The May edition of the Archdiocesan newspaper FLOURISH is now out. The new edition has features on how parishes are
using the internet to reach out to parishioners. There’s a special focus on vocations for the Archdiocese following the success of the recent BBC TV documentary Priest School. Don’t miss the the new Urbi et Orbi column by Vaticanista John L Allen and there is a special feature on art, poetry and prayers to Our Lady to mark the month of May.

CORONA VIRUS (COVID-19)
Dear parishioners of Christ The King,
Welcome to our parish website, please check regularly as information, prayers and links to relevant issues will be updated during this Covid-19 period.
You will have heard by now that public Masses and acts of worship are suspended in the Archdiocese of Glasgow for an indefinite period. Now that the decision has been taken I would like to address some practical issues with you:
- The Church is CLOSED.
- Mass be offered by the Priest daily in private, for salvation of the World, the spread of the Gospel and the needs of the people of God.
- Confession – contact the chapel house.
- We urge everyone to follow public health advice.
It needs saying that this will hit us financially. Our running costs are high, so any donations are welcome; please see further details in our ‘News’ section.
Let us pray for one another and for our World.
Our Lady, Health of the Sick Pray for us.
Fr Peter Gallacher
