THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH

Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham in Scotland
under the patronage of Blessed John Henry Newman
The Ordinariate in Whithorn and the Machars

The Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham arrived in
the Diocese of Galloway in the south west of Scotland with the
ordination of Father Simon Beveridge who lives with his wife, Sarah, near Whithorn to where St Ninian first brought the Gospel
to Scotland in the early 5th cent (he died in 432AD).  
At the moment they are in the process of transforming an old 
water mill into what will become a splendid home.

At present Fr Simon is assisting in the Parish of St Andrew's and
St Cuthbert's, Kirkcudbright, St Peter's, Dalbeattie, St Martin and
St Ninian's, Whithorn, Sacred Heart, Wigtown, and Our Lady and
St Ninian's, Newton Stewart, with the Church of the Resurrection, Gatehouse of Fleet, and St John's, Castle Douglas, while working
to establish an Ordinariate presence in the Machars area.

How the Ordinariate will establish itself in Whithorn and the Marches will unfold in God's good time. For further information please contact Father Simon - whithorn@ordinariate.org.uk.
