Clare Cushing of St Anthony’s Roman Catholic Church in Balfron writes


‘The Balfron Community Choir , (which originally  grew  from  the  church  choir  in Balfron  Church)  are coming to perform at St. Anthony’s. Although this is not an official ecumenical event, I thought it might be nice if everyone who has a link with St. Anthony’s or  a link through the churches in Balfron area felt welcome to come along to the concert.

The concert will start at 7:30 and will contain a variety of repertoire to suit everyone, from Mozart  to les Mis and  lots in between !

Tickets are  £4 and £2 and can be purchased from Balfron Library, Mac Farlanes  (Hardware) in Balfron, or from me  on 07726941407’

Trinity 16

O Lord, we beseech you mercifully to hear the prayers
of your people who call upon you;
and grant that they may both perceive and know
what things they ought to do,
and also may have grace and power faithfully to fulfil them;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
