Father Jim McCruden RIP

Father Jim, the Roman Catholic Priest at St Joseph’s Callander died last week having bravely fought a long-illness. A genial presence in the town and a good friend to St Andrews Church, he will be sorely missed. Our prayers particularly for the congregation at St Joseph’s. May he rest in God’s peace.

Twelfth night chores

Many thanks to the teams from both parishes who in the last week have cleared away Christmas trees and decorations: much appreciated.
