    As I am away on holiday until 22 August, please welcome Fr Sandy Culley again to our parish. If he is not available in Lochgilphead please phone

    Fr. Jamie in Oban on 01631-562-123.


    Wednesday is the Feast of the Assumption of The Blessed Virgin Mary into heaven and is a holiday of obligation.   Mass will be at 10.30am and 6.00pm

    in St Margarets.


    This week there will be a second collection at all masses for the

    Bishop's Fund. Please be as generous as you can. 


    A huge thank you for all the donations to a newer car for the parish, your generosity has been quite overwhelming. This leaves us with one more

    collection to go at the end of August, and the total raised so far is over £5000. Thank you very much indeed.


    It is with great sadness that I announce the death of Alan Hawkins

    on Friday the 3rd of August in Mid-Argyll Hospital surrounded by his family

    and friends. Alan was an integral part of our parish community, and will be

    a huge loss to all those who knew and loved him. His funeral mass will take

    place nearer the end of the month. May he sleep in peace and rise in glory.
