, Focolare, Comunione & Liberazione & Schoenstatt) will be in the Cathedral Hall all day to showcase their wonderful apostolate in the Church and to answer any questions. Please drop in to see what they are offering.
Syrian Voices Choir – Concert this Wednesday at 7pm
‘The Welcoming’ is a charity set up to welcome people who have arrived in Scotland under difficult circumstances. On Wednesday at 7pm, we will jointly host a fundraiser featuring the Syrian Voices Choir, who will sing songs from their homeland. 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
Next Sunday sees the beginning of Advent and our preparation for the great feast of Christmas. In the leaflet you have been given today you will see the various extra activities we have planned for Advent. Please take a copy away with you and think about how you and your family are going to prepare spiritually for Christmas.
Archbishop’s Youth Initiative
The Archbishop is launching a new youth initiative for the whole Archdiocese this coming Advent. On each of the Fridays of Advent, he will gather with the youth of the diocese here at the Cathedral at 7pm to offer catechesis, prayer and social time together. It promises to be a great new way of meeting Christ and meeting others interested in their faith, so if you’re between 16-29, keep your Fridays in Advent free.
God bless you all this week, Fr Patrick, Fr Nick, Deacon Peter and Sr Mary Cora
