In it, Bishop Mark writes…
My Dear Friends,
Happy New Year to you all.
As it is the new year I thought I would take this opportunity to let you know some of the times that I will be away in the next term.
I will be having my usual weeks in Edinburgh during January and February.
I am in Kenya for 5 days in February, attending an African Primates retreat, then I will be in Armagh for a couple of days attending the Regional Primates meeting.
In March there will be time spent in Glasgow as they and I seek a new bishop for the Diocese. We are also expecting the “Our Common Calling” group to be visiting us in the Highlands, they will be arranging a programme that will include visits to some of our churches.
In April I will be heading for Jerusalem and we will be there leading up to Palm Sunday returning home on the Wednesday in Holy Week, this will mean that the Chrism Mass this year will be at 11.30am in the Cathedral on MAUNDY THURSDAY (18th April).
