Seminarian Coming to Shetland for Pastoral Placement

We are happy to hear that the bishop will be sending a seminarian from Scots College Rome to us for his pastorals during the summer vacation. The provisional dates are 2nd August to 16th September.

I will let him introduce himself:

"My name is Christopher Doig, I am a half-Scot-half-Pole, studying at the Pontifical Scots College in Rome. I was born in Perth and my family home is in a small town called Blairgowrie. I am currently in my fourth year and have received the ministry of acolyte. My main interests are hillwalking, reading, cooking and playing guitar."
