The St Margaret of Scotland Annual Lecture commemorates the life and legacy of Queen Margaret of Scotland, focusing on intersections between Catholicism and theology or the arts. The Annual Lecture launched in February 2020 through the generous support of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of St Andrews and Edinburgh (Canmore Chaplaincy), the School of Divinity at the University of St Andrews, the University Chaplaincy, St Salvator’s Choir, and the Office of the Principal.
This annual event celebrates the links between the University’s School of Divinity and Canmore, the Chaplaincy for University Catholics in St Andrews.
Traditionally, the lecture is accompanied by a choral Mass, presided over by his excellency, Archbishop Leo Cushley, in St Salvator’s University Chapel. However, due to the pandemic restrictions currently in place the choral Mass has been cancelled and Archbishop Cushley will offer a reflection after the Lecture and Q&A.
Ticket information: This event is free and open to staff and students from the University and to the wider public.
