“Try Praying” Booklet
You will probably have seen the “Try Praying” advertisement on the side of the buses this year. They refer to a little booklet which has been produced by the Edinburgh Churches and which is aimed at people who don’t have any religious affiliation. We are going to give everyone a copy of the booklet this week after Mass – the idea being that you think of someone you know who might be interested and give it to them. It is a good little booklet, easy to read, and aimed at people who don’t come to Church. Try to think of a suitable person and sow the seed!
