Fr Chris Doig celebrates First Mass in his home parish

On Wednesday 21st June, Fr Gregory Umunna welcomed Fr Chris Doig, a son of the parish at St Stephen’s, Blairgowrie, as the newly ordained priest returned to his home parish to celebrate a Votive Mass for the Solemnity of St Joseph. The parish had proudly produced four priests since it opened in 1856 – the last one was 104 years ago.
