    Thank you to all who gave of their time and talents to the Zam Scot-Ed Coffee Morning yesterday, your help was much appreciated. Thank you

    Helen and James Simpson, Bene Merenti medals, It is with great joy that I can announce that Helen and James Simpson have been awarded Bene Merenti medals for all their hard years of work for the church. There will be a presentation of these medals to them by Bishop Brian, at a mass in St. Margaret's Lochgilphead on Friday the 27th of April at 6pm. We will then go to Lochgilphead Parish Hall for a buffet and drinks. Please put this evening in your diary, as it is a very special celebration not only for them, but also for the parish.

    On the morning of Thursday the 26th of April after Mass at 11am, could we please have a few volunteers to clean and get the Church ready for Friday night.


    If you are coming next Friday and need a lift please let us know, and we can pick you up. We also require food for the evening so please put your name down to the list at the back for any food. Wine and soft drinks will be provided, if you wish anything else. Please bring your own bottle.
