Apologies for the interruption in broadcast Masses over the last week. We think we have resolved the issues. Part of the problem, we suspect, is interference from mobile phones on the mobile router which we use, causing it to slow down. Mobile phones are very clever at automatically logging on to networks, and this may have contributed.
Our next Mass for children and young families is on Sunday October 2nd at 11 am
Many thanks to this group and all who visit the housebound and sick. There is a meeting of the Visitors’ Group at 7 pm on Tuesday 20th September in St Fillan’s Hall.
Scottish National Pilgrimage and the relics of St Bernadette 25th

The Mass to celebrate the National pilgrimage is on Sunday 25th September at 3 pm. The bus, FOR THOSE WHO HAVE PUT THEIR NAME DOWN, will leave at 1 pm from Ford Road (time TBC).

Benches in St Fillan’s
As some of you will be aware, the benches in St Fillan’s are being lovingly restored after the ravages of time and the recent cleaning regime prescribed during the pandemic. The cost of each bench being refurbished is around £340. If you would like to contribute to this, perhaps in memory of a loved one, please speak to Canon Tom. A plaque could be tastefully affixed to the bench.
Registration of all children for First Holy Communion and Confirmation
All parents of children who would be due to celebrate their First Holy Communion or Confirmation are asked to register their child with Canon Tom in writing (email or on paper with a contact) before the end of October of this year.

Parishioners are kindly reminded that this is not an open meeting for all parishioners just to turn up. Only members of the PPC who have been specifically asked by Canon Tom to serve are invited to attend this meeting.
