“In defending the ability of human reason to know God, the Church is expressing her confidence in the possibility of speaking about him to all men and with all men, and therefore of dialogue with other religions, with philosophy and science, as well as with unbelievers and atheists. Since our knowledge of God is limited, our language about him is equally so. We can name God only by taking creatures as our starting point, and in accordance with our limited human ways of knowing and thinking. All creatures bear a certain resemblance to God, most especially man, created in the image and likeness of God. The manifold perfections of creatures their truth, their goodness, their beauty all reflect the infinite perfection of God. Consequently we can name God by taking his creatures perfections as our starting point, for from the greatness and beauty of created things comes a corresponding perception of their Creator . God transcends all creatures. We must therefore continually purify our language of everything in it that is limited, imagebound or imperfect, if we are not to confuse our image of God the inexpressible, the incomprehensible, the invisible, the ungraspable with our human representations. Our human words always fall short of the mystery of God.” Catechism of the Catholic Church §§39-42
Survive-MIVA – Today we welcome Deirdre O’Reilly from Survive-MIVA, a charity who provide vehicles to missionaries. She is going to make an appeal and then we will take up a collection for them. Please be generous in supporting them and please keep them in your prayers.
Renovations – there are a couple of unavoidable major projects happening soon that we should be aware of:
Under health safety laws we are no longer allowed to change the bulbs in the sanctuary lights without using contractors with proper certification for working at heights. Since the current bulbs need changed at least every year, this would make changing the bulbs prohibitively expensive, so we are changing to LED lights, which should last many years without needing changed. This work will also give us some more decorative options for lighting the sanctuary (rather than just on/off white light). This work was due to take place last Tuesday, it will now place this Tuesday coming.
Pieces of the concrete cross on the gable end of the church, above the boiler house, have become loose and have had to be removed. To avoid any possibility of pieces falling on passers-by, etc. our estates department has advised that the whole cross should be removed, and the space filled in. We do not have a date for this work but it will take place soon.
These works (which altogether will cost just under £4000) should be able to be paid for from our ordinary parish funds, but if you would like to contribute money towards them you can put extra money in the plate or give it to Father Gargaro.
Justice Peace Group – meets on Wednesday at 7.30pm in the hall – all welcome.
Meeting of Parish Pastoral Councils – from across the Deanery takes place on Monday 10 th October at 7pm in St Maria Goretti’s. All PPC members should attend if possible, so please keep the date in your diary.
Weekday Masses – please note that Mass on Monday will be at 9.30am, this is the Funeral Mass for James Downie, and Mass on Tuesday will be in Burnmouth Court at 10am.
World Porridge Day – the Justice and Peace group would like to invite you to join in Mary s Meals World Porridge Day . For many families the daily cup of phala porridge given to their children at school means the difference between living and surviving. Please join us for a Porridge Breakfast after Mass on Sunday 9th October (there will be toast too!). Have your porridge just as you like it with salt or sugar, fruit or seeds. Why not make a happy face on your bowl of porridge? Please give generously to this very worthwhile cause. There will be a donation box at the breakfast and a Mary s Meals porridge mug at the back of the church for anyone who can t manage to come down to the hall.
60 th Anniversary Concert– to mark the 60 th Anniversary of St Jude’s Church we are having a small concert of folk music in the hall, followed by a buffet, on Friday 4 th November. The music will be provided by the same band that played at the Fun Day. Tickets will be £5 per person, on sale in a couple of week’s time.

The parish of St Jude in Barlanark was founded in 1954 with Fr Martin Doherty as Parish Priest. The church was opened in 1956. Fr Doherty retired in 1982 and was replaced as Parish Priest by Fr Gus Hurley.
Wee Fr Hurley was replaced as Parish Priest by Big Fr Tom Hurley in 1989. Fr Allan Cameron took over from Fr Tom Hurley in 2000 and was Parish Priest until Oct 2013. Fr Paul Gargaro is the current parish priest.
The parish of Blessed John Ogilvie in Wellhouse was founded in 1957, with Fr Jeremiah Healy as Parish Priest. Fr Healy died before the final completion of the church in 1960. He was succeeded in 1960 by Rev Thomas Reilly, who remained until 1978.
Fr Reilly was heavily involved in the cause for the canonisation of John Ogilvie which took place in 1976. The miraculous cure of a parishioner, John Fagan, was the final miracle that led from Blessed John Ogilvie to Saint John Ogilvie, as the parish was then renamed.
Fr Reilly was replaced as parish priest by Fr Patrick Tobin, from 1978 until 1989. Fr Eamon Friel, served only two years (1989-1991) before Fr Peter Sweeney was appointed. Fr Sweeney served the parish for 10 years (1991-2001) before his untimely death.
Fr Joseph McNulty took over the parish after Fr Sweeney s death and served as parish priest until the parish was amalgamated with St Jude s to become the Parish of St Jude and St John Ogilvie (2 March 2008).
