Welcome home to Fr. Colin MacInnes who has returned to the Diocese today after 32 years of distinguished priestly service in Ecuador.

In his final newsletter from his parish in Guayaquil Fr. Colin wrote:

“Home has a special meaning for all of us and on 26th of September I will be making my way home. I will be saying a final “goodbye” to Ecuador which has been my home for the past 32 years and has become part of my life. It is understandable that I should have “agri/dulce” (sweet and sour) feelings but decisions have to be taken and love of my diocese and health have been fundamental factors in the decision I have taken. You will keep me in your prayers.”

We wish Fr. Colin a happy return, a good rest and a painless re-entry to life in Scotland.
