The Friends of Divine Mercy Scotland are taking the Mercy Bus back out on the road this summer to spread the joy of the Gospel from a double-decker bus. Last year, over 200 people boarded the Bus and more than 1,000 Miraculous Medals and Divine Mercy Chaplets were given out on the streets of Scotland. The Mercy Bus will visit Motherwell Diocese on Tuesday 31st July when it will be in Coatbridge. The bus will also visit Johnstone, Greenock, Cumbernauld, Glasgow and Paisley. Holy Mass will be celebrated by Father Stephen Baillie of the Diocese of Paisley on board the bus at 2 p.m. on Saturday 4 August 2018 at Paisley town centre. Fr Joe Burke will open the tour in Johnstone Square, Renfrewshire on Monday 30 July 2018 at 11 a.m. Organiser Helen Border said: “Everyone is welcome to come along and visit our ‘church on wheels!’ Today, people find forgiveness hard to accept and sometimes even harder to give. Taking the church to the people shows that the Lord loves and cares for them and wants them to return to him.” “There will be priests hearing confessions on the top deck of the ‘Mercy Bus’ with literature, tea, coffee and home baking available downstairs.” DATES, TIMES AND VENUES Monday 30 July 2018 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. Houston Square, Johnstone, Renfrewshire Tuesday 31 July 2018 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. Quadrant Shopping Centre, 126 Main Street, Coatbridge Wednesday 01 August 2018 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. Cathcart Square, Greenock town centre, Greenock Thursday 02 August 2018 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. Antonine Centre, Tryst Road, Cumbernauld Friday 03 August 2018 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. Buchanan Street, outside the Concert Hall, Glasgow Saturday 04 August 2018 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. Paisley High Street, Paisley where Fr Stephen Baillie will be celebrating Holy mass at 2 p.m.
