We are very grateful for all donations received towards the upkeep of our two churches and chaplaincy. Most of these donations come from the generosity of those who attend our Sunday Masses – be they long-term parishioners, seasonal parishioners, students or just those enjoying a holiday in St Andrews. Cheques can be made payable to St James’ Catholic Church, Archdiocese of St Andrews & Edinburgh.

Online donations can be made here.
