On Sunday 11th of June, St Thomas’ Deanery will be taking a pilgrimage to the shrine of Saint Margaret Queen of Scotland in Dunfermline.
The day will include opportunities to visit St. Margaret’s Memorial Church which houses her relic; the Abbey where she was finally laid to rest in 1250; St. Margaret’s Cave and the famous tower where it is thought she was married to King Malcolm III.
A procession is to be led by Archbishop Cushley with the relic of St. Margaret through the streets of Dunfermline to the Memorial Church where he will concelebrate Mass. A small group hired a minibus last year and were greatly uplifted by the whole experience. There will be a covered area in Pittencrieff Park where pilgrims can meet up and congregate for their lunch. This year there is a focus on prayer, asking for St Margaret to intercede for us so that God’s will may be done in Scotland in these uncertain times.
