This Mass is an act of worship in communion with the church throughout the world
on the 4th Sunday of the Year, but it also expresses both our delight in being Scots
and our traditional hospitality to visitors among us for the Celtic Connections Festival.
Several choirs from the parishes of the Archdiocese of Glasgow join with the St Mungo
Singers and the choir of St Mungo’s, Alloa, and are accompanied by Piper, Harpist and
Ensemble. The chief concelebrant this year is Mgr Gerry Fitzpatrick, the homilist is
Fr Michael Hutson, the clergy will be wearing the beautiful vestments of the Celtic Saints
created by the ‘Sacred Threads’ and a new setting of Eucharistic Prayer 2 will be sung.
Bailie Catherine McMaster will epresent the Lord Provost of Glasgow.
The intercessions, in English, Gaelic, and Irish Gaelic, include :
‘We pray for the citizens of Glasgow, both new and old,
for performers and guests who have come here to enjoy and take part in the Festival,
for people who use the arts as a means of expressing the joy and dignity of all that is human,
and for people everywhere who are less fortunate than ourselves.’
