Nine children from the parishes of Morar, Mallaig and Arisaig made their First Holy Communion at St Cumin’s, Morar, earlier this month.

Parish Priest Father Stanislaw Pamula told the Lochaber Times: ‘It was a wonderful day, awaited for a long time due to Covid. Having such a great number of children and their families clearly presents the vibrant community in the Rough Bounds,’ he added.

‘Eucharist was followed by a lovely spread in the sunshine organised by parents and parishioners.’

Father Stan also expressed his gratitude to Lindsay Murray who prepared the children.

It marked the last class of Catechism for Lindsay, as her successor Lilian Young takes over. Father Stan explained: ‘Lilian is Mexican by origin and is married locally. It is a great opportunity as the next class will not only share the Highland heritage but also witness experience of Catholicism from beyond.’
