        November is the month when we pray for all of the faithful departed, family, friends, brother Priests and Religious, and those with nobody to pray for them.

Bishop John invites you to join him in celebrating Mass at St Conval’s Cemetery, Barrhead on Sunday 2nd November at 2pm, to pray for the Holy Souls, but also to pray for the faithful and clergy who are buried in the Cemetery.
