SCOTLAND, Fr. Michael Savage. Teaming up again with the Archdiocese of Glasgow Education department another schools' project was set up reflecting the Year of St Paul. Schools from across the central belt of Scotland took part in a month long faith and development programme out at the Schoenstatt Center of Campsie Glen. Through prayer talks and adventurous play the children were encouraged to consider Paul's life and work for growing strong in Faith.

Keep on running the race.... we can do nothing without God, Christ in me. Always give thanks. Throughout May 2009 hundreds of pupils took part in the day which centred on the celebration of mass and a visit to the shrine.

On May 13th Archbishop Conti of Glasgow joined in the activities and to close the project at the end of the month Cardinal O'Brien from St Andrew's and Edinburgh came along to join the children and project leaders

Sr Mary Elsbeth said: This is our fifth project. We began in 2000 with the great jubilee and have followed it up every two years with others like the year of the rosary and Reconcilation. The days with the children have been great fun and encourage a lively understanding of faith.

Giving thanks

On Sunday 31st May 2009 the Schoenstatt family in Scotland gathered for its May Day celebration and crowning of the MTA, a moment of thanking for so many pupils who came in touch with the Shrine.

The weather was glorious and sun shone from a clear blue sky which in Scotland being more used to grey skies and rain is always a pleasant surprise!

The May Crowning in Scotland goes back to 1974. At that time the movement was based at Ardmory at Langside on the south side of Glasgow. The then Archbishop of Glasgow Archbishop Winning offered the MTA the flower crown symbolising all the offerings and sacrifices.

In keeping with the theme of the year of St Paul the preparation and talks centred around the person and mission of Paul. Despite all the difficulties which might have discouraged or put of a lesser person he persevered to bring the gospel to the gentiles.
