Greetings from St Mary's Presbytery Beauly.
Hope we are doing well and keeping safe in our various homes?
We keep praying for the safety of everyone and for an end to this pandemic.
Please read the Bulletin/Newsletter for the 3rd Sunday of the Year B/Week following. The Sunday of the Word of God.
Also, please read the Message to Scotland’s Faith and Belief Communities from the Scottish Government.
As the churches are closed till the end of the month, so the celebration of the Mass will be livestreamed at 10:00am on Sundays.
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 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.
Please contact these persons as you make a consideration to help:
St Mary's Beauly: James Campbell
Our Lady & St Bean, Marydale, Cannich: Peter Macdonald
St Mary's Eskadale: Jessie Matheson
St Martin's Ullapool & St Maelrubha's Poolewe & Lochinver: Peter Jarosz, Irene MacDonald or Rosemary Baines
St Peter & St Benedict Fort Augustus:
Didi Findlay, Carmelita Aiston
During this period, we can make most of the benefactions and donations to the parish running/first account.
Thank you for your 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.

The video above gives you a flavour of the journey Father Max or Father James take each week to celebrate Holy Mass with the Catholic communities on the West Coast of Scotland. This was filmed on one of their journeys from Beauly to Ullapool, a distance of 47 miles. (filmed 4 years ago)
