St. Leo the Great   5 Beech Avenue,  Glasgow G41 5BY   0141 427 0293 The Archdiocese of Glasgow. A Designated religious charity, No SCO18140  Priest: Fr Gerry Fitzpatrick   Church open daily  10.00. Open Saturday 6.00 and Sunday 10.30 for private prayer.  No Mass or service.     See calendar for March on page 7 – but now modified.  The Bulletin can be picked up at the church or behind the storm doors at the Parish House.


Current Schedule: No services, and the4 church building is closed,  but the parish is alive

The church will no longer  be open for a while daily at the usual times when we normally have Mass.  I have put services, prayers and Stations of the Cross onto the parish website, a recording of the Sunday Mass on radioalba every hour from 7.30 a.m. , and I will try to learn how to stream services this week.  Our Thursday morning ecumenical Morning Prayer for Lent has to be discontinued for the moment, and Sherbrooke Mosspark Church, like St Leo’s, will no longer be open for private prayer at 10.00 on Thursday.

Please get in touch if I can be of help.  The SVDP members – and other members of the parish –  have offered to help if you are not able to go shopping or whatever – and see page 6 in the bulletin about the support on offer from the Dumbreck Neighbourhood Watch.


The parish Fabric and Finance Committee and I are grateful for the generous support of the parishioners.  St Leo’s is a small community but we pay our way.
In this time when there are no services we still need to keep things going so please do what you can to continue your support.

The SCIAF collection this Sunday will be badly affected, so do what you can – either send it directly to SCIAF at 7 West Nile St.Glasgow G1 2PR
or hand it in to the church during the normal mass times (though there will be no Mass) or at the house.  Similarly with the normal  collections.
We will all do what we can and will get through it all.

An 80th Birthday Thank you:

Fr Gerry writes:  thank you all for your good wishes, gifts and expressions of affection for me as I celebrate my 80th birthday.  I am very happy to be here in St Leo’s and glad to be able to offer whatever I can in serving our community.  Thank you for the generosity with which so many are able to take part in parish life, and your support of each other, and at a personal level for your appreciation of what I try to do, for your great kindnesses, and for your patience with my inadequacies.
