Sunday July 7th. 2013
Saturday was a very special day for Paulo and Elspeth Beradelli when over sixty of their family, relations and friends joined them at St. Margaret’s for the christening of their daughter, Livia Rosa, and also for the completion of the baptismal ceremonies for their son,  Giorgio. Giorgio was only  a few days old when he had to be rushed to Yorkhill Hospital where the priest was waiting to baptise him before his surgery. It was so nice that he shared the baptismal ceremonies with his sister and received the special anointing of chrism and also his baptismal candle. The godparents were Mary Anderson, Amy Fulford and Dr. Chiara Berardelli,  their aunt, who also played the organ for the hymns. May God bless these two lovely children, and especially Giorgio who is always in our prayers  and in the prayers the Sisters of St. Joseph  in Sydney at the tomb of St. Mary MacKillop. There was a wonderful  buffet afterwards at Auchendaul on the lawns outside Paulo and Elspeth's home where everyone enjoyed  true highland hospitality
John and Margaret Muncie recently became the proud owners of a new collie puppy whom they call Gille, gaelic for a boy. John and Margaret  published and edited the monthly magazine Lochaber Life which was so popular for many years, and Lochaber News were delighted to become its new owners. One of the  articles which appeared regularly was written by Margaret about her collie dog What Katy does, and it had lots of  devoted fans who were so disappointed when Katy  retired. However, Katy has given a really warm welcome to Gille,  so we hope there may be a new series of articles in the
near future about What Katy and Gille does. Many dog lovers would be delighted to see it restored, and you can be assured that there will be some high jinks, for Gille is a very lively and loveable young boy. He has already has given Katy a new lease of life, and she might just consider coming out of retirement!  John and Margaret are both retired teachers so Gille is assured of a good education
