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, currently stands at £6,500 and as planned there will be a second collection next Sunday.
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.
Bishop Toal's Gift. The Diocese have asked if each Parish would take a collection in each Parish so that the money can be collated and presented to Bishop Joe. This collection will be made on Sunday 10 August.
Family Retreat at Craig Lodge Dalmally. I will be leading a retreat for a few days at Craig Lodge next week, so will be away from the Parish from Tuesday evening to Friday night.
