Bro. Pastor Bill Shirlaw and his congregation at Cathcart Congregational Church had an extra reason to celebrate on Christmas Eve.
For following a special service attended by Freemasons from all over the Province of Renfrewshire East, PGM Bro. John. S. Miller presented the PG Chaplain with cheques worth in total £1285 towards his Church.
This figure represented donations made by a number of lodges in the Province including PGL. Apart from that other lodges had already made their own donations direct to the Church bringing the total to over £1500.
The money will go towards a number of essential works including roof repairs and has earned the gratitude of Bro. Pastor Bill and his congregation.
There was also a surprise visitor at the Christmas Eve service when Santa – bearing an uncanny resemblance to PPGSW Bro. Eddie Chamberlain under the red cloak and white beard – made an early appearance!
