Rev. Alexander Guinness R.I.P.
It is with great sadness that we announce the death of the Rev. Alexander Guinness. Alexander served the people of God faithfully for many years in Elgin, Lossiemouth, Glasgow, Dunoon, and latterly the people of Lochaber. We pray for his wife Elaine, and his extended family, friends, parishioners and all who knew Alexander. May he sleep in peace and rise in glory. Alexander’s funeral will be St. Andrew’s Fort William on Wednesday the 21st of June. The time has still to be confirmed.
