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.

‘The Lord has need of thee’

Collect

Almighty and everlasting God,

you are always more ready to hear than we to pray

and to give more than either we desire or deserve:

pour down upon us the abundance of your mercy,

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,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.
