New Dawn in Scotland Catholic Conference


2ND – 6TH  July

St Andrews , Madras College

An action packed week for all ages

Join our many priests, religious and laity for a 5 day journey
where we travel deeper into our Catholic faith 
with lots of fun and great music.


This is the 9th year of New Dawn in Scotland Catholic Pilgrimage Conference held in St. Andrews, Madras College, Kilrymont Road, KY16 8DE.

From the opening Mass until the closing ceilidh, the week is packed with an excellent input from gifted religious and lay people with the aim of refreshing and re-invigorating our Catholic faith.

There is daily Mass and talks on a variety of topics, and workshops which address a whole range of issues relevant to the daily living out of our faith in difficult times. An exciting programme of events for children and youth is also offered.

New Dawn started in Walsingham in 1987 and has now spread to many countries. New Dawn’s charism is to display the Catholic Church in all her splendour. We want to offer you a warm welcome at this year’s conference and help you to experience more of the treasures of our faith. Our teams of well experienced ministry leaders will be there to serve you in the many ministries at the conference, including: – Children, Youth, Adult, Prayer, Music and Liturgy.

St Andrews Pilgrimage and Rosary Procession
in honour of Our Lady and St Andrew


If you can’t make all or part of the conference, then please join the many parishes on Thursday 5th July for our annual St Andrews Pilgrimage and Rosary Procession in honour of Our Lady and St Andrew which will follow the statue of Our Lady of Aberdeen and a relic of St Andrew through the streets of St. Andrews, culminating with Mass in the ancient Cathedral ruins.

This year will be a special year as the 5th July is the exact date of the 700 years anniversary of the consecration of St Andrews Cathedral.
