Blessing of the Renovated St. Mary MacKillop Hall

The Newly refurbished St Mary MacKillop hall was officially opened on Wednesday 9th July 2021 by the Rt Rev Hugh Gilbert OSB Bishop of Aberdeen.  The work was made possible by parish fundraising and a generous donation from the Davidson Trust who support local charities and groups within the District of Nairn.  They were represented at the event by Chairman Iain Bain and secretart Will Cowie.  Work was carried out by Stuart Fox, with plastering done by parishioner Kevin Close free of charge.  Clan leader Iain MacGillivray provided a varied repertoir on the bagpipes comprising hymns, Scottish favourites including the Flower of Scotland and even the Australian National Anthem, Advance Australia Fair.  The sun shone brightly enabling a post blessing outdoor celebration in the gardens.
