    Regretfully due to a technical hitch Live Streaming of Mass cannot take place from |St Margarets today! Go to  St Marys, Fort William (Fr Davids Parish at 10.15St


     All masses are suspended until further notice. The Mass of Chrism and the Easter Triduum will be held in private. 

     Holy Mass will be live streamed every Sunday at 10am via the St Margaret Parish Church Facebook page. 

     This is a difficult time for our parish, wider community and indeed our world. I’ve already been heartened by the messages of support to our parish and for those most in need. 

    A number of parishioners have kindly offered to help those who are most vulnerable. If you or anyone you know needs assistance, please phone the chapel house on 01546 60 2380 and I will set this up for you. If you are willing to help others, please again let me know. Fr. Ronald

    Weekly Offering

    A number of parishioners have been in touch about how they might still be able to contribute a weekly offering during the suspension of Sunday Mass. 

    There are 2 main options: 

    • You may wish to set up a Standing Order with the parish. If you have online banking this can be done easily from your own home and a number of parishioners have already decided to do this. If you are interested in this please get in touch with me and I’ll give you the parish’s bank details. 

    • You may wish to save up whatever it is you normally put into the offertory and put it all in once we have public mass again. 

    If the current lockdown period is extended, we may need to look at further options as it’s the offertory collection that keeps the parish afloat. I would be happy to discuss further with anyone who may have other suggestions.  

    With thanks for your continued prayers and generosity, particularly at this difficult time,              Fr. Ronald
