“The e-news update is a great way for Catholics – and many others – to keep up to date with everything that the Archdiocese of St Andrews & Edinburgh is doing to proclaim the joy of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the one and a half million people who live within the bounds of our diocese.”

A place steeped in cultural and religious history. On arrival the local parish priest led us in a service with the relic of St. Andrew. After discovering the great ancient sites, a visit to the beach, coffee shops, and of course the shops we headed south to Burntisland.
