Rest in Peace Canon Roddy Johnston.

Dear sisters and brothers in Christ,
I regret to inform you that Canon Roddy Johnston died this morning, Saturday 16th March, in the Belford Hospital, Fort William. May he rest in peace. His family were with him and he received wonderful pastoral and spiritual care from his fellow clergy. I thank them for their kindness and dedication.
 
No funeral arrangements have yet been made but Fr Roddy’s wishes were that his Requiem Mass be celebrated in St Columba’s Cathedral, Oban and that he would be interred in Glen Nevis Cemetery. As soon as arrangements have been agreed I will inform you.
 
The suddenness of his illness had been a shock for us all. This will be particularly true for his parishioners in St Andrew’s Parish on the Isle of Bute. Let us pray for Fr Roddy, his family, his friends and for each other.
