Welcome to the Catholic Parishes in Duntocher & Faifley
The parish newsletter is taking a break the next edition will be on August 8th
We can now socially distance in the Church to one metre.
Therefore, the capacity of St. Mary’s will be 65 which will depend on family bubbles.
The capacity of St. Joseph’s will be 55 but this will also depend on family bubbles.
It will still be necessary to book a place at the weekend masses in both parishes.
Weekday mass does not require to be booked but names and contact numbers will still be collected at the door of the Church. The weekday mass will be announced on a weekly basis and both Churches will be used for Mass. This may also vary depending on the time and location of a funeral.
St. Mary’s Church and Belfry – Building Work
The work to the Church is now well on the way to completion and you can see a gallery of images for the repairs we've had done here.
Sadly, once the scaffolding was erected on to the Belfry, the damage to the concrete guttering was severe and has now been removed. Therefore, work will now continue to the Belfry until it is completed and made safe. The scaffolding will remain in place until this is done.
Welcome From Fr Paul Milarvie, Our Parish Priest
Welcome to our website for the parishes of St. Joseph’s Faifley and St. Mary’s Duntocher.
Having celebrated the Feast of Pentecost, we are now in Ordinary time in the Church’s liturgical year. In many respects , we may still see this ordinary time as something quite extraordinary as we establish the new normal. Things are, definitely, different and they present their own unique challenges.
However, the pandemic for all the chaos, that one level it has most certainly caused, has also given many of us the opportunity to reflect and appreciate our life and our faith in a different way. These could even be perceived as grace-filled moments.
As we make our way through the summer months, let God’s light as well as the natural light of day lift up our Spirits and our faith. May we have the courage to meet and embrace the challenges and the encounters of the crossroads with a renewed sense of purpose in the weeks and months ahead.
