Last Saturday (8th June), almost 50 of our parishioners, including Canon Kelly, enjoyed a one - day pilgrimage to the impressive St. Patrick’s Church in Edinburgh, where they celebrated an uplifting Mass and were given a very warm welcome by the parish priest, Father Desmond Keegan, and by some of his Parish team. St Patrick’s is the National Shrine of the Venerable Margaret Sinclair, and the church also houses a small museum area containing photographs and personal items of both Margaret and some members of her family. If you are in Edinburgh, pay a visit to St. Patrick’s and learn a bit more about this special young woman who is hopefully on the road to beatification and possibly to eventual canonisation. You will be impressed. After Mass , the local Parish team provided our pilgrims with an excellent service of tea, coffee and home baking which was much appreciated. There then followed a visit to the very pleasant town of Peebles with free time to take in the local shops and riverside walks in the warm sunshine. The pilgrimage ended with an exceptional “high tea “ at Peebles Hydro and a wonderful day was had by all. A vote of thanks to all who took part in the organising of a memorable pilgrimage. Watch out for next year’s!!
