The 2017 National Pilgrimage to Dunfermline in honour of St Margaret of Scotland took place on Sunday, June 11th and followed a similar format to previous successful events. Despite changeable weather throughout the day, hundreds of pilgrims gathered in Dunfermline for the 3rd (in recent times) National Pilgrimage of St. Margaret of Scotland. The procession which was led by Archbishop Cushley and included the relic of St. Margaret made its way from Pittencrieff Park through Bridge Street, High Street, East Port to St. Margaret's RC Memorial Church for the celebration of Mass.

This Pilgrimage Mass was concelebrated by Archbishop Cushley and a number of the local clergy and was streamed live to the crypt of St. Margaret's and to Carnegie Hall for those pilgrims who could not be accommodated within the Church. The Mass can be watched online on YouTube by clicking here.

We look forward to welcoming you in 2018 for the 4th St. Margaret's National Pilgrimage.
