Bishop Hugh would like to extend an invitation to you to the Pluscarden Pilgrimage which takes place on Sunday, 25th June. This year’s theme is Celebrating Altar Servers.
Arrangements are well underway for the pilgrimage and the events that are planned will provide a perfect opportunity for relaxing in the grounds of the Abbey, with a chance to meet people from other parishes within the Diocese. Parishioners are encouraged to bring their own picnics; however, refreshments will also be available from 12noon in the refreshment tent with Mass starting at 15:00.
13:00 – Exposition in the Lady Chapel until 14:30
13:00 – Individual confessions in the parlours at St. Benedict’s Retreat until 14:30
15:00 – Principal Mass of the day
At the conclusion of the mass, which Bishop Hugh will lead alongside priests from across the diocese, there will be a Marian procession to the garden in front of St. Benedict’s Retreat, weather permitting.
An optional Pilgrimage Walk will begin from Greyfriars Convent, Elgin at 10:00 (9 miles) or Torrieston Walks at 13:15 (1.5miles).
