Grateful thanks to all who took part in our first meeting on the Synod. It was a very open and frank discussion, and we look to the future with confidence. It was felt that it would be beneficial to have a meeting in St. John’s Caol. We had a very fruitful meeting in St. John’s and St. Mary’s and there is separate sheet with points discussed at the meeting.  


New Organ for St. Mary’s

It is wonderful to see the new organ at last in place. It will be installed properly between the 12th and the 14th of July. It is proposed that the organ will be blessed at the Sunday mass on Sunday the 17th of July, and in thanksgiving we will have a recital on the 17th of July at 6pm, with tea coffee, wine, and sandwiches afterwards. Everybody is most welcome to attend from all of the three parishes.

St. John’s Cleaning of the Church

Many thanks to all who helped clean the church on Thursday. The church is looking great.

Official Prayer for the World Meeting of Families

At the back of the church are prayer cards for the World Meeting of Families. Please help yourself to one and pray for the success of the meeting.

Parish Pastoral Council

It is proposed that we start a Parish Pastoral Council which will be one council for the three parishes. Anyone wishing to assist on this council, please speak to Deacon Thomas, or Fr. David.

Annie Faryma R.I.P.

We pray for the repose of the soul of Annie Faryma, who died peacefully in Mosspark. To her family and friends, we offer our love and our prayers at this time.
