Quebec in the Highlands

Today we were delighted to welcome Bishop Bruce Myers and The Venerable Edward Simonton from the Anglican Diocese of Quebec.  +Bruce preached in Tain and Ven Edward in Dornoch.  In his address +Bruce told us about the scattered small congregations in his Diocese (nothing familiar there then:-)

He told us that when he first became Bishop, he put up a map of his Diocese and inserted a pin for each congregation.  He had without thinking about it used yellow pins and the 68 pins looked like mustard seeds scattered across the map.  How fitting was today’s Gospel –  “If you had faith the size of a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.” (Luke 17:6)

Little Red Riding Hood Piped in to Tea

This afternoon was the annual tea for the volunteers and supporters of the St Finnbarr’s Charities Shop.  40 people gathered in the Dornoch Social Club and were treated to a splendid afternoon tea prepared by a local Patisserie and Cafe.

The gathering was entertained by not one but two “well kent faces”, one who talked about the Northumbrian Small Pipes and played us a few lovely tunes:

The other demonstrated to us how familiar children’s stories have changed since we were all at school:

Needless to say a good time was had by all.  Thanks to everyone who made it such a lovely afternoon.

During proceedings, a presentation was made to Tom and Monica who have clocked up a large number of years between them ob St Finnbarr’s Vestry and who now will perhaps have more time for other activities:-)  We are all very grateful for what you have done over the years.
