Bishop Brian’s Pastoral Visit to Barra

I’ve just finished a five-day pastoral visit to the Isle of Barra. It has been a blessing to join parishioners in prayer for Sunday Mass and at other times. I have enjoyed chatting with people in their homes, their work and while walking around. I am grateful to the schools for arranging that I spent time with all the pupils in the High School as well as the two Primaries. Backed up by Fathers John Paul, Emmanuel and Etienne, I also blessed my first fishing boat!
