The Scottish Catholic Youth Service are organising a national youth pilgrimage to St Andrews on Saturday 31 August 2019 (16-30 year olds). It will be led by Archbishop Cushley and will include Holy Mass in the grounds of the cathedral at 3.00pm. Please see the poster at the back of the church for further details if you wish to sign up. We are looking for a few volunteer parishioners to help with the hospitality arrangements for this, especially as Fr Galbraith has a wedding that day in St Salvator’s. If you are able to help with arrivals, hospitality etc, please let us know by email or note to the parish office.
On 1 September 2018 Archbishop Cushley launched the Guild of St Cuthbert, a new group for altar servers in the Archdiocese. All altar servers are welcome to join. The enrolment for the new guild will take place at the Altar Servers’ Day on Saturday 21 September at the Gillis Centre, Edinburgh (11am-3pm), at which altar servers will be presented with their medals. To be enrolled in the scheme, altar servers are asked to: 1) serve at 10 Sunday Masses; 2) attend a practice/training session in their parish; 3) write a short reflection on altar serving. Enrolment forms are available at the back of the church.
