     9 September 2018


    This Sunday there will be a second collection for Sick and Retired Priests, please be as generous as you can. 


    Unity, Please avail yourself to a copy of Unity. We thank Marian for all her hard work in continuing to put Unity together. 


    Next Saturday the 15th of September, there will be a coffee morning for the continued good work of Zam-Scot-Ed, from 10-12am. Please come along and support this most worthy cause. 


    I will be away from Saturday the 8th till Saturday the 15th of September. We thank Fr. Sandy for helping us out once more. If anyone requires a priest in an emergency, please phone Fr. James in Oban on



    Sacramental Classes for the Children. Some parents have asked recently when we will be starting classes for the children who wish to make their sacraments. We hope to start these in early October. This will be for children in Primaries 4 and 5. Please keep an eye on the newsletter for further information. 


    Parish Car, Many thanks to all who gave so generously to the purchase of a newer car for the parish. You will be glad to hear that the final total was in the region of £5,600 pounds. I have bought a Skoda Octavia, which is only a year old, and has 2 years left on the warranty. With the collection and the Gift Aid, this paid for over half the car, so thank you again for your generosity. Fr. David. 


    Liturgy Works, Our next weekend of Liturgy Works will be from the 28-30th of September all are most welcome. If you wish to go please give your name to Denise Maclean and your deposit.
