St. Andrews Day – Next Friday
Next Friday, His Grace the Archbishop will celebrate Mass in the Cathedral at 12.45 to celebrate our National Patron. Also, to note that the relics of St. Andrew (which normally live in the St. Andrews altar) are on loan next week and will be displayed in the Scottish Parliament on Thursday.
Fabric Matters in the Cathedral
Just to let you know that we have now replaced the third boiler for the Cathedral at a cost of £11,000. The CCTV is our next project and will happen in January next year. In the meantime, we have just been told that the humidifiers in the organ will need to be renewed at a cost of £4000. So, it’s all go on the fabric front! Many thanks to the small number of people who have handed in donations towards these costs over the last weeks. If you think you might be able to help with a donation towards the ongoing fabric repairs in the Cathedral please do speak either to me or to Caroline in the Finance office.
Archbishop’s Advent Catechesis – Every Sunday in Advent
The Archbishop is again inviting all young Adults in the Diocese to join him at 5pm on the Sundays of Advent at the Gillis Centre. Each week the Archbishop will lead a discussion which will be followed by a period of prayer before the Blessed Sacrament and and pizza!
God bless you all,
Fr Patrick, Fr Jamie, Deacon Peter and Sister Mary Simone.
