    of Kilninian and Kilmore was established This parish included all the north part of Mull The rest of the island to the south became the Parish of Ross Around 1720 Ross was divided into the three parishes known as Kilfinichen and Kilvickeon and the Parish of Torosay During the early part of the 18th century there were three parishes Kilninian and Kilmore covering the north of the island Kilfinichen and Kilvickeon including Ross of Mull and Iona and the parish of Torosay These parishes remain today Ministers At that time life as a minister was hard They lived in small heather thatched cottages with earthen floors A minister s work was physically demanding and unremitting with a very small remuneration which was partly paid in oats or barley Landowners or heritors as they were known were responsible for the stipend As well as taking church services a minister had to attend meetings visit his flock regularly and in the early days perform baptisms or marriages often in the home Since towns and villages were scattered over a wide area and there were few tracks or bridges this took up much of his time and energy Mediaeval chapels were used for worship and they were nearly always in a bad state of repair dark damp and dirty Service attendance was compulsory and in many places there were two services on a Sunday If there was a bell it was rung three times once before the service a second time as the congregation arrived and the final time when the minister entered As few people could read a precentor read the psalms and led the singing with the congregation following Burial Grounds Church History in Brief Churches Baptist Church Tobermory Bunessan Parish Church Catholic Church Tobermory Catholic House of Prayer Iona Cill
