Bhileag 21st July 2018

Fr. Emmanuel: we warmly welcome Fr Emmanuel back to the parish. It has been 10 weeks since he was last here. Over those 10 weeks Fr. Emmanuel has been looking after the parish of St. Mary’s in Fort William. We had hoped that he would return to the parish but Bishop Brian has now appointed him on a permanent basis to stay in the Lochaber area to work alongside Fr. David Connor as they look after the Churches and parishes of Fort William, Caol, Glenfinnan, Glenuig & Mingarry. Fr. Emmanuel will be at all the Sunday Masses this weekend and we will take our opportunity to say our own thanks to Fr. Emmanuel for helping in our island parishes since he arrived on the 26th  July in 2018. At the end of the Sunday Masses

Fr. Emmanuel will also say his own words of thanks to the parish. Fr. Emmanuel will head away on Tuesday mornings boat.


Fr. Philip Connor: this week we have a visiting Priest from  Lancaster Diocese -Fr. Philip Connor making his first trip to Barra for the week. We hope Fr. Philip enjoys his break.


Church Security: please note that sadly from now on we will be locking the Churches overnight. It was one of the lovely things about the Churches on the island- trying to keep them open but sadly some people don’t respect that. From now on the main Parish Churches of Castlebay & Northbay will be locked late in the evening and open first thing in the morning. We will also be locking the other three churches too. Thankfully nothing serious has happened  in any of the Churches but now we have to be  more preventative and more security conscious and so the Churches will need to be locked overnight. We all have to play our part in looking after our Churches- so please keep an eye on your own local church.


Ecclesiastical Students Fund: next Sunday there will be a special collection to support those who are studying for the Priesthood for the Diocese.


Eucharistic Ministers: Fr. John Paul will be approaching parishioners to ask if they would like to be Eucharistic Ministers in our parishes. Fr. John Paul is happy to be approached with any names too.
