The recently revived 2017 National Pilgrimage to Dunfermline in honour of St Margaret of Scotland will take place this year on Sunday 11 June with the procession leaving from the Glen Gates at 2pm. The procession, led by His Grace Archbishop Cushley and the Dunfermline Pipe Band, will process via Bridge Street, High Street and East Port to St Margaret’s RC Church for Mass at 3pm. The Mass will be concelebrated by Archbishop Cushley and a number of the local clergy. Large number of pilgrims are expected for this event and, once the Church is full, pilgrims will be directed to Carnegie Hall (opposite the Church), where a live transmission of the mass will be streamed. Priests will attend at all these locations for the distribution of Holy Communion.
