St Margaret of Scotland Annual Lecture and Choral Mass (2023)

The St Margaret of Scotland Annual Lecture Series commemorates the life and legacy of Queen Margaret of Scotland. The Lecture Series is an annual event, focusing on intersections between Catholicism and theology or the arts.

The 2023 lecture will be delivered by Professor Jennifer Newsome Martin (Notre Dame). The title of her talk is ‘Desiring Beauty'.

Attendance is free and open to the public, but places are limited so you must register using the form below to save your place.

The St Margaret of Scotland Lecture Series precedes, and is attached to, an annual choral Mass at St Salvator's Chapel, which celebrates links between the University's School of Divinity and Canmore, the Catholic Chaplaincy in St Andrews.

The choral Mass will be presided over by his Grace, Archbishop Cushley. This year's Mass will be sung by St Salvator's Chapel choir and begins at 5.30pm. The Mass is open to all and tickets are not required.

University staff who wish to participate in the academic procession at the start of the Mass should contact Fiona Thompson by Friday 13 October at [email protected]. If you require a gown hire, please specify in your reservation.

A reception in Lower College Hall, kindly hosted by the Principal's Office, will directly follow the choral Mass.

For further inquiries please contact Dr Rebekah Lamb (Divinity) at [email protected].

Please note that photographs will be taken during all events outlined above and used on social media and other University channels.
