Rector Bulletin week commencing 22nd February 2016


Isobel Ritchie

Isobel will be moving to Woodside, Muthill in early March. Isobel and her late husband Alastair have been regular worshippers at St Andrew’s for a great number of years. We shall though look forward to seeing Isobel from time to time both in Callander and Muthill.

Sunday 6th March

Bishop’s Visit

Bishop David will be preaching and celebrating at both churches. The BCP service normally held on the first Sunday at St Andrew’s will be postponed until the following Sunday 13th March. In the hope of warmer weather, Sunday Services will from that Sunday revert to the church as opposed to the Hall.

St Andrew’s Tree

Plans for the felling of the tree are in the course of being finalised.

Sunday 28th February 2016 3rd Sunday of Lent

 Almighty God,
whose most dear Son went not up to joy but first he suffered pain,
and entered not into glory before he was crucified:
mercifully grant that we, walking in the way of the cross,
may find it none other than the way of life and peace;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
