Parish Day out to St Andrews on Saturday 15 June. After Morning Mass, two coaches with 82 people of all ages travelled to wonderful thee wonderful town of St Andrews. A place steeped in cultural and religious history. On arrival the local parish priest led us in a service with the relic of St. Andrew. After discovering the great ancient sites, a visit to the beach, coffee shops, and of course the shops we headed south to Burntisland. At The Bay hotel we enjoyed a very delicious meal, wonderful service and spectacular views. We returned home at 8pm all very pleasantly tired!

A BIG Thank you!

As 2019 draws to a close, we can look back as a Parish Community to many moments of grace. There are so many to be thanked! To name the various groups risks forgetting the generous and dedicated individuals behind them, without whom the parish would not look as it does, nor would the work of the parish continue to progress. Our sacristans give of themselves with dedication & generosity; we are deeply indebted to them. The Ministers of the Word, the Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion & the Altar Servers ensure that the sacred liturgy is celebrated with dignity and good order. Likewise, the Choir and Organists help us to ‘pray twice’, raising our minds, hearts and voices to God, whose praise is our joy. The holiness of the Sanctuary, and side altars is shown forth by the beautiful work daily, weekly in the altar linens, flowers and more. For the drivers of the minibus who bring parishioners to weekly Mass and those who maintain the minibus and for those who provide hospitality in the hall we thank. Again and again one meets people who remark at the care with which the chapel is kept clean and maintained. For this we are greatly indebted to the cleaners. We also appreciate the great work of our gardeners. To circulate, collect and deposit baskets is an unglamorous but very necessary thing, as is the task of counting, sorting & banking the offerings taken up, not forgetting all our dedicated Parish Draw members. We thank these men & women for stepping up to ensure these tasks are carried out efficiently & quickly. We need more help! Please volunteer. See Fr Daniel. Without the backup of the parish volunteers it would be impossible for this parish to function as it does and the priests are very grateful to all those who help in any

Senior Citizens Christmas Lunch

“Awareness and Safety in our Catholic Communities”

Volunteering to work in the Parish Community is a wonderful expression of Christian commitment, and is essential to the running of our many and varied groups. Some of this work involves working closely with children and young people, or with adults at risk, and imposes extra responsibilities on us all.
