Changes to the Weekly Schedule
While we have a number of visiting priests here, I have decided to expand our weekly schedule to include daily confessions at in the Cathedral after the 12.45pm Mass and daily Mass at Ravelston at 9.30am. This new schedule will start next Monday, 20th May.
Today is World Day for Prayer for Vocations
Today the Church celebrates Good Shepherd Sunday, when we are encouraged to pray for vocations to the priesthood and the religious life. Let us pray that many more young people will respond to the call of the Lord by dedicating their lives to the service of the Gospel.
Meeting About Sunday Parking Charges – Today at 2.30pm
Two years ago, you may remember, Edinburgh City Council put forward proposals to introduce all day parking restrictions on Sundays in the city centre. Such proposal would have had a disastrous impact on City Centre Churches and so all the Churches got together and successfully campaigned to get the proposals dropped. Unfortunately, the Council has now re-introduced proposals for Sunday parking charges and restrictions. A meeting has been called of all the city centre churches to discuss this issue and address what action needs to be taken by the churches working together. The meeting will take place at the Lauriston Hall at 2.30pm today.
God bless you all,
Fr Patrick, Fr Jamie, Sr. Mary Simone and Deacon Peter
