The Bishops of Scotland have written a Pastoral Letter for Advent urging the return to Sunday Mass this Christmas.  The Bishops note that the Covid situation remains fluid. They write: "We have often been asked about reinstating the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holydays of obligation. In our fluid situation, this is not an easy judgment to make. Thanks, however, to the effort and good sense of so many, our churches have proven to be safe places. So, saving any serious worsening of the situation, we believe that Christmastide provides an opportune moment to restore the obligation."

The full text of the Pastoral Letter follows:

It is with sorrow that we announce the death of Fr Christopher Gilfedder, former Parish Priest of St Gabriel's, Merrylee and Pilgrimage Director and Chaplain to the Lourdes Hospitalité for many many years.

One pilgrim recalled him thus: "He was very faithful and could be found every morning down at the hospital where his lovely smile lit up our day..."

Funeral arrangements will be announced in due course.

Requiescat in pace.

The Blessing of the Crib with Civic and Church Leaders will take place at George Square, Glasgow on Wednesday 1st December 2021 at 6.30 pm Music from 6.15 pm from the Alba Brass Band and children of St Anne’s Primary School, Dennistoun

The Catholic Church in Glasgow is issuing an extraordinary appeal during the month of November to anyone who may have been affected by any kind of abuse at the hands of clergy or church officials … ‘tell us where we went wrong and how we can do better’.

During the designated month, The Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCEI) is conducting an external, independent review of the Archdiocese of Glasgow to hear from people with first-hand experience of how the Archdiocese has responded to reports of abuse.

Social distancing indoors has now ended and there is no obligation to keep 1m distance between household groups. For those who are still wary about being too close, one side of the cathedral has been reserved for social distancing. It is still essential to provide track and trace details, wear face masks and sanitise hands.
