Be fishers of men this Lent. By supporting SCIAF this Lent your Parish is helping families, like the Langs from Cambodia, who have been victims of illegal fishing. Let’s work together,
so poor Cambodians and other people in need around the world can survive and thrive. Lang said, “We want to say thank you to the people of Scotland who have provided this
support for us.” Your donations will be doubled by the UK Government.

Each day of Lent The Ignatian Spirituality Centre (ISC) in Glasgow is offering Bible readings, poems and other material for you to pray in your own home.
The material offered takes the shape of St Ignatius’ Spiritual Exercises.
Retreats are asked to sign up on line (www.lentretreat.uk) if they wish to complete the retreat which is free.
The ISC also suggest that those praying with material might like to meet weekly to introduce some of the themes of the retreat, share your journey and help you with your prayer.
This is not compulsory for the retreat but would help people get much more out of it. If you want to join a local group contact www.lentretreat.uk directly.
Visit the website to view the material and sign up at www.lentretreat.uk.
