Part 2 of the St. Mungo Singers’ celebrations was a pilgrimage to St. Andrews on 18 June by a group of 35 singers, family and friends. They set off first thing for the East Coast – and the weather was in their favour for once – and after a short service at St. James’ church in St. Andrews, there was plenty of time to experience the history of St. Andrews, the scenery, the food and the shops.
Then the pilgrimage was rounded off by a visit to the Chapel Royal at Falkland Palace where they had the privilege of Mass in the beautifully historic surroundings, concelebrated by Mgr Gerry and Fr Hugh O’Donnell. Mgr Gerry, in his homily, reminded everyone why the choir had been founded – the commitment to support the liturgy and to help the people of God to pray – purposes which they and their predecessors had carried out so well over the 45 years.
As always with the St. Mungo Singers, there was time for a look around and to have some refreshments before heading back to Glasgow. Next stop – Rothesay.
