The November/December 2019 Diocesan Newsletter is now available.
In it, Bishop Mark writes…
Well what a month September was.
One Ordination to the Priesthood, three ordinations to the Diaconate and the rededication of St Columba’s Brora, we had full churches for all of these events and we met lots of people who are interested in our church and hopefully all of us can ensure that this interested can be encouraged by warm and inviting worship in our churches.
The beginning of October has also been busy, we said farewell to our Diocesan Registrar as George MacWilliam reached retirement and at the service giving thanks for his ministry among us we also welcomed the Bishop of Quebec and his team on a brief visit to catch up with us all.
This visit from overseas links was a foretaste of what will happen next summer when we welcome bishops and archbishops from across the Anglican Communion in the run up to the Lambeth Conference, I will report on this more fully soon.
I would like to ask you to remember our link dioceses in the intercessions in church. We have a long-standing link with Quebec and with the Diocese of Tuam in Ireland and they hold us in prayer weekly, we should remember to do the same.
I hope to catch up with many of you through the next few months.
