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.

Eucharistic Ministers

It is proposed to have a meeting of all Eucharistic Ministers from all three parishes, on Tuesday the 24th of October at 7pm, in St. Mary’s Fort William. If you are unable to attend, please ensure you put in your apologies, to Fr. David or Deacon Thomas.

Missio Scotland

Please put in your diary the date for World Mission Sunday which will be next Sunday the 22nd of October. There will be a second collection at all masses for this very worthy cause.

Sick and Housebound

If anyone requires a visit to the house or are in hospital, please get in touch with Fr. David or Deacon Thomas.

Dinah MacKinnon R.I.P.

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Dinah, to her friends and family we offer our love and prayers at this sad time. Dinah’s funeral mass will be on Tuesday the 17th of October at 11am in St. Mary’s. All are most welcome to attend.
