“This is the chalice of my blood, poured out for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins.”
DURING THIS MONTH OF JULY, I invite everyone to renew their devotion to the Precious Blood of Christ, the price of our salvation. The Litany of the Precious Blood may be found here: https://www.catholic.org/prayers/prayer.php?p=465

RESUMPTION OF MASS WITH THE PEOPLE: PRESS STATEMENT FROM THE SCOTTISH CATHOLIC MEDIA OFFICE

Catholic Bishops announce resumption of communal worship
Scotland’s Catholic Bishops have welcomed the First Minister’s comments today (Thursday 9 July) on places of worship and have announced the resumption of communal worship in Catholic parishes from 15 July. Commenting on the move, the President of the Bishops’ Conference of Scotland, Bishop Hugh Gilbert said;
“Over the past month, our parishes have been preparing for the safe resumption of communal prayer and the celebration of Mass, which is at the centre of the life of the church. To have been unable to attend Mass for many months has been a source of real sadness for Scotland’s Catholics and I am sure there will be great joy at the prospect of returning.”
“Thanks to the widespread implementation of the church’s Infection Control protocols, Catholic parishes will begin the resumption of public Masses and other communal activities from 15 July.”
Bishop Gilbert added;
“The bishops are extremely grateful to all those who have worked tirelessly to prepare our parishes for public worship and to those who made their views known to their parliamentary representatives and the government on the subject of communal worship.
While thanking the Scottish Government for listening to these calls, we would remind parishioners that the obligation to attend Sunday Mass remains suspended and ask those who return to do so in accordance with the infection control measures in force in each parish, mindful always of the need to protect themselves and others.”
