The Holy Bible
Fr. Ninian and the parishioners of St. Pius X, bid you a hearty welcome to our parish website. As our site develops, in addition to parish activities, we hope to provide information pertinent to the development of our Catholic Faith. We thank you for your interest and look forward to your continued support. May God abundantly bless you and your loved ones.
Parish Priest's Absence
There will be no services this week as a result. Father returns on the Saturday 14th May for the 10:00 a.m. Holy Mass at St Pius X with St Peregrine devotions.
MESSAGE FROM THE BISHOPS OF SCOTLAND
Restoring the Sunday Obligation
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
The obligation for Catholics to celebrate Sunday as a Holy Day by gathering together for Mass will be restored from the First Sunday in Lent, Sunday 6th March. Given the easing of restrictions in every other walk of like, the Church looks forward to welcoming Catholics back to Holy Mass. As always, the obligation does not apply to those who are sick and their carers or to those aware of their greater vulnerability to the virus. May the continuing recovery of our country bring new hope to us all especially those who are ill, those who mourn loved ones, those who are apprehensive and those who have sustained us in so many ways throughout the Pandemic. We, the Bishops of Scotland, take this opportunity to thank our clergy and our parish volunteers for all their efforts. May our Lenten journey this year lead us to a renewed appreciation of our Catholic faith, of the celebration of the Eucharist and of the presence of the Risen Christ who is always at our side.
Bishop Hugh Gilbert President, Bishops’ Conference of Scotland
O Saving Victim opening wide the gates of heaven to man below. Our foes press on from every side, Your aid supply Your strength bestow.
St. Michael, the Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray.
