“Jesus, I trust in you!”

 

Kathleen, you will be missed by many…

After over half a century of daily attendance at Holy Cross Church (sometimes three times on a Sunday!), Kathleen Snell has finally parked her mobility scooter for the last time.

Since breaking her femur at the end of last year, Kathleen had struggled to cope with an independent life in her maisonette; and so this icon of Holy Cross, one time sacristan, but never quite retired, finally left for a new life at St Peters Care Home in Vauxhall with the Little Sisters of the Poor.

She will be missed by many…but will now have the joy of daily mass in the chapel and contentment with Our Lord in the Eucharist which she sorely missed. Best wishes Kathleen.

-Philip Quinton

 

Fr. Luke and Fr. Philip wish you and all yours a “Happy Easter” and joy, healthy and meaningful Eastertide!

 

Thank you for your help!

Parish Choir, Altar Servers, Readers, Flower Ladies, Sacristans, Cleaning Team, Disinfection Team, … ALL…

 

May they rest in peace.

We remember those who died recently in our prayers, especially Fr. Paul Sanders, Ted Morton, Rita Gomez, Nick Roche, Ann Teresa Firmo…

Sick or in hospital?

Please tell Fr Philip of anyone in hospital. Thank you for keeping in prayer all who are sick.

From Father Paul’s family

Fr Paul’s family would like to express their gratitude to the parish for all the arrangements connected with Fr Paul’s funeral.  It was a pity that only a relatively small number were permitted to be present in the church.  Nevertheless, a great many people watched through live-streaming and they would have been able to join in the responses, as well as adding to the lovely singing in the church.  Many Orders of Service booklets were printed and are available to those who were not able to be physically present.

It was a sad time for all concerned; for us, losing a brother or uncle; and for you all, losing such a wonderful, well-loved pastor.  We have been overwhelmed by all the beautiful contributions expressed in the Book of Remembrance.  They speak volumes of Fr Paul’s many kindnesses, his concerns for everyone and the friendly advice he always gave so readily.  The particularly beautiful floral ring and all of the floral tributes arranged in front of the church and also those attached to the railings speak eloquently of your love and affection for Fr Paul.  He would most definitely have loved the ‘red bus’.  So, thank you, everybody.

Our PP in Bearsden has agreed to say a Mass in thanksgiving for all that you have done to make the funeral a fitting and prayerful occasion.  May Fr Paul rest in peace.
