Father Tony MacDonald - arrangements for Requiem Mass
Father Tony MacDonald - arrangements for Requiem Mass

Given Father Tony’s love of Lourdes, we thought it would be appropriate to post some of the Funeral details on this website, as we prepare to say farewell to Father Tony.

Below, you will find details of the arrangements from Monday through to Wednesday, including the Requiem Mass.

Please join with us in prayer for Father Tony over the course of the next few days.

Monday 1st August, 7pm

Reception of Fr Tony’s Remains into St Margaret’s in South Queensferry  by Monsignor Francis Canon Kerr, Dean of the City of Edinburgh, followed by the Rosary.

Tuesday 2nd August

The Church will be open from early morning for private prayer.  Rosary at 7pm.

Wednesday 3rd August, 12 noon

Requiem Mass offered by Archbishop Cushley, thereafter to Queensferry Cemetery for burial.  

There will be speakers outside in the piazza for those who are unable to get into the Church due to space constraints.  

Revd David Cameron from the nearby Church of Scotland has also offered the use of his Church as an overflow where it is hoped that pictures and sound from the Requiem Mass will be broadcast,

For those who are unable to attend, there are also plans to broadcast the Funeral Mass over the internet. Assuming the technology works, you will be able to access this from a link which will be made available nearer the time on the St Margaret’s Parish website -
