Our Lady of Aberdeen: Pray for us




From the opening Holy Mass until the closing ceilidh, the week is packed with an excellent input from gifted religious and lay people with the aim to refresh and re-invigorate our Catholic faith. There is daily Mass and talks on a variety of topics. Workshops which address a whole range of issues relevant to the daily living out of our faith in difficult times. An exciting programme of events for children and youth is also offered.

New Dawn started in Walsingham in 1987 by the late Myles Dempsey and has now spread to many countries. New Dawn’s charism is to display the Catholic Church in all her splendour. We want to offer you a warm welcome to this year’s conference and help you to experience more of the treasures of our faith. Our teams of well experienced ministry leaders will be there to serve you in the many ministries at the conference, including: - Children, Youth, Adult, Prayer, Music and Liturgy.


Each day has a theme: -

Monday-The Holy Spirit, Tuesday-Reconciliation, Wednesday-Healing, Thursday-Mary Mother of the Church, Friday-Evangelisation.


If you can’t make all or part of the conference, then please join the many parishes on Thursday 9th July for our annual St Andrews Pilgrimage and Rosary Procession in honour of Our Lady and St Andrew which will follow the statue of Our Lady of Aberdeen and a relic of St Andrew through the streets of St. Andrews, culminating with Holy Mass in the ancient Cathedral ruins.


We are Eucharistic centred, Sacramental, Marian and Spirit Filled.


Our 5-day conference is a time for making new friends, learning about our faith in a fresh way with lots of fun activities for youth and children.
