This Weekend 5th/6th June Monthly Building Fund Collection
Next weekend Second Collection: Sick & Retired Priests
We remember our Sick & Retired Priests of the diocese with great love and affection. We have fourteen retired priests of our diocese, still active in prayer and witness: one living in Rome, two living in Chile, five in houses throughout the diocese, three in parish presbyteries and three at the Residence of the Little Sisters along with Bishop John Cunningham. We thank God for the gift of these priests and keep them in our prayers. You can donate easily to this collection by visiting our Diocesan website www.rcdop.org.uk and clicking on the ‘Online Parish Offertory’, if you are not attending in person at the weekend Masses. This allows you to donate to any of the causes or parishes of your choice. Many thanks
“This is my Body” Without the Eucharist there is no Church. Without priests, there is no Eucharist. Could God be inviting you to share in Jesus’s priesthood, offering your life with his for his people? Call Fr. Morrison on 0141 8895056 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
