Bhileag 15th September 2019

Fr. Patrick McSorley: we warmly welcome Fr. Pat to the island to look after the weekend Masses. It’s been a wee while since Fr. Pat has been over and we hope that he has a pleasant time on the island and that the weather will be kind to him. Fr. Pat will leave on Monday morning.


Fr. John Paul: will return this coming Wednesday evening.


Eoligarry Vigil Mass: will be next Saturday 21st September at 4pm in St. Vincent’s.


Sacrament of Confession: Please note as well as Confession on Saturday morning  before the 10am Castlebay Mass and also before the Craigston Vigil Mass  there will now be an opportunity to go to Confession each Saturday afternoon (except the Saturday when the extra Vigil Mass is in Eoligarry)  in Northbay Church from 4.30pm-5pm. The Sacrament of Confession is an important Sacrament and we should be making more use of this Sacrament of healing- of humbling asking for God’s forgiveness for our sins.


Eucharistic Ministers: when Fr. John Paul returns he will once again be asking some parishioners to take on the role of being a Eucharistic Minister in their parish. Fr. John Paul wishes to thank those who have already said yes and soon there will be a meeting.


The Charity Mary’s Meals: wish to thank the people of Barra & Vatersay for recently buying raffle tickets and also handing in donations. The sum of £831 was raised. Moran Taing!
