On Sunday 24 September Archbishop Mario Conti visited the Monastery with a pilgrim group he is leading. The pilgrims represent the Scottish Lieutenancy of the Knights and Dames of the Holy Sepulchre. This is a Catholic Charity, founded by Bl. Pope Pius IX, especially for the support and relief of Christians in the Holy Land.
The Archbishop presided at the Sunday Conventual Mass, singing it in Latin according to their custom. The Knights and Dames came into Choir for that, and afterwards gathered for a group photograph with members of the Pluscarden community.
