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 to discuss some particular topics pertaining to them. This meeting will be held on Tuesday the 28th of June at 7pm, in St. John’s.



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.
