Diocese of Paisley
As you hopefully know by now the Bishops of Scotland have decide to stop all public worship including Sunday Masses for the foreseeable future. Yet, at this time, it is even more necessary that we pray for a solution to this crisis.
Fr Berry has asked that, on Sunday morning and every morning during the week at 10am when there would usually be our Mass, we privately say the rosary. That we ask Our Lady, Health of the Sick, to implore her Son to intervene and bring this virus to a swift end.
May Mary Our Mother keep us united to her Son and in the faith family we are so privileged to experience.
Each morning at 10am can we unite by saying the Rosary

In an effort to continue the practice of our faith in these trying times, I would like to invite you to join us online for daily Mass.

Hospital Chaplains will still be attending IRH but under strict instructions from the staff.
Please remind the people that if they wish their patient-relative to be attended by a priest in an emergency they must ensure that the staff on the ward know that their relative is a catholic and would want the priest in an emergency. Religion is not asked as routine now on admission and families must give that information to staff.Mgr Gallagher
