Bishop Toal Bishop Toal has been appointed Apostolic Administrator of Motherwell diocese. Bishop Devine has resigned after reaching the age of 75. This means Bishop Joseph will take over Motherwell diocese until the end of the year until a new bishop is  appointed. This will be an immense amount of extra work for our bishop running two dioceses and travelling back and forward. He has asks us to remember him very specially in our prayers which we will do during the triduum of Masses this week, He hopes as many as possible will be present for the great Mass for St. Columba in Oban next Sunday at 5 p.m
 St. Margaret's was the scene of a lovely wedding on Saturday when Richard Maundrell and Lucy Cameron were married.   Richard is a Lieutenant-Colonel in the Grenadier Guards, a tutor at Sandhurst Military Academy, and served in Afghanistan, and Lucy is the daughter of Donald Angus Cameron of Lochiel and Lady Cecil. She was a flower girl at Prince Charles and Diana’s wedding.  Her god-mother, her Royal Highness, Princess Anne,  was one of the guests at the wedding. The church was filled to capacity with over 200 guests, among them was Sir Jackie Stewart, the world champion racing driver, who was a godparent to Zara Philips, Princess Ann’s daughter. The wedding service was conducted by Fr Tom,  the homily was given by the Rev Peter Rutherford, a former army chaplain and close friend of the groom., and the organist was Peter Rose. The reception took place afterwards at Achnacarry Castle. The magnificent flower arrangements in the church and the beautiful archway of flowers at the outside door, were the work of a Musselborough florist,  Laura Eberst. I am grateful to Margaret Sargent for the two lovely photographs and sending them so quickly to the Bulletin. I am sure the press will be after her for one of her photographs!
