Rector’s Welcome

Fr Dan was appointed as Rector by Pope Francis in August 2015I am delighted to be able to welcome you to the new website of the Pontifical Scots College in Rome.

As well as the seminarians, throughout the centuries, the College has welcomed many visitors from Scotland, especially pilgrims to the Eternal City, and will continue to be a place of hospitality for those who will visit Rome for the Holy Year of Mercy.

I would like to thank all those whose hard work and technical knowledge have made this new website possible. While the technology changes, the need to make known the message of the Gospel remains the same and we hope that this website will help with that. I also hope that as you visit the website, you will be able to find out more about what we do here in the Scots College and get some useful information for your visit to the city.

Please take some time to browse through the site, which will always be a work in progress, and, as you do so, please take a moment to help us with your prayers and encouragement.


Rev Daniel Fitzpatrick
