At the beginning of Advent 2015 I launched an Appeal for the Bursary Fund. This covers the costs of our seminarians, who are training to be priests for our diocese. As we now have seven seminarians the costs are high.
I am pleased to let you know we have now reached £50,000 along with a few monthly standing orders through your kind donations. I am most grateful for these contributions.
The Appeal leaflets, which have greater detail, are still available in the parishes and to download here. If you have not already read one, I ask you please to give it some consideration over the Easter season.
With all good wishes for a Blessed Easter
Rt Rev Hugh Gilbert
Bishop of Aberdeen
