The Scots College relies heavily on it’s supporters and benefactors in Scotland. Over the last century, The Scots College Society has been a focal point of that support.
Since it’s foundation the Scots College in Rome has sent hundres of young men back to the land of great Saints such as Ninian, Columba and Margaret. These men have been called upon to provide a witness to the Catholic faith and give the faithful an example of the life of Jesus Christ.
Over the years, this has been supported by former students and the lay people of Scotland. Since 1904, this support has been the main object of The Scots College Society (Rome). The society is made up of former students at the college in Rome, those who have been ordained to ministry and of course, the Scottish faithful.
Guided by the national patron, St. Andrew and St. Ninian, the Society meets annually for Mass and Dinner as well as the AGM. This gathering happens in Glasgow, at St. Andrew’s Cathedral and occurs in time for the Feast of St. Andrew.
If you’d like more information about the Society, you can contact the President, Monsignor Christopher McElroy.
