The Diocesan Pilgrimage

 

The Revd Nerys Brown writes

28th July, the day of our first diocesan pilgrimage to St Andrews, was a day to remember. It was a day of sunshine and showers, a day for prayer and song, conversation and laughter.

Those hardy souls who tramped the first five miles from the picturesque village of Ceres were rather damp when they arrived at Craigtoun Park. It was easy to distinguish between them and those who joined them for the second half of the journey.

The excitement grew as we caught a glimpse of the twin towers of the Cathedral of Saint Andrew in the distance and the sun had dried clothes and hair by the time we arrived at Hallow Hill where even more pilgrims were waiting for us.

A long line of about 70 walkers threaded their way along the Lade Braes towards St Andrew’s Church. There were Episcopalians from Leven, Lochgelly and Kinross, Dunfermline and Rosyth, Aberfoyle, Doune, Dunblane and Dollar, Stirling, Perth, Blairgowrie, Forfar, Cupar, Ladybank and St Andrews. There were Catholics from Tayport and Dundee, Methodists and members of the Church of Scotland, two medievalists from Glasgow University and a couple who live near the Camino in France.

We arrived at our destination in bright sunshine and then made our way to All Saints for a welcome cup of tea and evensong.

Thank you, Alasdair Coles and Nick Cooke for organising the pilgrimage, to the two churches at St Andrews for their hospitality and to all who led the reflections along the way and the final worship, including bishops Bruce and Bob. On the day, there was talk of another pilgrimage next year and some were even planning a trip to walk the Camino. In the meantime, should any church group like to walk part of the Fife Pilgrim Way in the coming months, Alasdair would be happy to be your guide. He can be contacted at alasdaircoles@btinternet.com.

forgiving us those things of which our conscience is afraid

and giving us those good things

which we are not worthy to ask

but through the merits and mediation

of Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,

who is alive and reigns with you,

Saturday 28th July

Diocesan Pilgrimage in association with Scottish Pilgrim Routes Forum

To help us experience something of the spiritual potential of pilgrimage, a section of the Fife Pilgrim Way will be navigated on Saturday 28 July this year, ending at the Cathedral ruins in St Andrews, then with refreshments and Evensong at All Saints’ Church, nearby. Destroyed during the Scottish Reformation, St Andrews Cathedral was consecrated in July 1318, the largest church in Scotland, and had already been a major pilgrimage destination for centuries for Christians from all over Europe. The Cathedral ruins remain an attraction for tourists and pilgrims from all over the world, with a renewed spiritual emphasis supported by new pilgrim routes, like the FPW. Different pilgrimage options have been provided to encourage participation from those with a wide range of mobility requirements and ages, along the different stages of the route. There will be places to rest and pray on the route and each stage will begin with a short act of worship during which any additional pilgrims will be welcomed and incorporated.

 

OPTION A would suit those who are used to walking longer distances – over 10 miles – covering some rough farm tracks, rural, woodland and urban paths, with some sustained hills to climb (transport back to Ceres will be provided for those who park at the start of this option).

 

OPTION B would suit those who are comfortable with some rougher sections, sloping surfaces and a distance of about 4-5 miles along country and urban paths. It starts at Craigtoun Country Park so could be part of a longer day out with children (transport back to Craigtoun will be provided for those who park at the start of this option).

 

OPTION C would suit those who are comfortable with up to a 3 mile route in a fairly flat, urban setting on fairly good tarmac and paved surfaces.

 

OPTION D would suit those who are comfortable with a distance of about half a mile, in a flat, urban setting along pavements and the paths and cut grass of the Cathedral ruins. Ceres Craigtoun Park

 

If any of the above are of interest, please let Richard know. Application by booking form obtained from Richard

Almighty God,

who sent your Holy Spirit

open our hearts to the riches of your grace,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.
