The relics of Saint Bernadette


This autumn, the UK will host a visit of the relics of St Bernadette.  They will be brought to Scotland from Saturday 24 September to Saturday 1 October; and will be situated in Carfin Grotto which is Scotland's national shrine to Our Lady of Lourdes. 

A National Pilgrimage will take place on Sunday 25 September, starting at 3pm.  


Then, each Diocese in Scotland will lead a day of Masses, ceremonies and events.  The allocated day for the Archdiocese of St Andrews & Edinburgh (along with the Diocese of Aberdeen) is Thursday 29 September

The programme for the day on Thursday 29 September is detailed below. We hope that you will be able to join us in Carfin Shrine for this unique celebration
