DUNFERMLINE became a temporary Catholic stronghold on Sunday when 14,000 people from all over the country took part in the first post-war national pilgrimage to the shrine of St. Margaret, Queen of Scotland.
Special trains from Edinburgh, Glasgow, Stirling. Cardenden, Greenock, Dundee, and other places, as well as about 150 buses. brought the pilgrims to the abbey town.
Leading them were Archbishop Campbell of Glasgow and Bishop Scanlan of Dunkeld, with Abbot Mulcahy of Nunraw.
Six abreast, the pilgrims set out from Dunfermline, singing hymns and saying the Rosary, on the milelong walk to East End Park.
Here the Archbishop pontificated at the Mass of St. Margaret for the restoration of the Faith to Scotland.
