Join the Confraternity

The Confraternity of St Ninian is a lay association and Scottish charity which exists to promote the re-conversion of Scotland to the Catholic Faith through pilgrimages incorporating the Extraordinary Form of the Mass and traditional devotions.

Membership is open to all who support the Confraternity’s aims, even if they are not personally able to participate in the Confraternity’s pilgrimages.  We greatly appreciate all the support we receive from members through their prayers and generous donations.
