Return to Mass
On the morning of Friday March 26, the beginning of Holy Week and with absolutely no fanfare whatsoever, our churches were freed from the darkness of lockdown into the light of God’s Word with the eagerly awaited resumption of public worship.
Make the cross count … that’s the appeal of Scotland’s bishops ahead of the elections taking place on May 6.
Archbishop Conti found himself once more offering the Mass of Chrism this year following the death of Archbishop Tartaglia.
The current emergency means our churches have had to close, but costs remain and some parishes are in a difficult situation. If your own circumstances allow it, please consider helping us by donating £5 during this worrying time. The Archdiocese has set up a system whereby you can simply text RCARCHGLA to 70085 to donate £5. Please share this emergency donation option with others, especially those who may be anxious because they normally contribute to their parish through collection envelopes. Those who use collection envelopes are asked to continue to place donations in these and deliver them to the local parish after the emergency has passed.
