St Andrew’s Day is our national day, and therefore one on which it will be
instinctive to want to care for and about our country, and — for those who
can pray—that we pray for it and for everyone who lives here.
A Piper will welcome people as they approach Glasgow Cathedral, and inside this
iconic building an ensemble will play. At this time of growth and development
in our country it is fitting that service should open with the harpist singing
words of St Columba :
‘My Dearest Lord, be thou a bright flame before me,
be thou a guiding star above me,
be thou a smooth path beneath me,
Be thou a kindly shepherd behind me,
today and ever more.’
All are most welcome to join the Minister of Glasgow Cathedral, the Archbishop, the
Moderator of Glasgow Presbytery, the First Minster, and our Lord Provost, Cllr Sadie Docherty.
The music will be led by the St Mungo Singers, the choir of the High School of Glasgow, a soloist from Glasgow
Cathedral Choir and an ensemble and harpist.
