VERY REV. ANGUS MACKINTOSH (1914-1933) was born at Lochaber on 19th April, 1873. He entered Blairs College in August, 1887, and five years later went to St. Peter's College. He was ordained priest on 29th May, 1898. After a year as a curate in St. Patrick's, Anderston, he was appointed Secretary to His Grace Archbishop Eyre. In 1901 he returned to St. Patrick's, where he remained until his appointment to Helensburgh in 1907. Seven years later he became parish priest of St. Paul's, where he served for nineteen years, being then sent to take charge of the important mission at Rutherglen. During his sojourn in Whiteinch, Canon Mackintosh was a member of Glasgow Education Authority and did invaluable work with the Scottish National Pilgrimage to Lourdes. He had a great love for the children of the parish and took a keen interest in amateur dramatics, producing many plays in the hall. Canon Mackintosh died in Rutherglen on 30th April, 1939. Like Father Lynch, he was 66 years of age and had been a priest for 41 years. The Solemn Requiem Mass was celebrated by his cousin, Rev. Donald A. Campbell, now Archbishop of Glasgow. R.I.P.
