St Cadoc’s News Updates (that didn’t make it into the Newsletter)

Church Improvement Works
You will be aware that work on the new church roof has begun. With the main porch now inaccessible please access the church for weekday masses through the side entrance at the sacristy. For Saturday evening and Sunday masses the fire exit at the front of the church and the hall entrance should also be used. Now that the scaffold and builders compound are in place please park with consideration for others and ensure that children are not allowed to play in the church grounds or on/near the scaffold. In the event of an emergency the access points detailed above should be used in addition to the fire exits in the extension and the hall- both of which are clearly marked. Thank you for your patience while the work goes on to improve and future proof our church.  Should you have any questions or concerns please contact Julia on 07801286661.

Turin Shroud
Following the success of his recent talk in St Ninian’s High School Mr Henry Creechan has agreed to lead a presentation on the shroud of Turin believed by many to be the burial cloth of Jesus. He will give insights to the understanding of the Shroud and explain what many eminent scientists believe to be flaws in the Carbon Dating of the Shroud. There will be an opportunity to view a life size replica of the Shroud. The presentation takes place in the Parish Hall at 8pm on Wednesday 15th November.

Today’s Feast Day: San Giovanni Leonardi di Lucca

Today is the feast of San Giovanni Leonardi di Lucca or St John Leonardi.  San Giovanni was born in the 16th Century and is the Patron Saint of pharmacists.  In Glasgow, many people have family links to Lucca or closeby.  If you know anyone whose family come from Lucca or is a pharmacist, why not say a small prayer for them today?
