Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham in Scotland
under the patronage of Saint 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 Fr Simon Beveridge who lives with his wife, Sarah,
near Whithorn where St Ninian first brought the Gospel in the
early 5th cent (he died in 432AD).  

Fr Simon assists in the Machars parish, celebrating the Vigil Mass
for the parish of Whithorn each Saturday.  Each Wednesday he celebrates an Ordinariate Use Mass in St Martin and St Ninian's with, amongst others, those on Pilgrimage tracing the footsteps of St Ninian.

Fr Simon's home is a restored old water mill, now a splendid home, and where he celebrates Mass according to Divine Worship: The Missal (the Ordinariate Use) on the first Sunday of the month.  For directions and further information please contact Fr Simon   -
