Peace be with you. Greetings from St Mary's Presbytery Beauly.
Hope you are doing well and safe in your home. Let us keep praying for and looking after one another.
Enclosed is the Bulletin/Newsletter for the 26th Sunday/Week in Ordinary Time, Year A.
Remember to come to the Church with your nose/mouth masks and use the sanitizing hand gel at the entrance of the Church as you enter and leave the Church.
We will have the celebration of the First Holy Communion of our children on the 4th October, 2020.
There will be exposition of the Blessed Sacrament on Tuesday in St Mary's Beauly from 12noon-1:00pm.
Remember to register for mass attendance if you have not done so already.
St Peter and St Benedict, Fort Augustus: Mass at 10:00am (live streamed)
There will also be exposition of the Blessed Sacrament at Our Lady and St Bean Marydale, Cannich on Wednesdays - at 12:00 - 1:00pm.
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 September: Respect for the planet’s resources
The full text of the prayer intention is below:
'We are squeezing out the planet’s goods. Squeezing them out, as if the earth were an orange.
Countries and businesses from the global north have enriched themselves by exploiting the natural resources of the south, creating an “ecological debt.” Who is going to pay this debt?
In addition, this “ecological debt” is increased when multinationals do abroad what they would never be allowed to do in their own countries. It’s outrageous.
Today, not tomorrow; today, we have to take care of Creation responsibly.
Let us pray that the planet’s resources will not be plundered, but shared in a just and respectful manner.
No to plundering; yes to sharing.'
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)
