Farewell to Sr Mary Julian and Welcome to Sr. Mary Cora

As you know, after a year working here in the Parish, Sr. Mary Julian will leave us this Friday to return to Australia to take up an academic post as a Lecturer in Philosophy. Her short sojorn here with us has been a great blessing for the parish and we wish her well as she begins this new stage of her life. We will miss her very much and hope that one day she will at least return to visit us again. On Tuesday, Sr. Mary Cora will arrive to take over from Sr. Mary Julian. I know that you will all make her very welcome. 

The Red Mass at 12noon at the Cathedral

At 12 noon in the Cathedral today we will welcome members of the legal profession to the annual Red Mass in which we ask for God’s assistance for all those who administer the justice sytem in our country. The Mass will be celebrated by His Excellency, Archbishop Edward Adams, Apostolic Nuncio to Great Britain who is on his first visit to Edinburgh since his appointment. 

Parish Pilgrimage to Rome, 11-15th June 2018

As many of you will know, our own Patrick Harrigan will be ordained to the Diaconate next year on Wednesday 13th June. A number of people have asked if there will be a parish trip to Rome for the ordination and so we have been in touch with Alba Tours who have given us a quote of approx. £530 (B&B) for a 5 day pilgrimage staying in a hotel right next to St. Peter’s. Myself and Fr. Nick will definitely be going – so if you would like to join us and support Patrick at the wonderful moment in his life and in the life of the Diocese, please sign up on the list at the back of the Church. There is no commitment involved at this stage – but we need to have an indication of possible interest.

Are you thinking of becoming a Catholic?

If you have been thinking about becoming Catholic for a long time, or even just for a short time, now might be the moment to take a first step? If you would like to know more about the faith – why not come along to the Cathedral RCIA group which meets every Tuesday at 7.30pm in the Parish Rooms at 63 York Place. There is no commitment involved at this stage. If you would like to know more please be in touch with Sr Mary Julian either by calling the number below or by dropping an email to: cathedralhouse@stmaryscathedral.co.uk All are welcome!
