Procession and Blessing of the Scottish Youth Cross – 14th September

In preparation for the Papal Visit, there will be a Prayer Walk around Edinburgh with the young people of the Archdiocese, led by Cardinal O’Brien and the First Minister Alex Salmond.

The Procession will start at the Scottish Parliament at 4.00 pm, move on to St. Patrick’s, then on, further up the Royal Mile to the Mercat Cross outside St. Giles and finish up at St. Margaret’s Chapel.

This is a wonderful opportunity for the youth of the Archdiocese to witness to their faith!

For details of how to participate, please contact anne.mcevoy@staned.org.uk

The website www.forthinpraise.co.uk carries information about the Archdiocesan contribution to the Papal Visit, and is regularly updated.

Sunday Liturgy Notes are available, and there is also a text for a preparatory Novena based on prayers from the Holy Father.

You can download a series of podcasts on Caritas in Veritate for prayer and reflection; these are available on a link in the http://www.beingcatholic.org website with other resources such as a parish presentation on the life of Pope Benedict XVI.
