Of your charity, please pray for Fr Andrew Coleman who is seriously ill at this time and for his parishioners. Bishop Keenan has asked Fr Joe/Fr Jonathan to cover all Funeral Masses in St Peter’s, Glenburn in the meantime. This may cause an occasional change to our own schedules in St John's & St Thomas. Our Lady, Mother of the Clergy, pray for our priests.

Unveiling a statue of St Gianna Beretta Molla, Patron Saint of Unborn Children
Join the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children as we ask for St Gianna’s intercession for the pro-life movement in the UK. St Gianna was a 20th century wife, mother, and doctor, most often remembered for her sacrificial love for her unborn daughter. She is a patron for mothers, physicians, and unborn children. The unveiling of statue will take place on Thursday 28 April at 7pm followed by Holy Mass at 7:30pm, at Carfin Grotto.
We pray for those who have died recently, especially
June Cooper, Gill Hughes, Jean Meanan, Kevin McGinn, Tommy Montgomery, and Margaret Walters;
and for the Anniversaries of
John Donnelly, Owen Fitzpatrick, Jonathan Gilmour, Theresa Haggerty, Hugh Lynch, Andrew McLaughlin, Danny McLaughlin, and Ann Miller.
