The Jesuit community has had a number of visitors in the last months, who have helped out in the parish as well as enjoying the delights of an Edinburgh summer.   Here are a few of them:

Fr Michael Coutts SJ

Fr Michael was with us for the month of July.  He works in the parish of Our Lady of Lourdes in Toronto, Canada, and also celebrates a regular televised Mass on Canadian TV.




Fr Tim Byron SJ

Fr Tim was until last year the chaplain at St Ignatius’ College, Enfield, in north London.  He has just returned from his Tertianship (the “last stage” of Jesuit formation) in the Philippines and is with us for the summer until he moves to his next assignment.
