Deacon Willy McQuillan was recently introduced to Pope Francis at the Vatican.

Prior to the meeting of the Scottish Bishops with the Pope, the Bishops and Scots seminarians celebrated Mass at the Tomb of St Peter in St Peter's Basilica. After Mass, the Seminarians were received by the Pope. It's not known if the Pope offered them a dram from the bottle of malt whisky he was presented with, but it looks like Willy has his eye on it!

Willy will be ordained a priest in St. Margaret's Church on the 3rd of July 2019. Please remember him and our other seminarians in your prayers.
