There will be another opportunity at today’s mass to do so.
‘Companions on the Journey’
the pilgrimage of faith we take together in strengthening and fostering a synodal Church towards the Synod of 2023.
Canon Tom invites the parish to listen to what the Holy Spirit is saying to us here in our parish. He proposes the following outline
Monday 15th November and Wednesday 17th November setting up faith sharing groups to meet twice during the beginning of Advent. Folk can sign up then and on Sunday 21st November.
Weeks beginning 22nd and 29th November 1st Meeting of groups
Weeks beginning 6th and 13th December 2nd meeting of groups
Contacting Canon Tom by Email
Could all parishioners please use the parish email address when emailing Canon Tom?
or obtainable through the website.
From the beginning of November, Canon Tom will no longer reply to emails sent to his personal email account.
Blessing of graves during November
Canon Tom is happy to bless anyone’s grace during November (or at any time).
He proposes Sunday 21st November after the 11 am mass (weather permitting) for a short service in Crieff Cemetery followed by the blessing of graves.
Lists are now available for your beloved deceased family, friends, and parishioners.
We are organising a night out for the men of the parish on Friday 12th November in the evening. We plan to go Ten Pin Bowling in Stirling. This will be subsided by the parish and transport will be shared.
If you are interested, please contact Canon Tom.
Social around St Andrew’s Day
Could we perhaps have an informal social on Friday or Saturday before St Andrew’s Day (26th or 27th) in the church hall? Folk could bring what they want to eat, and the parish will put on a glass of wine, soft drink, or whisky and some shortbread.
Please pray for
The success of COP 26 and
the repose of the souls of Sadie Cramb, John Chapman, and all the faithful departed.
