Directions to the Ignatian Spirituality Centre for weekday Masses
From the church building on Rose Street, turn left onto Hill Street and walk up the hill. Turn second right onto Scott Street and you will arrive at the Ignatian Spirituality Centre. We apologise for any inconvenience at this time.

World Youth Day & MAGiS 2023

Begun in 1985 by Pope John Paul II, international World Youth Day (WYD) takes place every few years, over several days, culminating in a large open-air Papal Mass, attended by hundreds of thousands (in 2015, 6 million) of young people.

There is an Ignatian “pre-programme” to WYD called MAGiS, including service projects for the poor, prayer together and a taste of Christian community living.


The next WYD will be in Lisbon in 2023 for which the Jesuits of Portugal are organising another MAGiS. Young adults from Jesuit Parishes in Scotland and England are invited to take part in the programme.

Our parish is willing to support applicants for WYD/Magis. If you are interested in attending WYD/Magis with the Jesuit parishes please reply to Fr Gerard Mitchell, S.J. on and please see further information about Magis at
