This is the annual tax tax the Monastery pays for Oran na Mara to the Local Council in Oban (we are in the Argyll and Bute County, which includes the Hebrides). This is the larger house, where the sisters live and where we welcome our pilgrims – both during our summer pilgrimages and for visits during the year.
This is not an optional tax and – to be honest – it weighs quite heavily on our shoulders. If at all possible, please consider helping us cover it.
Because this would release us of a year-long pressure, we shall remember you at the Altar for a full year.
May we all be blessed.
