PARISH WEEKLY ENVELOPES

Parish records for organising the distribution of the new boxes of weekly envelopes are being currently updated.

If you do not have envelopes and wish to receive a box or if you have changed your address during the past year please advise the Parish Office as soon as possible. We ask that all wage earners please consider contributing to the parish by having their own personal box of envelopes.

STATIONS OF THE CROSS

During Lent we encourage parishioners to visit any of the churches and to pray the 14 Stations of the Cross. Booklets with reflections on the Way of the Cross will be available and you are asked to please return them to the box provided so others may use them.

Paul Collins, Drummullan and Lavey,
