Bishop Toal Bishop Joseph arrived home safely to Roy Bridge on Friday evening after a long journey by train from Spain. Because of the surgery to his eye, he was advised by the surgeon not to fly because of of the pressurisation inside planes. We hope bishop  Joseph will get an opportunity to take things easy before  the Holy Week services in the Cathedral. Although he had to rest for several weeks in Salamanca, he was still able to attend to a lot of his diocesan business by computer. In Hospital Joe Smith had major surgery in Raigmore Hospital last week, and thankfully he appears to be making good progress.  Helen visited him on Wednesday, and he was out of the high dependency unit and back in the ward—and looking very well. We will keep Joe very much in our prayers at Mass this weekend.  Joe enjoys reading, so I sent him the Bulletin and The Tablet (a Church affairs magazine) to help him keep in touch.
