Offers the chance to join a Pilgrimage to Whithorn

Led by Bishop Gregor and David Wostenholm

In about 400 AD St. Ninian came from Tours to set up the first mission amongst the Picts, building a monastery at Whithorn, having landed at the Isle of Whithorn. As he reached out from his “White House” at Whithorn, he also spent hours in prayer at his cave on the beach.  Our Pilgrimage is a chance to follow in his footsteps……

Transport will be arranged where possible, to arrive around mid-day at St. Martin & St Ninian’s Church, where the Eucharist will be celebrated. After lunch (please bring a packed lunch), the options will be to explore the Whithorn Museum and Iron-age Roundhouse, or for the hardy, to scramble over the rocky beach to St Ninian’s cave, before leaving for home about 4.30 pm.

The pilgrimage is open to everyone, so please bring a friend and spread the word.

Will all those interested please notify Jennifer FitzGibbon  at j2fg@aol.com, or Christine at the Diocesan Office, 5 St. Vincent Place, Glasgow, G1 2DH Tel: 0141 221 5720/2694 by 20th July.

Please indicate if you will require/could provide transport.
