By means of the decree, the Apostolic Penitentiary “confirms and extends for the entire month of November 2021 all the spiritual benefits already granted on 22 October 2020” – that is, it allows the faithful to gain plenary indulgences for the souls in purgatory by visiting a cemetery on every day in November and praying for those who have died; normally, the indulgence is limited to the first eight days of the month. A second plenary indulgence is also established for the day of the commemoration of the faithful departed, All Souls’ Day, November 2. The current decree allows the faithful to obtain that indulgence for the benefit of the deceased on any day of November, at their choice.
The Sacred Heart & St Margaret's is parish of the Archdiocese of St Andrews and Edinburgh a charity registered in Scotland number SC008540  

Friends of Sacred Heart and St Margaret's welcomes you

The Friends of Sacred Heart was established in December 2005. It is part of what the parish does to engage with the wider community. On its behalf a group of parishioners meets regularly to organise fundraising and the allocation of funding to overseas projects.

Friends of Sacred Heart targets projects that are not supported by major charities. They are usually suggested by members of the parish because of a personal link, recommendation or knowledge of what they do.


Friends of Sacred Heart uses a formal application form to consider potential projects. Projects provide written reports and photos to show how the funding benefits the people receiving the service or provision. There are no administration costs: 100% of the money goes to the projects.

Dear Sir/Ma,


We received with joy and thanksgiving to God your donation of 2,100 Pounds sometimes in September 2018. We sincerely appreciate your kind gesture and benevolence. Our Lady of Apostles' Hospital Jos is Faith-Based and non-profit in nature and operates a fee for service arrangement.This donation has gone a long way in cushioning the stress on our already overstretched wheelchairs as well as providing comfort to our patients who are currently enjoying them. Below is a breakdown of how the money was expended.


  1. Bank charges were deducted from the amount sent to the tune of 100 Pounds.
  2. . The remaining 2,000 Pounds was used to purchase 20 wheel chairs at the cost of 1,695 Pounds.
  3. 305 Pounds is the excess remaining from the amount.


Purchase of the wheel chairs was delayed due to activities marking the end of the year alongside quality of the initial supply which was poor as against the ones requested for.


We humbly request if we may use the balance of 305 Pounds to purchase a hematocrit machine aid in our laboratory investigations.


Thank you and God bless.


Sr. Florence Dunkong, OLF

Several applications from different parishes have come for scholarship and reviewing the applications with recommendations from the respective parish priest, the Scholarship Committee has sanctioned 15 forms. The beneficiaries’ details of scholarship awarded are given below for FY 2018-19:


The sanctioned funds of Rs.2,26,864/- were entirely utilized including opening balance of Rs.5,114/- to assist 14 most deserving candidates approved by the Committee considering the economical background of the beneficiaries. The allotted scholarship funds were credited into beneficiaries account via bank transfer.


We express our hearty gratitude to Friends of Sacred Heart for all the possible support and mobilizing St. Margaret parish for making funds spooling for the poorest students of our diocese. Kindly convey our sincere thanks and warm regards to St. Margaret parish for their generosity.
