We are a Catholic parish in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town and home to the Edinburgh Oratory Project.

Newman’s Summer (July)

Newman’s Summer (July)

At the Birmingham Oratory under Saint John Henry Newman there was the tradition of having the month of August as a more relaxed period for the Priests of the community. This corresponded with the English school holidays. In Scotland our schools finish a month earlier, at the end of June.

Rest is important, and it gives us a chance to build up resources for the coming year.
Please note:

  1. The 11 am and the 4.30pm Masses will have Organ only.
  2. The 11am will be without ceremony.
  3. There will be no Vespers at 5.30pm.
  4. Benediction with a short period of Adoration will take place
    immediately after the 4.30 Mass.
  5. The Brothers of the Little Oratory will not meet during the
    month of July
Canon Hannan Grave Visit

Canon Hannan Grave Visit

On Monday 24th June at 8.30am the grave of Canon Hannan will again be blessed (the western path, the Grange Cemetery), all are welcome at this simple ceremony to mark his death in 1891; our former Parish Priest and Founder of Hibernian FC deserves particular recognition.
We are grateful to all those who assisted at his Memorial Mass on Saturday.
