Archbishop Leo Cushley brought over 50 pilgrims from the Archdiocese of St. Andrews and Edinburgh as part of their Year of Mercy pilgrimage to the Eternal City.
At the end of the Jubilee Year, the Scots College community welcomed the final group from Scotland, from the Archdiocese of St. Andrews and Edinburgh. The group have been visiting the sites of Rome since their arrival on Wednesday as well as making the journey through the Holy Door at St. Peter’s before it was closed by the Pope during Mass yesterday.
Upon their arrival at the College, Archbishop Cushley gave a brief introduction to the history of the college before the group prepared for Mass in the College chapel. They were joined by the four seminarians from the Archdiocese for Mass.
Afterwards, the students gave the visitors a tour of the building, pointing out the history of the institution and it’s role in the history of the Church in Scotland.
The group attended the Mass for the official end of the Jubilee Year on Sunday, along with a small group of seminarians from the College. Before they head home to Scotland, the group will celebrate Mass at the tomb of St. Peter on Tuesday and visit Assisi.
