Carfin

Carfin Community

The Spiritans (Holy Ghost Fathers) have always valued Scotland as a source of missionary vocations and great support for missionary work.

In 1956 we started a community at Uddingston on the outskirts of Glasgow. In 1970 the community was transferred to the old Parish house and Church in Carfin, opposite the Carfin Grotto, the national shrine to Our Lady and a pilgrimage centre.

Today the Carfin community continues to serve the people of Scotland in many ways, and witness to our Missionary commitment. It is:
– our Provincial Archives
– open for retreats and spiritual direction.
– provides counselling facilities for alcoholics and drug addicts.
– serves as a base for Spiritan missionary animation, fund-raising, and support and help for the local church in Scotland.
