The organisers of the National Rosary Rally in May have also organised a similar rally for Saturday 31st October. Galloway Diocese has been allocated the hour from 4.00 pm to 5.00 pm to encourage people in the diocese to pray the rosary. A one hour diocesan rosary service will be broadcast on Facebook at 4.00 pm on 31st October.
The Sisters of the Cross and Passion, who in the past were very actively involved in education in the diocese, are celebrating the 200th anniversary of the birth of their founder, Elizabeth Prout. The sisters run the retreat centre in Drumalis and are hosting a series of Zoom lectures.

The Diocese has registered with Amazon Smile. The prices on amazon smile are the same as on the regular Amazon site. However Amazon donates 0.5% of spending to the nominated charity. This is a good way for those who use Amazon to support diocesan finances at no extra cost. Please follow this link

This makes a grand total of 2794 bags sent! Mary’s Meals feed children in 19 of the poorest countries of the world. We are now gathering items for our next set of school bags. Thank you again for your continued support.
