Some parishioners have received an email,
purportedly from Father Duncan, asking for money. THIS IS A
SCAM. Please do not give funds to the sender. Legitimate ways
to donate to the Church are by text-giving to the Diocese of
Galloway as shown below, Banker's
Order or sending a donation, ideally by cheque, to the Church's
postal address, shown above. Any method not mentioned on this
website is fraudulent.
funeral services have been arranged at gravesides in Ardrossan Cemetery.
All are for close family only. On Tuesday 7 April, there will be services
for Seamus Reilly at 10.00am and Pauline Greer at 2.00pm. John McLaughlin
will be interred on Friday 17 April at 1.00pm. The arrangements for
John Mullen, son of Betty Craig, will be posted when they are known.
May they all rest in peace.
In these difficult financial times, there is no obligation to
give to the Sunday Collection. If, however, you feel able to,
you can donate by text message to an account set up by the Diocese
of Galloway. It is not possible to nominate a particular parish
so all text-giving donations will be shared among parishes.
To donate, text to 70085 the word SUNDAY followed by the number
of pounds, from 1 to 20. For example, SUNDAY 5 to 70085 gives
£5. This message would cost £5 plus one standard
rate message charge. Thank you for all your commitment and support.

privately for the Parish and Annie and Andrew Murphy.
Our second 'touchstone' is Our Lady's Protection.
From the cross, Jesus gave us his Mother to be ours.
In every age - from the days before Pentecost until
today - the Church has been blessed through the
Mother of God interceding for us, from her being
close to us with her care and protection. Let us
renew our commitment to 'fly to her protection'.
I invite you to join with me in praying the Memorare
every day to commend, not only the Church, but also
our country - indeed the whole world - to the loving
care of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Please be assured
of my daily prayers for you and your family.
