St. Andrew’s Adoption and Foster Care: There are many children across Scotland who need stable, loving families to care for them on a long term or permanent basis. Their birth families are not able to provide the nurturing or safe environment that would allow them to flourish and become confident and well balanced adults.
Could you provide the stability and love these children deserve? Would you like to hear more about whether adopting or fostering a child could be an option for you?

The Gift Aid Envelopes for the new tax year are available from the back of the Church after Mass. These are for Parishioners who kindly Gift Aid their offering so that a tax reclaim can be made. Last tax year this came to £9034.11p. They have now come into effect. Old envelopes should no longer be used and should be destroyed. If you are a tax payer please consider gift aiding your offering.
Many thanks indeed to all who have made such great efforts to attend the Lenten, Holy Week and Easter Masses and services. Your efforts are much appreciated.
My grateful thanks go to all who have been involved in any way in helping us along the Lenten Journey and now to the celebration of the Resurrection. Many people have given of their time and talents to help in all sorts of ways. Their help is very much appreciated since, without their efforts, our liturgies would be the poorer. The Servers, Musicians, Readers, Eucharistic Ministers and Passkeepers have all played their part. Behind the scenes are the church cleaners, the flower arrangers, typist, sacristans, and those who look after us in the Hall after the Easter Masses. All this work is done in addition to home and family responsibilities. A very big thank you is due to every one of them for their efforts. Thank you also for the Easter cards and gifts. They are much appreciated.
With every best wish and Easter Blessing
To you, your families
and those who are dear to you
