The St Andrews Community of Aberdeen and the RC Diocese of Aberdeen is pleased to announce that in September 2019, the relics of St. Therese of the Child Jesus and of the Holy Face, otherwise known as ‘the Little Flower,’ will make a tour of Scotland. In a Roman Catholic context, this is a wonderful grace for our country, an opportunity for faith, hope and charity to be rekindled in our hearts through the powerful intercession of ‘little Therese,’ as she asked to be called.
