The Scots College recently hosted two pilgrimages from diocese in Scotland. The groups from Glasgow and Galloway stopped by the college during their stay in the Eternal City in this Holy Year of Mercy.
At the end of May, Archbishop Tartaglia and a group of 80 pilgrims from the Archdiocese visited the Scots College. The stop at the Scottish seminary came as the pilgrimage reached it’s conclusion. The group celebrated Mass in the college chapel, enjoyed a tour of the building and some refreshments on the terrazza, before heading straight to the airport after their week long stay in Italy.
Then, just over a week later, the pilgrims of the Diocese of Galloway, led by Bishop Nolan, arrived at the mid way point of their stay in Rome.
The group of just over 50 from the South West corner of Scotland visited at the half way point of their own trip. They continued on with a visit to Assisi and the Papal Audience.
Another group that stopped by the college during their time in Rome was a visiting group from Fernhill School in Glasgow. Just over 30 students along with teachers and priests spent 5 days in Italy and managed to squeeze in a few hours for a tour of the college and a chance to relax after a busy few days of sightseeing.
