Fr. Roddy Johnston

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Fr. Roddy. We all knew and loved Fr. Roddy dearly, and his loss will be felt very keenly particularly here in Lochaber.

Fr. Roddy’s funeral will be held on Wednesday the 3rd of April at 10am in St. Columba’s Cathedral Oban. There will be a bus which will leave from St. John’s Caol at 07.45am, and St. Mary’s 8am, and will return straight after the mass.

Please put your name on the list at the back of the church for numbers.
