Comments Off on St Simon’s Polish Memorial Stone

Polish Memorial Stone:  Translation from the Polish

During the second World War Polish soldiers on leave from the battlefields came to this church to attend Mass together to hear the word of God in their native tongue, to sing their Polish hymns, and to thank Our Lady, Queen of Poland, for this touch of home the Polish community of Glasgow has. Through the years they felt deeply grateful to Father Patrick Tierney for the privilege he has accorded them of celebrating the Polish Mass in this Church and for the many kindnesses preceived from him and the parishoners.

Pastoral Care The 150 CLUB (Reminiscences)

Comments Off on Pastoral Care The 150 CLUB (Reminiscences)

The Pastoral Care group have established this Club as part of the 150th celebrations.
The aim of the Club is to allow parishioners to meet in an informal setting as a way of
getting to know each other a bit better. Pastoral Care have been keen to reach out
to the wider community which makes up St Simon’s and it was felt that a regular
opportunity to meet might help this. To date there are twenty of us meeting on
Saturdays at 2.45-4pm on a fortnightly basis.

Please come along and help support this worthwhile initiative.
If you know of any member of our community who may need assistance in
attending either the Club or Mass please contact

Sharon Gallagher on 0141 334
4521 or speak to one of the members of
Pastoral Care after Sunday or daily Mass
