5 July 2020 – 14th Sunday of the Year Ordinary Time  - Year A



Following the Statement from the Bishop's Conference, there will be no public Masses in St. Ninian's until future notice. There will be no weekend or weekday Masses.

Sadly the Church will now be locked on instructions from the Bishop.  If you wish a time of private prayer we suggest you visit the shrine to Our Lady at the rear of the Church.

Fr John is unable to carry out home visits unless someone is dying.

You will have heard that Places of Worship may soon open for private prayer.   St Ninian’s will not be opening but St Mary’s will be open for a limited time on certain days so please check on St Mary’s website to confirm:  www.stmarysinverness.co.uk.  You will also find information on the online Masses from St Mary’s.

Perhaps our extensive grounds will allow the celebrating of Mass in the open air one day.


Newsletters are available at the top of the steps outside the door.  Please do take one and pass on to anyone who may be housebound or unable to get out.  Many thanks.

Fr John will hear Confessions on an appointment only basis so if you would like Confession please ring Fr John on 01463 232136 to arrange a mutually convenient time and place (If the weather is good this may be in the Church grounds) whilst still maintaining social distancing.

Fr John is available to carry out garden visits but is not permitted to bring Communion to anyone unless in danger of death.   If you would like Fr John to visit please phone 01463 232136 to arrange a suitable time.

We pray that soon we will be able to resume our worship together,  meanwhile Fr John continues to say private Mass every morning in a locked church for all those who seek spiritual Communion.


If anyone has anything for inclusion in the newsletter please either leave a message on the church answerphone or email to: Ninian@saintninians.org.uk
