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

Trinity 4

The Birth of John the Baptist

Almighty God,

by whose providence your servant John the Baptist was wonderfully born,

and sent to prepare the way of your Son our Saviour

by the preaching of repentance:

lead us to repent according to his preaching

and, after his example,

constantly to speak the truth, boldly to rebuke vice,

and patiently to suffer for the truth’s sake;

through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever

Amen

New Bishop 

The Rev Canon Ian Paton has been elected as the new Bishop of St Andrews, Dunkeld & Dunblane. He has been Rector of Old St Paul’s Church, Edinburgh since 1997, and is also honorary Anglican Chaplain to Edinburgh University, Canon of St Mary’s Cathedral, Edinburgh and Associate Tutor at the Scottish Episcopal Institute. He was previously a rector in East Lothian, Vice-Provost of St Mary’s Cathedral, a university chaplain in Oxford, a bishop’s chaplain, and a curate in Reading. He is a former convener of the Scottish Episcopal Church’s (SEC) provincial Liturgy Committee, involved in writing new services for the SEC, and continues to teach worship to students training for ministry. He is a supporter of the ordination of women, the rights of LGBTQI people, and the inclusion of people of all ages in the Church.

Canon Ian Paton is married and he and his wife have, between them, four grown-up children. They enjoy art and poetry, hospitality around the dinner table and have a love of the sea.

On hearing the news of his election Canon Ian Paton said “I am very happy and deeply honoured to have been elected by the people of St Andrews, Dunkeld & Dunblane to serve them as their Bishop. I ask for your prayers for the whole Diocese, and for me, as we set out together on this new journey for all of us.”

Trinity 2

Lord, you have taught us

that all our doings without love are nothing worth:

send your Holy Spirit

and pour into our hearts that most excellent gift of love,

the true bond of peace and of all virtues,

without which whoever lives is counted dead before you.

Grant this for your only Son Jesus Christ’s sake,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.
