700 year anniversary of the consecration of St Andrews Cathedral.

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

Watch  a video of the St Andrews Pilgrimage and Rosary Procession in honour of Our Lady and St Andrew.

Door’s Open Day

Saturday 29th Sept. 1-6pm

The Special theme for Doors Open 2018 is the Year of Young People, and so we are especially keen to have school age and student volunteers. There are lots of jobs to do, and there will be plenty of support available.
No one young or old needs to commit for the whole afternoon – an offer to help for an hour is enough for  us – but we bet you will want to stay longer.

Please contact Liz Brown (brownedin@btinternet.com) if you wish to join our fantastic team of welcomers and guides.

JULY EVENTS

Lauriston Jesuit Centre

Admission by Donation.

Br. Guy Consolmagno SJ
Director of the Vatican Observatory
Thursday 19th July, 7.30pm

Guy Consolmagno is both a Jesuit brother and a planetary scientist at the Vatican Observatory, splitting his time between the meteorite collection in Rome and the Vatican telescope in Arizona. Thanks to his Vatican connections, his work has sent him around the world several times to dozens of countries and every continent (including a meteorite hunting expedition to Antarctica). In this talk he will share some of those adventures, and reflect on the larger meaning of our common experience as scientists… not only what we do, but why we do it.
