World Meeting of Families

This year’s World Meeting of Families takes place in Rome from the 22-26th June. Pope Francis has asked us to join him in prayer and celebration, especially during next weekend. The theme of the World Meeting of Families this year is Family Love: a Vocation and a Path to Holiness. A prayer card has been produced and is available for all parishioners. Please take one.

Rev Philip Bua

On Tuesday, in St. Columba’s Cathedral, Oban, Bishop Brian McGee will ordain Rev Philip Bua as a priest of Argyll & the Isles. This is a joyful occasion for our Diocese and I ask you to pray for Rev Philip.

Next Weekend and Following

Bishop Brian will be in Glencoe, Taynuilt and Mingarry for next weekend’s Masses. Fr Philip will be taking over the following two weekends (the 2nd/3rd and 9th/10th July). On the 15th July, Fr Joseph Udoh MSP will arrive in Glencoe to take up residence as parish priest of Glencoe and Mingarry.

Fr Roddy

It is this week when I move from being parish priest in Glencoe, Mingarry and Taynuilt and take up my new appointment as parish priest of Rothesay.

I would like to thank all parishioners for your support and help since I moved here from Lewis and Harris. An odd time, since the overwhelming majority of my stay here has been affected by the pandemic.

You have my prayers, my thanks for my time here and my best wishes for the future.
