Throughout the year, we host a few social events for the purpose of building parish community and fundraising for future projects. Past events have included ceilidhs, quiz nights, race nights, and a Burn's Night!

PILGRIMAGES

Every couple of years, we try to do a major parish pilgrimage to holy sites of the Christian Faith. Past locations have included Rome, the Holy Land, and Salamanca [Unfortunately, this was cancelled due to lockdown].

LEGION OF MARY

In addition to weekly meetings members commit to a specific apostolic task each week always working as a team or in pairs, so that the Person of Jesus is once again seen and served by Mary his Mother.
In St Andrews, apostolic work includes a weekly rosary group in Greyfriars school, monthly public rosary, cemetery visits, Communion visits, home visits, book barrow, and ‘door to door’ faith sharing. Apostolic work can be challenging but members witness to the tremendous results in their own lives and in the lives of others.
Membership is usually by application. There is a 3 month probationary period and full PVG disclosure will be needed.
