Father Tony MacDonald
Father Tony MacDonald

It was with great sadness that we learned of the passing of Father Tony Macdonald on Monday evening.


It is difficult to capture the tremendous impact that Fr Tony had on the lives of so many people - this is especially the case with the Lourdes community.


Fr Tony was a ‘regular’ on the Lourdes Pilgrimage and was Chaplain to both the Hospitalite Committee and to the supported pilgrims in the Saint Frai.  Latterly, he supported our sick Pilgrims in a very special way as his health began to fail and he was cared for in the Saint Frai along with his fellow sick pilgrims.


His friendship, warmth and committment to all pilgrims was incredible and he always had time for others.  Most people will remember his amazing sense of humour which was evident even in the midst of pain and suffering.


In the days and weeks to come, we will have a chance to refflect on his life and give thanks to God for this wonderful man.  The Requiem Mass will be held at 12 noon on 3rd August in St Margaret’s, South Queensferry.

Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him and may he rest in peace.  Amen.

Our Lady of Lourdes.  Pray for him.

Saint Bernadette.  Pray for him.

Saint Margaret.  Pray for him.
