St Mary Magdalenes RC Church Edinburgh 50th Anniversary

It is now 50 years since the first Mass was offered in our church and today (21st April 2018) we remembered that occasion The opening of the church was tremendously important to our parish in 1968. For seven years there had been no church and Sunday Masses were held in the Miners' Institute. After years of fund raising , inconvenience and disappointments at last the church was ready.Finally we had a parish house, and a church. Of course we had a Parish Priest from the beginning. but now the parish was complete

Father Jock, Monsignor Duffy ( a former Parish Priest here) and Father Robinson concelebrated Mass which was lovely and Monsignor Duffy, delivered the homily. After Mass, in true St Mary Magdalene style, we had a party in the hall and porch. We were joined by many former parishioners and members of the other catholic parishes in Edinburgh. We were delighted to welcome ministers and their parshioners from neighbouring churches.>

We wish to thank everyone who came along today and made our 50th Anniversary such a happy and memorable occasion

Photographs and a recording of Monsignor Duffy's homily will appear later on this website

Blessed are you, Lord God of our salvation, to you be praise and glory for ever.
As once you ransomed your people from Egypt and led them to freedom in the promised land,
so now you have delivered us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of your risen Son.
May we, the first fruits of your new creation, rejoice in this new day you have made, and praise you for your mighty acts.
Blessed be God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Blessed be God for ever. AMEN
