 Today is the Feast of St Agnes who was martyred at the start of the Fourth Century and who sacrificed her life rather than submit to losing her chastity. On her Feast Day, the Pope blesses several lambs whose wool is then used to make the pallium which is a special cloak or scarf worn by certain archbishops and is a sign of their position.

Today, we pray for all those who are called by God. We remember those who will follow God as some cost or sacrifice. We pray for our priests and bishops that they will continue to be filled with the Holy Spirit as they lead us in faith.

The Feast of St Mungo is usually celebrated on 13 January but as this was a Sunday this year, the Feast has been moved to today.

He was the 6th century apostle of the Kingdom of Strathclyde in Scotland and patron saint and founder of the city of Glasgow. Saint Mungo performed four religious miracles in Glasgow.  The following verse is used to remember St. Mungo’s four miracles.

Here is the bird that never flew.

Here is the tree that never grew.

Here is the bell that never rang.

Here is the fish that never swam.

Let us pray together for the people of Glasgow and its local area. We pray that the faith of St Mungo will inspire them to bring the Gospel to all.

Education Scotland

Dear Parent/Carer,

HM Inspectors from Education Scotland will be visiting the school to conduct an inspection during the week commencing 21st January. As part of the inspection, Inspectors gather the views of stakeholders via an online survey which is available at the link below.


As parents/carers are such crucial partners to the school, this is a great opportunity for you to give the school credit for all the work we do in developing your children academically, socially and spiritually. I would like to encourage you to take time to complete the survey. Inspectors will also be meeting with groups of parents during the inspection.  If you wish to be part of that discussion, please complete the survey with additional links provided to indicate your interest in taking part.

Please complete the survey by Friday 11th January for one child or if you wish for each of your children in attendance at Saint Ninian’s.

Kind regards

John Docherty

Monday 7 January 2019.

 Yesterday we celebrated the Feast of The Epiphany when we recall the visit of the Wise Men to the stable in Bethlehem. Epiphany means showing.  As a group, the Wise Men represented the whole of humanity and this showing revealed Jesus as the saviour of all humanity.

Each of the gifts tells us something about this new born baby. The gold reminds us that he is a king but not of this world. Frankincense was used in offerings to God and shows us that Jesus was indeed God. The gift of myrrh predicts the death and suffering of Jesus to save us from our sins. Jesus is shown to us to believe in him; to accept him as our God, our King and our Saviour.

In this way as in all aspects of our life, God calls upon us to live a life following him.  As well as our own intentions, we pray for those who are called to respond to the ‘showing’ of Christ through the priesthood and religious life.

Our Father…..

Weekly Prayers

Monday 17 December 2018.

At this time of year as we lead up to Christmas, the true meaning of this Feast is often lost amongst shopping and excitement. Advent comes from the Latin ‘ad venire’ meaning ‘to come’.

During this third week of Advent we can think about Christ coming into our hearts and ask can we find the room in our hearts for God? Just as a new Advent Candle is lit each week , we can think about a new gift God has given us every week. Week One represented hope that Jesus will soon be here. In Week Two we thought about the love we try our best to show him. Week Three is further joy that Christ will soon be with us. This final week the gift is true peace – the Peace of Christ that no one else can give us. We pray that we will find peace in ourselves and in our relationships with others.

Hail Mary……..
