20th Sunday of the Year - Year C

Festival Mass Today

Today at the 12 noon Mass we welcome Cardinal Nichols, the Lord Provost and members of the City Council and Diplomatic Corps, as well as James MacMillan – the renowned composer. We are also delighted that The Sixteen will be singing at this Mass. I know you will make them very welcome.

Disabled Parking

We are currently in discussion with the Council about the provision of Disabled Parking for Mass goers. If you have a disabled badge and you use your car to come to Mass, it is imperative that you fill out one of the forms at the back of the Church and return it to the Cathedral Office as soon as possible.

Catholic Voting Rights on the Education Committee

This Thursday the City of Edinburgh Council will vote on the Green Party motion to remove the right to vote from the Church Representative on the Education Committee. The Church will be making a special deputation before the Council asking them to vote against this motion. There will also be a small peaceful demonstration outside the Council Chamber. If you would like to join this demonstration, please contact Prof. Tom Gallagher at

God bless you all,

Fr Patrick, Fr Jamie, Sr. Mary Simone and Deacon Peter
