Inspired by the Chartres pilgrimage, the event incorporates the Traditional Latin Mass and devotions, with Sung Mass offered daily in the Extraordinary Form. Chaplaincy is provided by the Sons of the Most Holy Redeemer from Papa Stronsay, who lead a broad programme incorporating the Rosary, hymns, & spiritual talks. Particular highlights include a Holy Hour with Pontifical Benediction in the Chapel Royal, Falkland Palace, & Holy Mass at St Andrew’s former shrine in the cathedral ruins.The Two Shrines Pilgrimage 2018

The Two Shrines Pilgrimage is a three day pilgrimage on foot from Edinburgh to St Andrews, walking from the modern-day shrine of Scotland’s patron saint to his former shrine in the ruined mediaeval cathedral founded to house his relics.

The ultimate end of the pilgrimage is to promote the re-conversion of Scotland to the Catholic Faith; it is also a wonderful opportunity for participants of all ages and backgrounds to grow in personal faith & Christian fellowship and to step out of the hectic modern world.

The cost to participate in the pilgrimage is £90 with a part rate of £30 per day walked. Fees paid in full before 30 June are eligible for a discount of £10.
