IN HONOUR OF ST. MARGARET The Pilgrimage to Dunfermline

Scotland's eighth annual national pilgrimage in honour of St. Margaret, held last Sunday at Dunfermline, made a deeply impressive spectacle. it is computed that the pilgrims numbered about ten thousand, coming from very many parts of the country and some of them from overseas, for the ranks this year included a number of pilgrims from Ireland. A groap of Catholic boys from H.M.S. Caledonia, the naval training ship at Rosyth, made a picturesque contingent in their naval uniform.

The pilgrimage was led by the Archbishop of St. Andrews and Edinburgh. There were present also, among other prelates and clergy. Mgr. Mellon, Bishop of Daulia; Mgr. Graham, Bishop of Tipasa; Mgr. Canon McHardy (Ayr), who preached the pilgrimage sermon; Canons Birnie (Edinburgh). Keenan (Dundee). and Franklin (Musselburgh), Frs. M. V. Bruce (Edinburgh), G. Galbraith, M.C. (Glasgow), E. Dempsey (Perth).

From the Lower Station at Dunfermline a procession was formed, extending for a mile in length, to East End Park. There an altar had been erected at which Mass was celebrated by Fr. Bruce. Afterwards the pilgrims went to the shrine of the saint and queen in the shadow of the famous old abbey church, now in alien hands.
