Our Lady of Consolation Church (part of the parish of Holy Cross) in Glasgow will be closing its doors next Monday. The Church will be closing after serving the local community since 1966 (when the building – then a cinema – was bought for £8000). The church has also served as the Archdiocese youth pastoral centre for many years.
There will be a celebratory Mass of Thanksgiving on Monday 8 September at 7.30pm. It will no doubt be a sad occasion as well as one of celebration. The principal celebrant will be Archbishop Philip Tartaglia.
For those who attend the monthly pro-life Mass organised by the Gospel of Life Sisters, this will now take place in Blessed John Duns Scotus Church in Ballater Street (check our events diary for more details).
