One of Glasgow’s oldest priests has died. Fr Joseph Murphy passed away on 7 January last, he was in the loving care of Asborough Nursing Home, Milltown, Co. Kerry since August 2019.

His Requiem Mass took place in the rural village of Ballydesmond in County Cork and he was interred in the church grounds beside his late brother Fr Tom.

His nephew, Joe Murphy said: “He often spoke of the wonderful years he spent in the Sacred Heart Parish, Glasgow , and he instilled a love for his favourite team Glasgow Celtic in all of his nieces and nephews. He will be dearly missed by us all.”

To support the implementation of the Synod which Pope Francis has called for the whole Universal Church this year and next, a special website has been set up within the Archdiocese.

The new site will offer resources and ideas to help make the synod a reality in our own communities, offering testimonies from lay people and clergy within the Archdiocese.

Pope Francis has called a Synod of the whole Catholic Church to discern a new way of being Church in the modern world. The Greek root of the word we use for parish is "paroikia", which means sojourning. So parish is not meant to be a static concept but a moving reality. People on a journey, and when you are on a journey you talk, you listen and you learn. You meet new people and new experiences enrich your vision. The Pope is calling us to be more conscious of being people on the move, he is encouraging us to listen to each other but to the still quiet voice of the Spirit who speaks beyond what we say.

Of your charity, please pray for the repose of the soul of Father James Doherty, RIP who has died in the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice.

Fr Jim (or “big Jim” as he was affectionately known) was ordained in 1979 and served in Saint Peter’s, Partick; Saint Laurence’s Drumchapel; Our Lady and St Mark’s, Alexandria; St Robert Bellarmine, Pollok and Saint Vincent de Paul in Thornliebank.

He was appointed Parish Priest in Saint Vincent de Paul’s before taking ill with leukaemia. He eventually returned to ministry as Parish Priest in Saint Joachim’s, Carmyle.

Social distancing indoors has now ended and there is no obligation to keep 1m distance between household groups. For those who are still wary about being too close, one side of the cathedral has been reserved for social distancing. It is still essential to provide track and trace details, wear face masks and sanitise hands.
