The Pilgrimage of Saint Therese around our country and diocese was a resounding success and a source of many blessings and consolations for all those who came to venerate her relics or prayed in spirit with them. Could we thank the national organisers, our diocesan events team and office staff, Fr. Paul Brady, our parish clergy and religious, especially the Little Sisters, Canons Tom Boyle and Oliver Freney and the parishioners, officers and ministries in Saint Mary’s and the Cathedral, Mgr. Carlin and the diocesan choir, our diocesan schools and organisations, and all those who gave so generously of their time, talent and services. All those who experienced the joy of St. Therese among us are grateful to those whose hard work made this pilgrimage so fruitful.

Today we welcome Fr. Peter Walters from the charity: “Let the children live” He will tell you more about his charity. You are welcome to support his charity as you leave the church.

Special Collection 21st/22nd September: We remember our Sick & Retired Priests of the diocese with great love and affection. We have fifteen retired priests, still active in prayer and witness: three abroad, three in parish presbyteries, three in the Little Sisters Home and six in personal residences. We thank God for the gift of these priests and keep them in our prayers. In 2018 our three special collections and Friends Campaign raised £63,060, which represents 52% of our expenditure of £122,357. i.e. a shortfall of £59,297, which was met by the Sick & Retired Priests Investment income.

Fundraiser in St. Mirin’s Cathedral Hall: There will be rolls and sausage, tea, coffee and snacks being sold after the 10am and 12noon masses - Sunday 13th October. There will also be a raffle. All money raised will go to ‘Renfrewshire Carers Centre’, a charity which helps families look after their loved ones.
