St Margaret of Scotland Annual Lecture and Choral Mass in St Salvator's Chapel

The St Margaret of Scotland 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 2022 lecture will be delivered on Wednesday, 16th of November by scholar and acclaimed novelist, Professor Randy Boyagoda, at 6:00 p.m. in School III, St. Salvator's Quad. The title of his talk is “Favourite Books and Fatal Books: The Life and Death Consequences of Reading, in Dante and Beyond”

Attendance is free and open to the public, but places are limited so please register (see form, below).

The St Margaret of Scotland Lecture Series precedes, and is attached to, an annual choral Mass, held 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 excellency, Archbishop Cushley. This year's Mass will be sung by St Salvator's Chapel choir and begins at 7:30 p.m.

University staff who wish to participate in the academic procession should contact Fiona Thompson (by 28th 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.
