Big Tree Country - 8

As we celebrate the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, here is a photo of St Columba's Catholic Church, Dunkeld. It is in a most lovely setting, surrounded by many trees.

Sing the greatest joy of Mary
When on earth her work was done,
And the Lord of all creation
Brought her to his heavenly home:
Virgin Mother, Mary blessed,
Raised on high, and crowned with grace,
May your Son, the world's Redeemer,
Grant us all to see his face.

In case you are wondering, the red object to the left of the photo is not a statue - it is a scarecrow! I don't think it is modelled on the local bishop.

Happy Feast!
