The Catholic Chaplaincy for the University of St Andrews
of the Archdiocese of St Andrews and Edinburgh
Welcome to the Chaplaincy!
The Catholic Chaplaincy, which is in the care of the Archdiocese of St Andrews and Edinburgh, is open to all students and staff at the University. Canmore, the Chaplaincy building, is directly opposite the church on the Scores.
The Chaplain is Fr Michael John Galbraith, the Parish Priest of St James’. If you want to talk to him, he is very approachable and can be found just across the road in the Presbytery.
