The Apostle to the Apostles

On Monday , 22 July, we celebrate the Feast of St. Mary Magdalene, the Apostle to the Apostles. We give thanks for the life and witness of this courageous woman. We give thanks for that early Easter morning when Mary, in a garden of all places, became the first witness to the Resurrection.

Our Eucharistic prayer tells us that 'Worship and praise belong to you, Father, in every place, and at all times.' So in the spirit of this devotion, and in honour of Mary Magdalene, we will be holding a Eucharist on 22 July at 11 am on the Barvas Beach. We will meet on the machair and decide on the location when all are gathered.  All are welcome.
