Led by the Spirit Phase 3

Please take away with you Bishop Brian’s Pastoral Letter concerning Led by the Spirit Phase 3. The bishop reflects on our call to holiness and our mission of proclaiming Christ. In our much-changed environment what steps are needed to faithfully fulfil our mission? Discernment calls for boldness, honesty and respectful listening but especially for an openness to the Spirit’s promptings. Everyone is encouraged to participate. The method for the parish gatherings will be the Conversation in the Spirit. Background information about Conversation in the Spirit, lay ministries and potential Church structures can be found on

Standing Orders

Many thanks to those who have taken out standing orders, this has made a huge difference to the parishes, particularly in saving us hundreds of pounds in Gift Aid envelopes. In the next week weeks, we will be asking parishioners in St. John’s Caol if they would be good enough to go to standing orders. Thank you for your continued help and support in this matter. Fr. David.
