Wednesday 14 December, 7pm.
A candlelit service of readings, silence, and chants from the Taizé Community at 7pm on Wednesday 14 December. This will be an ecumenical service and it is an ideal occasion to bring along family and friends who are not Catholic. It will finish by 8pm. Refreshments served afterwards in the Garden Room.

After Masses on Gaudete Sunday, there will be a sale of cakes, buns, jams, mincemeat – anything homemade! Donated items will be sold in aid of our Parish Advent Project.
Saturday 3 December at 5pm.
A service of prayers, carols, and readings for the Advent and Christmas seasons. There will be a collection for our Parish Advent Project, and the evening will conclude with refreshments in the Garden Room.
On Monday 28th November at 7pm in the Garden Room our own Déirdre Ní Mhathúna will present her 30 minute documentary film, “Calman nan Loch” (The Dove of Lochs) which is about the singing of psalms on the boats off Lewis. The film will be followed by a discussion. All are welcome.
There will be a time of prayer before the Blessed Sacrament on the First Sunday of Advent, starting after the 12 O’Clock Mass and finishing just before the Student Mass at 7.15pm. We need some people to sign up to pray in the Chapel and some people to act as hosts for afternoon tea in the Garden Room between 2pm and 4pm.
The Catholic Chaplaincy serves the students and staff of the University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh Napier University and Queen Margaret University.
The Catholic Chaplaincy is also a parish of the Archdiocese of St Andrews and Edinburgh (the Parish of St Albert the Great) and all Catholic students and staff are automatically members of this parish.
