Fire Cloud: Stay with Me
A dramatic presentation of the passion of Jesus Christ as seen
through the eyes of his friends and loved ones. The gospel
accounts of the passion are brought to life in ‘Stay with Me’
through music and dramatic narration. We hear from Mary the
Mother of Christ, the apostles Peter and Judas, the penitent
thief and the woman who stayed close to Christ throughout
His passion. Each voice in this creative reflection offers a unique
perspective on the person of Christ and their relationship to Him
and the faith He taught. The representation of each character is
interwoven with questions that will encourage parishioners to
examine their conscience and reflect on their own relationship to
 Jesus Christ during Lent. ‘Stay with Me’ presents the passion
with imaginative use of environment and lighting. This is a
contemporary reflection for Catholic parishes that will help
parishioners relate to the Passion in a new way. This penitential
experience will also prepare people for the sacrament of
Reconciliation. This takes place
today, Sunday 24th March at 5 pm.

Special Collection - SCIAF & St. Mirin’s Fund 51 March:
The proceeds of this collection are divided 75% to SCIAF
and 25% to our new St Mirin’s Fund. SCIAF is the official aid
and international development charity of the Catholic Church
in Scotland. It works in sixteen countries across Asia, Africa
and Latin America to help the poorest in the world, regardless
of religion, to work their way out of poverty. The St. Mirin’s Fund
awards small grants for good causes that promote the Kingdom
of God among us, with special consideration to: children and
young people, the elderly, those with disabilities and special
needs, or suffering from poverty, mental illness, homelessness
or refugees. In 2017 this collection for SCIAF and the St. Mirin
Fund raised £28,013.

Your prayers are requested for the poor suffering People of
Southern Africa: Cyclone Idai has devastated the Mozambican
city of Beira and turned it into an inland lake. The city of 500,000
 people is at the epi centre of one of the
worst natural disasters
to hit southern Africa in decades. Mozambique, Malawi, and
Zimbabwe are still coming to terms with the immediate impact
and aftermath of the storm, a week after it made landfall on
southeast Africa’s coast, ripping through the region at speeds
up to 194 Km (120 miles) an hour. An estimated 1,6 million
people are believed
to be affected, towns and villages remain
 submerged, and the death toll in the three countries has
surpassed 500.

We pray for the sick of our parish, for those who have died recently:
Grace Gildea,  James McClure,  Stephen Farrell,  Maureen Renni.
We pray for the anniversaries of: Jackie Nuttini,  
Patrick Gallagher,  James & Mary Taggart.
Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord.
