Fr. Walter

As most of you now know Fr. Walter will be coming to the parishes of St. John’s Caol, and St. Mary’s and St. Finnan, Glenfinnan on Friday the 27th of October. It is hoped that by that time the parish house in Caol will be vacant, and Fr. Walter will stay there for the foreseeable future. This is quite a change for all of us. I will no longer be your parish priest. Fr. Walter will be in charge of both Caol and Glenfinnan, The Bishop has asked that the mass times at the weekend do not change as he would like in the case of illness or holidays that the parishes can still be served by one priest. Fr. Walter will need help from you the parishioners to give him time to settle in and make the house comfortable for him. Nearer the time we will be asking for help from the community, please if you can do your best to help us and Fr. Walter to settle into Lochaber, so that his time here may be fruitful.

Fr. David Connor, P.P.

John Haggerty

A huge thank you to John for the work that he has done on the speakers in St. Mary’s and for setting up a temporary system. This is very much appreciated. It is hoped in time to look at getting a new system installed.

Paul Nelson MacDonald & Ann Marie MacDonald 

Many congratulations to Paul and Ann Marie Macdonald who celebrate 44 years of marriage and are with us in St. Mary’s this morning. May the Lord continue to bless them in their married union.
