BOOKING FOR MASS WILL NOT BE REQUIRED AFTER THIS SUNDAY, 18th JULY
Because Scotland moves to Level Zero for Covid restrictions from Monday 19th July, the congregation can from then on simply turn up for any Service they wish. This does NOT mean that there are no restrictions so please click here to see the Bulletin for Sunday 18th July for details. In particular face masks are still required and every second pew will be closed off to ensure 1 metre social distances between households which is still necessary. To book for Sunday 18th click here.
The parish is in the diocese of Motherwell and is a merger of two parishes.
St. Mark’s parish was founded in 1956 and the church was formally opened in 1961 by Bishop James Scanlan.
St Anthony’s parish was established in 1965 and the church was formally opened in 1970 by Bishop Francis Thomson.
Message from Father Dougan, Parish Priest
Church Closures & Reopening
It is a pleasure to continue the process of reopening our churches. This is still a gradual process and we have to face the fact that it will still be a while before things go back to the way they were before. In the meantime, please note that the obligation to attend Mass on a Sunday continues to be suspended. There will continue to be the option of following Mass and other services online.
Our two churches will open for Sunday and weekday Masses as announced in the weekly bulletin.
Please continue to pray for each other, for the most vulnerable, and for those seeking to navigate a way out of this crisis.
