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 Father 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).  
At the moment they are in the process of transforming an old 
water mill into what will become a splendid home.

Fr Simon assists in the Machars parish, celebrating the Vigil Mass
for the parish of Whithorn each Saturday.  Each Tuesday 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 -

There will be no celebration of the Ordinariate Holy Mass in Whithorn for the time being following Scotland's Catholic Bishops announcement that no public Masses will be celebrated in Scotland.
