ADVANCE NOTICES:   Starting the week beginning 5th January, the weekday Mass time at St Kentigern’s will move to 9.30am.

On Sunday 12th January we will celebrate our Parish Patronal Feast of St Kentigern. There will only be one morning Mass at St Kentigern’s at 10.00am followed by a whole-parish Big Breakfast in the hall. There will be the usual 6pm Mass at St John’s on Saturday and also a 6pm Mass on the Sunday at St John’s. I do hope that many of you will come to celebrate the feast together.

Advent Devotions continue with candlelit Mass, Exposition and Sacrament of Reconciliation at 7pm on Monday 16th in St Kentigern’s and Monday 23d in St John’s.  There will also be a 7.00am Mass in St John’s on Thursdays. If you would like help getting to this Mass please tell Fr Jeremy.
