Adjustments

Since Sunday Mass in Inverurie starts at 10:30, I have to leave right after Sunday Mass at Westhill. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to stay after Sunday Mass to chat as much as I’d love to! However, I will try my best to be available 30 minutes before Sunday Mass. Additionally, I will be available on Mondays and Thursdays before weekday Masses, including sacramental confessions.

If you are willing to travel to Inverurie, there will be more opportunities to arrange a meeting.
