I have just received communication from the Bishop to say that the Scottish Government has corrected what seems to have been a mistake/anomaly/misunderstanding.
So to clarify: our churches are closed with immediate effect, and are not to open again for public worship until further notice, therefore there will now be no Masses or devotions on Wednesday or Thursday of this week, nor for the foreseeable future.
Please pass on this information to your fellow parishioners as a matter of urgency.
My apologies to parishioners who were hoping to attend Holy Mass or devotions before the closure of the churches – this will now no longer be possible.
God bless you and keep you, and Our Lady and St. Joseph protect you,
Fr. Martin Pletts
