A plug-in used to generate tables (for mass days and times and rotas chiefly) has been withdrawn from service for security reasons. That means all past posts and pages containing tables will be broken. I will replace the offending plugin with straightforward HTML tables going forward and fix pages but not old posts

Faith Summertime 17th-20th July 2017

Ampleforth Abbey

Ampleforth Abbey

This year, as every year, Fr. Nick will be taking a group of our young people (aged 9-15) to Ampleforth Abbey for this wonderful event. Young people from different parishes attend this event which is a week of fun, in which our young people come to know a little bit more about their faith in an informal holiday atmosphere. The camp runs from 17-20 July and costs £160, though subsidies are available. If you would like to know more, or if you would like an application and consent form please see Fr Nick or Fr Patrick at the end of Mass.

Solemnity of Ss Peter & Paul – Holy Day of Obligation
Just a reminder that this Thursday is the Solemnity of Ss Peter & Paul and is a Holyday of Obligation, which means that all Catholics are obliged to attend Mass on Thursday.

Mass will be celebrated here at 7.30pm and Mass at the Cathedral will be at 8am, 10am and 12.45pm, so we look forward to seeing you during the week.

Fr. Martin Xavier Vazhyachira RIP

Please pray for the soul of Fr. Martin Xavier, the Administrator of St. John the Baptist in Corstorphine, who died suddenly during the week. Fr. Martin was a young man who had come here to Edinburgh to study. He was a good and much loved priest. Please pray for his soul, for his poor family and for the people of the parish in Corstorphine. May he rest in peace.
