It starts with the Feast of the Chair of St. Peter, 18 January, and ends with the Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul on 25 January. This week of prayer now involves churches of different denominations all over the world with the united intention that the prayer of Christ at the Last Supper may be fulfilled: Father, may they all be one as you and I are one. Pope Benedict has been very successful in advancing closer co-operation between the Orthodox Churches and the Catholic Church. At the repeated request of  Anglican bishops and clergy, Pope Benedict instituted the ordinariate which welcomes Anglican clergy and lay people into the Catholic Church as a corporate body, allowing them to keep much of their own liturgy. They have their own ordinary who has been invested with special powers by the Episcopal Conference, and most are married and are now ordained priests and helping in dioceses by saying Mass and administering the sacraments.  Join our 100 Club and help keep our churches nice and warm It’s this time of year once again when we renew our 100 Club membership.

The communities of Spean Bridge and Roy Bridge, and the whole of Lochaber, were shocked to hear the sad news that Spean Bridge Woollen Mill had been destroyed by fire. It was almost with disbelief that people came to witness the scene and find that the fire had ravaged the entire building and all its contents. The Woollen Mill had been so much part of Spean Bridge for generations, and one could not even begin to consider its loss to the village. Thanks to the excellent work of our local contractor, R.E. Campbell,  it was very quickly rebuilt, better. Spean Bridge Woollen Mill at the height of the blaze in the early hours of Wednesday morning, January 11, 2009
