Feast of St John the Baptist, Sunday 23rd June 2019

In celebration of one of the two Patronal Feasts of our parish there will be a special Mass celebrated at 11.00am on Sunday 23rd June at St John’s to which all are warmly invited.  This is a great opportunity for people from both churches to come together for a whole-parish celebration.  The Mass will be followed by a celebratory BBQ to which all are welcome.  We extend a special invitation to our children who will have celebrated their first Holy Communion on 15th June (St Kentigern’s) and 22nd June (St John’s) to come to this Mass with their families and then to cut a Communion cake in the hall before enjoying the BBQ and Bouncy Castle.  If children wish to come to Mass in their Communion clothes that is encouraged but you might like to bring a change of clothes for the BBQ.

Please note that 11.00am will be the only morning Mass that Sunday but there will be Mass at St Kentigern’s in the evening.  The Mass schedule for 22/23 June will therefore be:
