Parish Prayer Ministry

Church life may not feel "normal" but there are still people praying for you as we navigate our way through these times.  We not only have a dedicated e mail address prayerpetitions2020@gmail.com to take your requests, but also now a phone line so you can text petitions if you wish. The number is 0798 567 4053. If you would like someone to pray with you, a prayer minister  will be available on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 6.30pm and 7,30pm on this number for you to speak to.

Donations to Food Bank

Thank you for your generosity in giving for the Food Bank.  Our instructions before the full lockdown was to leave your donations inside the door of the church.  This is no longer possible.  We would now ask that all donations for the Food Bank be left at  the collection point in Morrison’s.

Diocesan Counselling Service for Catholics Married in the Catholic Church

The Marriage Counselling service for Paisley Diocese is approaching the end of it’s first year!  We’d like to remind you that professionals working in this area (and evidence based studies) all give the same message – “don’t leave it too late, get along to discuss professional help if your difficulties are not going away”. The first session is a chance for you to meet with the counsellor and then go away and decide if it might work for you as a couple.  To see the testimonials of some couples who have used the service please visit https://rcdop.org.uk/marriage-counselling-service-1   Or contact the counsellor directly for a chat on 01786 469939 or send a brief email to she.dowds@gmail.com   There are posters about the service in your church and your parish priest can also give you the necessary contact details.
