A Thanksgiving service

The Lord Lieutenant Mrs Janet Bowen will be in attendance and the address will be given by Rev Roddy Macrae the Church of Scotland Minister from Brora who was the first part time youth worker for the Tain Youth Cafe YMCA.

Official invitations are to be posted to any volunteers who were with the Tain Youth Cafe YMCA at the start and they would be grateful if you could e-mail or drop in any names and addresses to Graham Nutt as he is keen to not miss anyone out.

It would also help us out if people could The Youth Cafe know that they plan to attend, for catering purposes.

Diocesan News – January 2019

The January Edition of the Diocesan Newsletter.

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).

Blessings

+Mark
