I have noticed that the least attended Masses are those at St. Matthew’s. If you are able to travel I would encourage you to think about going to St. Matthew’s Church which has the greater capacity of the two churches, this will also mean that those unable to travel and who live in Kinross will have an opportunity to attend in St. James’. We are one community of faith and so it would be good if parishioners from the Kinross area would consider travelling to take up spaces at St. Matthew’s, it will mean that you will have more of a likelihood of securing a place at Holy Mass when there is greater demand.
God bless you, and I look forward to seeing you again soon at Holy Mass,
Fr. Martin Pletts
