We are living in difficult times ourselves. The world’s poor and victims of war are in great difficulty too. As Christians, we must still help the vulnerable anywhere in the world. Today is SCIAF Sunday. SCIAF is the official Aid Agency of the Catholic Church in Scotland. This year SCIAF is supporting 4,000 women who have suffered sexual violence during the war in Congo.

Normally, there would have been a Second Collection during Mass today for SCIAF’s work. However, this afternoon the SCIAF Office open for telephone donations from 10am-3pm. Their number is 0141 354 5555.
