Weekly Parish Bulletin

Noticeboard
Warning – Scam Emails Pretending to be from Parish Priests or the Diocese: All Parishioners should be aware there have been a number of scam emails pretending to be from Parish Priests, asking for payments to be made or for vouchers to be purchased on behalf of the priest. The latest emails are not from our official @rcdop.org.uk domain but even if they appeared to be - DO NOT RESPOND to the emails. Our Diocesan policy is that we will never email you to make any purchase or bank transfer on our behalf. If you do get such an email, please contact your Parish Priest preferably by phone or create a new email to the Parish (i.e. do not reply to the one you received). A good general principle is that you should not respond to unsolicited emails.

With the foundation of St. Mirin's in Paisley in 1808 a Mission to 18 surrounding villages began in a more systematic form. St. Fillan's Parish in Houston was founded in 1841 and the Catholic members of the village community could celebrate Mass by walking to the Church there. In 1883 a Mass station was opened in Bishopton and with the purchase of land in 1915 a Church was built and finally opened on April 10th 1926.

The Church was not heated and after a small hall had been built and a presbytery acquired (100 Old Greenock Rd.) it was necessary to undertake substantial renovation and rebuilding work in 1949. The present Presbytery was built on the site of the old hall in 1967. Since then the Church has, on a number of occasions, been remodelled and the interior renovated.

Some of the present furnishings on the sanctuary; the Ambo (from which the Word of God is Proclaimed) and the Presidential Chair, were made by John McLaughlin - a local sculptor in wood - from the old benches of the Church.
