End of the Year Roundup 2019

Originally published in the December 2019 Newsletter.

As we begin a new liturgical year, we look back with thankfulness for the opportunities that we have had to support and expand the celebration of the traditional rites.

In June we shared in celebrating Fr Dunn’s 25th anniversary Mass providing music and altar servers.

Fr Doohan in Dundee received his first parish from Bishop Robson and the community there continues to grow having several baptisms and first holy communions in the old rite. Immaculate Heart Parish is also thriving and has had three baptisms and two first
holy communions in the old rite this year. St Mary’s Cleland was the setting for the baptism of another new baby, the daughter of one of our schola members.

In addition to the initiation of new Catholics, Una Voce Scotland assisted with the Requiem Mass of Dr Dunn.

The highlight of the year was the second visit of Cardinal Burke which was a resounding success. The Cardinal was able to see the fruits of his first visit, a ‘Burke Bounce’ one might say.

Una Voce Scotland continues to offer unseen support to many priests who rely on us for vestments, missals, training and personnel to assist with liturgies and events, all of which we do gladly.

Finally at the AGM, we recognised the service of Fred Stone and welcomed Fraser Pearce as the new Chairman. Moving into this new year, we entrust our apostolate to Our Blessed Lady, the Immaculata, who will guide and protect us in doing the work of Her Son.
