    “When I die, I will send down a shower of roses from the heavens,I will spend my heaven by doing good on earth.”

     

    St. Therese of Lisieux

     

     

     

     

    15 SEPTEMBER 2019

    St Thérèse of Lisieux The celebrations and liturgies in Oban to mark the relics of St Thérèse being in our diocese were beautiful and truly memorable. It was lovely to see so many familiar faces. What particularly struck me was the amount of people that visited the cathedral and paid their respects and spent time in prayer. Some voices in the world want us to believe that faith is irrelevant – don’t believe the hype! We pray that this occasion will bestow continued blessings on the Church in Scotland.

     

    Parish Car. I now have a car, which is a Dacia Sandero. Total cost was £10,090 and comprehensive insurance cover for 1 year was £418 and so it was within the budget of £10,660 which we will receive from Fort William for Fr David’s car. Oban has funded the car until the money from Fort William comes through.   

     

    Schools. If you have a child in primary or secondary school, please do let me know as it would be good to continue to build up links with the local schools. Fr Ronald.

     

    The Pope Francis Faith Award is a scheme for children in P.6 and teaches them about the gifts of the Holy Spirit and how they use these gifts at home, school and in their community. I am very keen to give children in our parish the opportunity to participate in the Award which last year saw 5000 children in Scotland complete it. If interested please let me know and I’ll contact relevant schools to hopefully get it rolled out. Fr Ronald.       

     

    2nd Collection. There will be a 2nd collection next Sunday, 22nd September, for Pastoral formation.

     

    Gift Aid Visitor Envelopes if you are a visitor to our parish and are able to contribute to the collection, can I encourage you to use our gift aid visitor envelopes. If you are a UK taxpayer we can claim 25p for every pound donated at no extra cost to you. Fr Ronald.

     

    MO-MA are in need of any toiletries that you can spare.
