The St Nicholas Care Fund/Pastoral Care Trust is our own special charity. It was founded by the late Cardinal Winning (as he put it) “to do at home what SCIAF does overseas”.

Last year parishioners raised the magnificent total of just over £57,000 mostly through the annual Caring Sunday collection in December. This year the need to help those in our midst who are suffering is greater than ever.

Canon Gerry Tartaglia, Parish Priest of Our Holy Redeemer and St Margaret's, said: “The St Nicholas Care Fund grant to our youth project (pictured above) enabled us to develop and deliver a summer Youth Camp for 30 young people aged 12-17 free of charge. The camp sessions allowed them to speak out and verbalise their feelings about isolation and fears for the future. This resulted in considerable support and restoration of confidence. It was also a huge amount of fun!

"Parents would not necessarily be able to afford to pay for a camp so the investment in these children, thanks to the grant from the care fund, lets them know that we care for them.”

And although the method of raising money will be different this year, we are confident that parishioners will respond with their customary generosity.

Your generous donations will make it possible for us to continue to offer grants where they are most needed and to support people and communities recover and rebuild as restrictions are lifted and we adjust to a life in a post Covid 19 world.

The St Andrew’s Foundation for Catholic Teacher Education is launching a brand new blog called The Cloisters. The aim of the blog is to stimulate discussion, debate and collaboration in the area of Catholic religious education, and Catholic education more widely.

The editorial team consists of Dr Roisín Coll, Director of the St Andrew’s Foundation, Anna Blackman, lecturer in Catholic Education and Fr Stephen Reilly. They invite contributions to the blog from academics in Scotland and beyond, teachers, alumni, students, parents, clergy, and all interested in the mission of Catholic education.

The address of the blog is https://thecloisters.blog

There you will find the opening editorial blog, and instructions regarding how to submit a blog and comment.

“Let me ask you a question. Do you think that this pandemic will make people more likely or less likely to hear the message of Advent? Do you think people will be more likely to look for the coming of the Saviour in their lives or less likely? Do you think that the pandemic has made people sense their fragility, lack of being in control, and even mortality, such that it may make them more receptive to the message of Advent to prepare for the unexpected coming of the Lord into their lives?”

Archbishop Philip’s reflection for the start of Advent offers plenty of food for thought. Read his full text here:

In a far-reaching reflection this week, Archbishop Philip considers the new pandemic restrictions, our duty to live with charity and solidarity during this period, and our final judgement by Christ the King: "Two things make me hopeful for our eternal destiny … I have never met anyone without a scrap of love and charity in their heart. Secondly, the Church has never said that any individual person is in hell. Jesus is the one who has the authority and the power to look into our souls and find there the love that will permit us to enter eternal life.

The First Minister has announced that the Archdiocese of Glasgow, with the exception of parishes in Argyll & Bute (Cardross, Helensburgh, and Rosneath/Arrochar), will move into Level 4 of COVID 19 restrictions from 6pm on Friday for a period of 3 weeks.

The main points for parishes and parishioners are as follows:

Technology offers us the possibility of assisting at Mass even when we cannot be physically present.

Even though it is now possible to celebrate Mass with a congregation once more, strict limits mean not all who would wish to go to Mass can find a place. Therefore parishes will continue to reach out through digital means to those who cannot come to church.

Parishes offering live stream liturgies are as follows:
