THANK YOU to everyone who has converted their cash giving to a standing order recently. This really helps the parish now, and in the future. Did you know that less than one third of the regular Parish contributions come from direct payments to the bank? Please consider setting up a Standing Order: Sort Code: 83-06-08, Account Number: 10402355, Account Name: Archdiocese of St. Andrews and Edinburgh, St. Columba’s Parish.
Going into Hospital?
Don’t forget to let the hospital know that you’re a Catholic. For the Royal Infirmary leave a message at the Chaplaincy Centre for the Revd Duncan McLaren. This means you’ll be on the lists of patients to whom Eucharistic Ministers bring Holy Communion
