Marie-Ann Campbell Marie-Ann had surgery in Edinburgh Royal Infirmary on Wednesday, and thankfully the news of her recovery is excellent, and the operation appears to have been very successful. Mass was said for her on Wednesday morning, and Bishop Toal also remembered her in his Mass in St. Margaret's on Friday. We look forward to hearing further news of her progress and we hope it may not be long until she is back home to convalesce at Alt Mor.  In the meantime, we keep Marie- Ann very close in our masses and prayers. Cille Choirill Mass in a fortnight’s time, June 30th, at 3 p.m. There will be Mass in Cille Choirill on the day following the feast of Saints Peter and Paul, June 30th. I would be grateful if parishioners would let their relations and friends who live at  distance know about the Mass. I will notify Mgr MacKinnon and Fr MacAulay about the Mass as there is always a good number come from Fort William and Caol who have relatives at rest in Cille Choirill. Summer Solstice - June 21st, longest day  After Friday,  we are heading back to winter! Although we have had some good days, we are still waiting anxiously for a nice prolonged period of sunshine to warm us up. Let’s hope we may still have to get our top factor number sun tan cream to prevent sunburn!
