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 to where St Ninian first brought the Gospel
to Scotland in the early 5th cent (he died in 432AD).
Since his arrival, after retirning a a Royal Navy Chaplain,
he has worked to transform an old water mill into what
is now their splendid home.
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, Whithorn, with, amongst others, those on Pilgrimage tracing the footsteps of
St Ninian, while working to establish an Ordinariate presence.
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 - firstname.lastname@example.org.
