    “Our life and our death is with our neighbour.

    If we gain our brother or sister, we have gained God,

    but if we scandalise our brother or sister, we have sinned against Christ."

    **A 2nd Collection  for Justice & Peace will be taken up today at Mass**


    I’ve been very encouraged and inspired by the Justice & Peace work that is done in the parish and the local community. Please be as generous as you are able to be to help support this important work and thank you for your continued support.  



    Fr Ronald away. I’ll be away from Lochgilphead from Wednesday morning until Friday afternoon. I’m going to Colonsay to celebrate mass and to get to know the parishioners that are in that part of our parish. 



    Prayer Group. The prayer group will restart this Wednesday, 15th January at 7pm in St Margaret’s. The beauty of the prayer group is that it creates a space at a set time each week for us to take 20-30 minutes to share our prayer intentions and being encouraged to know that as a group we make each individual intention our own. I hope at the start of the New Year you may think about coming along. If you cannot make it every week that’s fine, things crop up for all if us, but I hope it is something you may consider if you find you have the time. It is a simple format but a powerful witness of faith.


    Children’s Mass. There will be a Children’s mass this Friday, 17th January at 5.30pm.All most welcome. 


    Safeguarding Training will be delivered for all parish volunteers this Saturday, 18th January in Lochgilphead Parish Hall from 1pm – 3pm. 


    MO-MA/Simon Community/Apostleship of the Sea are all in need of donations – toiletries, household cleaning materials, washing-up liquid/powder, tea towels, warm clothing, woolly hats, gloves, sleeping bags.
