    Once again we welcome Fr Tom to the parish and thank him for giving his time to allow Fr David the opportunity to get away.   Fr David will be back on Tuesday

    Mission Appeal, The Sisters of St. Peter Claver thank you very much for your generosity last Sunday.   The total will be made known next Sunday.

    Argyll & The Isles; At the back of the Church there is for sale, A history of the Catholic Church in Argyll and the Isles, by John Watts, the books are priced at £20

     Heating in the house.   Unfortunately the heating in the Chapel House has been looked at and the boiler and the radiators are no longer fit for purpose. This will really have to be done before next winter approaches. I have received one estimate at the moment and I am waiting on others coming in, but it would seem that the cost will be in the region of £7,500 plus vat. This would make it around £9,000. Unfortunately we only have around £5,000 in the Church Account and even with the Church Fair, Coffee mornings and the Gift Aid, we are still going to struggle. If anyone has any fund raising ideas or would like to donate towards the heating please let me know.

    Heating Fund, With Fr David away there is no update on the heating fund.   It last stood at  £3,485.90 and your generosity is appreciated.

    Pilgrimage to Morar, There is to be a Mass to mark the 300th Anniversary of the First seminary in Scotland, Eilean Ban, Loch Morar. This will be held on Wednesday the 6th of August 2014 at 1.00pm. Those wishing to join us for the day please let me know, because we will hire a mini bus if we get enough numbers.

    Summer Fayre: Rearranged date for the Summer Fair is Saturday the 16th of August from  12-3pm. 

     

     

     

     Note. Weekday Mass times subject to alteration at short notice.
