On 2nd October this year we will celebrate, to the day, the 50th anniversary of the first Mass to be celebrated in Saint Helen’s. We hope to make it a special time for the parish. Does anyone know the first couple to get married in Saint Helen’s…the first baby to be baptised? Were you married in Saint Helen’s that year and celebrate your own Golden Wedding Anniversary this year? If you have any memorabilia or photographs associated with the beginning of the parish, we would be really pleased if you would lend them to us for a display in the hall at the time of the anniversary. There will be lots more information later on, but for the moment just make sure you put the date in your diary: SUNDAY 2nd OCTOBER 2016 at the 11.00 am MASS. The Archbishop will celebrate the Mass and there will be a parish brunch afterwards.
Saint Helen's is a Roman Catholic parish of the Archdiocese of Glasgow and serves an area in the south side of the city which includes Shawlands, Langside, Strathbungo and Crossmyloof.
