St. John Ogilvie Prayer Vigil

Posted by Joseph on 1 March, 2010

Dear Fellow Scottish Catholics,
Scotland’s St. John Ogilvie died a Martyr’s death at Glasgow Tollbooth because he came “to unteach heresy and to save souls” during a time when the Catholic Faith in Scotland was suffering greatly. Today is no different.
Please join us at Glasgow Cross, next to the Tollbooth on Sunday 7th March at 3pm to ask his intersession. Our petition is that the visit by his Holiness Pope Benedict XVI will be a step towards the conversion and revival of many souls in our beloved Scotland.

    A well publicised event, but not many people. 6 Brothers from KSC council 396 were there.
    We are at the momment collecting a petition on the Sanctity of Marriage to hand to MSP Nicola Sturgeon just before the elections. This is out with the National petitions, other Government Ministers should be targeted by the local Knights of St. Columba Councils. Council 396 KSC will be having a week-end of prayer. Starting with Mass Friday 27 April, venue to be arranged, hopefully Glasgow Cathedral, Saturday Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament 10.00 St. Alphonsus – Barra’s Calton Glasgow, Rosary. 12.30 Mass , Benediction 4.00. On the Sunday leaflet the local parishes of Council members. Once the details are finalised will get in touch, hope to have Legion of Mary, SVdP and other Lay Apostalates involved.

      Hi James,

      Thanks for coming- hopefully the numbers will increase year by year.

      Yes, send me the details of your weekend of prayer and I will publicise it.

      God bless
