Caol Chapel House

We welcome Corrina McCormack and her family to the parish house in Caol. Corrina all being well will be in the house for the foreseeable future, we wish them health and happiness in the house. Please be aware that when coming to mass, there is no longer access to the church down the house side of the building. Please respect their privacy.

Rosary and Benediction

During the month of May, we will have Rosary and Benediction every Wednesday starting with this Wednesday the 5th in St. Mary’s at 7pm, and next week the 12th of May will be in St. John’s Caol at 7pm.

Church Numbers

Since April the 26th the cap on those coming to mass has been lifted, this makes a huge difference to us particularly in Caol, and Fort William as we have such big churches that we no longer need to be concerned about numbers. The usual regulations regarding social distancing, sanitising of hands, track and trace, and cleaning schedule will be remaining until further notice.
