Wearing of face masks
The Scottish Government announced this week that the wearing of face masks in places of worship is no longer compulsory, from Monday the 4th of April. If you still feel uncomfortable with this, please feel free to continue to wear your mask.
It is hoped in the not to distant future we will have a get together of all the baptised to take part in the Synodal process. This is an opportunity for each one of us, to let our voices be heard, and to hopefully build a church, suitable for all for the future.
Arthur Maclean Wilkie R.I.P.
It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Arthur, to his family and friends we offer our love and our prayers at this time. Arthur’s funeral will take place on Friday the 22nd of April in St. Mary’s at 12am, all are welcome.
With Kevin leaving to go to pastures new, we are in need of an organist to play on Sundays at St. Mary’s, and as required. If anyone knows of anyone who could help with this post, please contact Fr. David. There will be a salary commensurate to experience, and the time that they are able to give to the role.
St. Mary’s roof repairs, and the second phase of the painting of the church
The roof repairs, and the painting of the church are now complete. I want to thank Nodram painters, and all those who have help to contribute towards this large project. I am delighted with the how the church looks, I hope you the parishioners are as well. Our total is now over £13,000 pounds. Many thanks indeed. Fr. David.
New Organ for St. Mary’s
I have been in discussions this week about the new organ for St. Mary’s, the speakers are being made at the moment. Unfortunately, they are having problems with accessing the right parts from Europe. So, there will be a slight delay. The proposed date will be the end of May, for the new organ to be in place.
On behalf of myself and Deacon Thomas, we would like to wish all the parishioners, a very happy and holy Easter. May the joy of the risen Lord be in your hearts and in your homes. We thank all who have given of their time and energy to make the Liturgies so special. Thank you all very much indeed. Fr. David.
