PLEASE READ THE MESSAGE BELOW ABOUT AN EMAIL SCAM.


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.

Three 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.

Dear Parishioners

Today, on Our Lady's Day, l celebrate Holy Mass 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.
