Parish Information Update – Coronavirus

Dear All.

As you know Bishop Hugh has instructed us, following Government advise, to close the Church until further notice.  Please note the following:

  • Fr. Damian can be contacted on 07756441169.
  • You can make an Act of Spiritual Communion at Home by making the Sign of the Cross, following the Readings of the Day, and reciting the Prayer, ‘My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.  I love you above all things and I desire to receive you into my Soul.   Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.  I embrace You as if you were already there and unite myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you’.
  • To follow Mass Online please go to the Diocesan Website, and read ‘Mass Online: Practical Help’.
  • Funerals can still take place, under conditions that will be outlined to you.
  • To continue to support the Parish you can set up a Direct Debit.  Please contact the Parish Treasurer, Mr Phil McBride for further information (details on the attached PDF).  Alternately, if you have weekly envelopes you can safely post them at the Parish House.
  • To support the Lenten Appeal make a donation on the Website, or by phone 0141-3545555. 
  • You can follow the parish on facebook, St. Mary’s RC Parish Nairn and on the Website,


These are challenging times for us all but above all we place our trust in God.  Please do not hoard as it is unchristian and above all let us pray for one another, for those suffering from Coronavirus and those who have died. 

May God Bless Us All.  Fr. Damian.
