Welcome

Welcome to the Catholic Parish of Applecross, we are a vibrant faithful and welcoming community. Visitors and new parishioners are always welcome to join us in celebrating the Eucharist. Our hope is that together we can continue to build the Kingdom of God, not only within our Parish community but within our society. We also hope that you will find information and resources that will help you personally and enable you to play a part in making Jesus real, loved and followed in whatever corner of the world you happen to be.

Hopefully together we will be able to walk the path that Christ calls us to and so fulfill the essence of the Rule of St Benedict, “The Love of Christ must come before all else”.

We hope you find our website helpful. We are open to any comments you would like to offer, that will help us more fully live out the mission of Christ in this part of the world.

'Rule of St Benedict - The Love of Christ, must come before all else'

Reflection
The invitation of Jesus is not to those who felt self-satisfied or perfect in their religious observance, but to those who did not ‘measure up’, who struggled with failure like Jesus himself at Capernaum, who were ‘weary and burdened’. Jesus’s invitation is deeply personal, but his promise of ‘rest’ is not for an easy life. It is the promise of eternal life in God.
