Greetings from St Mary's Presbytery.
Hope we are doing well and keeping safe in our different locations and homes?
We keep praying for the well-being and safety of everyone.
May we continue in our Lenten practices and keep doing good & charitable deeds for our souls will find rest in God alone from whom comes our hope. (Psalm 62:6)
Please read the Bulletin/Newsletter for the 3rd Sunday of Lent Year B/Week following..
The Bishop has recorded a Catechesis on the Parable of the Good Samaritan. It is on the diocesan website and YouTube.
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.

Pope Francis' prayer intention for March seeks to highlight the joy that the Sacrament of Reconciliation brings, and reminds us that it’s a loving and merciful encounter between us and God.
It’s a message full of hope, in which he invites us to rediscover the power of personal renewal that the Sacrament of Confession has in our life. “Let us pray that we may experience the Sacrament of Reconciliation with renewed depth, to taste the forgiveness and infinite mercy of God,” Pope Francis asks. This month’s video opens with the Pope himself going to confession, “in order to be healed, to heal my soul.”
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)
