Join the Rosary Stronghold this month of May
Pope Francis has invited the entire Universal Church to participate in a great Rosary Mission to plead before the throne of God for an end to the coronavirus pandemic and for the healing for the wounds this pandemic has caused in the hearts of individuals, families and nations.
The May 2021 Rosary Stronghold Mission will unite with the Rosary Mission of the Holy Father to the Universal Church. Read more >>>
Bishop John Keenan, vice-President of the Scottish Catholic Bishops Conference explains how you can be involved...

Each night at 8.00pm there will be the Rosary – to Jesus through Mary led from a different Parish/Shrine (see the on-line links above). This will lead into three important National Days of Prayer:
1. Monday May 24th – Feast of Mary, Mother of the Church We invite you to support a Rosary Day of Prayer for our young people and for the Mission of our Schools, Youth Associations / Groups / Projects, our Young People and for Families.
2. Sunday May 30th – Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity We will host a National Rosary Relay Rally throughout the Dioceses of Scotland, Wales and England. Once again we would greatly appreciate the Bishops, Priests and lay faithful of each Diocese taking up a Rosary Hour, which we would notify, and to encourage the parishes and peoples of the Diocese to unite around their Bishop in intercession for the Rosary Mission intentions and for the needs of their particular Diocese.
3. Monday May 31st – Feast of the Visitation – Bishop John Keenan will host a Crowning Rosary online at 8.00pm, in thanksgiving for the graces received from the Lord Jesus through the powerful intercession of Our Lady of the Rosary during the May 2021 Rosary Mission.
Mary’s Meals – Pray in May
In this month dedicated to Our Lady we invite you to join us in praying for the work of Mary’s Meals, a mission carried out in Our Lady’s name to feed children a daily school meal in some of the world’s poorest communities. This meal brings children into the classroom where they can get an education, offering hope of a better future. Our work began with prayer, and prayer has sustained our rapid growth - from feeding 200 children in 2002 to feeding over 1.8 million children today. Please join us in praying for:
Fr Maximilian Nwosu, CCE
Fr James Anyaegbu, CCE
Dear Parishioners and Friends,
Greetings from St Mary's Presbytery, Beauly.

Please read the Bulletin/Newsletter for the 6th Sunday of Easter, Year B and the Week following
Weekday masses 10:00am in the Parish room at the Presbytery. (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday).
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.
