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'

31 May, Pentecost Sunday, Year A

Reflection
Pentecost celebrates the fullness of the Spirit and the great gathering of nations. It brings the Easter season to its conclusion. The Risen Lord has been exalted to his rightful place next to God and he has sent his Spirit to fill the earth with God's power. The world is charged with divine energy; it needs but a spark to ignite it with life and with excitement. This vitality explodes into the extraordinary. Tongues are loosed and speech overflows its linguistic constraints; charismatic gifts flood the valleys of human habitation; barred doors are burst open and frightened hearts are calmed. The Spirit of the Lord fills the whole world.
