Masses outside Lerwick

At present there is only one regular Mass outside of Lerwick: Voe Kirk, 5 miles south of Brae. It is hoped to say Mass on the islands (Fetlar, Yell, Unst, Papa Stour, Fair Isle) in the summer months. The priest is also available for Mass anywhere in Shetland where a congregation of at least four can be assured. Please give the priest at least one week's notice of your request so that week day Masses in Lerwick can be rescheduled.
