Dear All,
As you may have seen the First Minister has announced that all of Scotland will move to Level 0 on Monday 19thJuly.
The main effects of this for churches is that we can move to 1m distancing between household groups from that date, which will be good news for larger parishes / smaller churches where numbers are restricted by the 2m distancing currently in force.
For parishes currently in Level 2, such as the City of Glasgow, this also means that we can begin congregational singing from Monday 19thJuly (albeit only from behind masks!).
The maximum attendance at weddings and funerals will rise to 200 from Monday 19thJuly, although in most churches a lower limit will be required due to how many we can safely fit in at 1m distancing and how many we can realistically cope with in terms of stewarding, name checking, etc. People organising weddings and funerals may just assume its 200 everywhere so you’ll need to be careful to communicate the actual limit in your church.
There may also be changes that affect halls, etc. – you can check at
Remember that we must still collect names and phone numbers and all those not exempt must still wear face coverings in church.
With best wishes
These words are engraved on the bell which is used to start the entrance procession for the Mass,
located just beside the 8th Station of the Cross and it is translated:
'The one who touches me hears my voice.'
 Prayer to St. Roch
O God, who promised Saint Roch by an angel,
That all who have recourse to him should
Have nothing to fear from illness and disease.
Grant, we beseech you, that through his
Intercession, we may be delivered from all dangers of soul
And body. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen
(Cf. St. Roch’s Prayer book) To be prayed at all parish Masses
Our Father … Hail Mary… Glory be…
Prayer to St. Michael he Archangel
St. Michael Archangel defend us in the day of battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil; may God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl through the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen
