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
Rule-obsessed Pharisees complained that Jesus ‘welcomes sinners and eats with them’. So, who are ‘sinners’? The word commonly used in the Gospels for sin is ‘hamartia’ which refers to an arrow falling short of the target.
