St. Mary’s, Fort William

We have now received an estimated figure for the work to make the back wall secure, and the painting of the inside of the church. This will cost approximately £20,000.  I do realise that this not the best time to be asking for money, but this is essential work to the fabric of the church this work will start this Monday the 1st of November. This will mean that all weekday masses will take place in St. John’s until further notice. I am delighted to say that due to a very generous donation, out total is now standing at £11,090. Many thanks indeed.

Prayer Cards for the Synod

There are prayer cards at the back of the church for the Synod. This is an excellent opportunity for each one of us, as baptised Christians to play a deeper role in the life of the church, and to hear and respect your views. Please pray that the Holy Spirit will bring fresh wisdom to our deliberations.
