Craigneuk's Got Talent is being held on Friday 13th of April at St Patrick’s Parochial Hall
THIS NIGHT IS NOW SOLD OUT
Proceeds from the C.G.T evening, will go to the Belarus Seminary Fund. It was setup some years ago and is operated through the Charity, Aid to the Church in Need. The Seminary is home to some 50 or so students for the Priesthood. Many of whom come from poor families making it very hard financially for them to support their sons in pursuing their vocation.
Funds raised in our parish can make all the difference and help provide for some of their costs. Over the past 8 years alone, £13,195 has been raised through dances, cabarets and donations by parishioners providing support which is very much appreciated by all in the Seminary.
The following list of singers will be performing at the evening:
Many thanks to all for your continued support to this project and please enjoy your night.

Celtic Football Club supporter Neil Murray packed up nearly 20 classic green and white-striped shirts and posted them off to Grodno Seminary, Belarus. Neil has been a leading light in efforts to support the seminary, working closely with his parish of St. Patrick’s Church, Shieldmuir, Lanarkshire and Aid to the Church in Need.
Neil sent the shirts to Belarus after an idea came to him following a tribute to former Celtic manager Tommy Burns in which thousands of fans left shirts at their home ground in Parkhead, Glasgow, as a mark of respect.
Neil contacted the club afterwards to ask if any shirts were available in continuation of the charitable work which has been a hallmark of Celtic for so many years. He duly received two boxes full of shirts and arranged for them to be sent to Grodno Seminary. Not long after, Neil received a letter back from the seminary thanking him for the football shirts.
(Not mentioned is the many hours Ann Murray spent scrubbing, washing and ironing said shirts so they would be clean and presentable to the young priests.)
