From Father Maximilian Nwosu
Greetings from St Mary's Presbytery Beauly and may the Lord be with you.
This Sunday is the Feast of the Pentecost. We pray that the Holy Spirit will renew the face of the earth.
We are invited to join our diocese for the National Rosary Rally at 2:00pm as Pope Francis encourages us to pray the Rosary on this day. It is the last day of the Month of Our Lady.
Please find attached the Bulletin/Newsletter for the Pentecost Sunday/Week following and a reflection on Covid and its consequences by Sr Margaret Atkins. It might at least stimulate some thought.
There is a video "Catechesis on Pentecost" which the Bishop recorded and it is also available on the diocesan website, and on YouTube.
Please remember our parishes.
God bless your tremendous generosity and unparalleled commitment to our wonderful parishes thus far. Some of us have been so wonderful towards our parishes. It costs you nothing extra to Gift Aid, but helps our parishes even more. If you would like to support the maintenance of our parishes especially, during this time of lockdown, here are some different ways that the parishes can be assisted:
A regular Standing Order:
Please contact these persons as you make a consideration to help:
St Mary's Beauly
Our Lady & St Bean, Marydale, Cannich: Peter Macdonald
St Mary's Eskadale: Jessie Matheson
St Martin's Ullapool & St Maelrubha's Poolewe & Lochinver;
St Peter & St Benedict Fort Augustus:
Donations in an envelope, put through the box in the church.
During this period, we can make most of the benefactions and donations to the parish running/first account.
A re-evaluation of your level of giving. If every parishioner at Mass gave an extra £5 (two coffees at Costa or Starbucks..), it would make an enormous difference to the future of the parish!!
A Bequest, or gift left in a will, is an increasingly popular way of remembering your parish. All benefactors are remembered at our Masses.
Thank you for your consideration and continuing generosity and support to our parishes, they are immensely appreciated. Thank you for your consideration as we do well to keep up the work of God.
