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 scriptures today are about life and about death. In the midst of a world with so much death, we believe in a God of life. Jesus says to Martha: “I am the resurrection and the life.” We are invited to implement God’s vision of life. Jesus says: “Lazarus, come out.” Jesus says to those around him: “Untie him and let him go.” Our contemporary world needs us, the people of God, to respond to Jesus who invites us out of our tombs and into freedom. Freedom to respond to the needs of others. Freedom to let go of everything that keeps us from being fully alive.
