stronghold festival

our annual festival

stronghold festival

come join us in the mountains
Each May we hold a festival for 16s-30s. This is a celebration of all the richness of our Catholic faith through praise and worship, teachings, fellowship and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. "God inhabits the praises of his people" (Psalm 22:3), and this festival aims to build a "Stronghold" of worship. You can learn more over at the website.
monthly events

stronghold prayer nights

come join us in the city
As part of Stronghold, we host regular prayer nights throughout Scotland - by young people, for young people. With our most popular nights in Glasgow, we now have events planned for Edinburgh and Aberdeen. These are like the festival in miniature, aiming to nurture friendships developed during and in the lead-up to festivals. They are times of worship before Jesus, of music, fomation and teaching, friendship, and fellowship. Prayer Nights last around three hours and then there's a trip to the pub after. Find out about when the next event is below, or by visiting

I would like to thank you and everyone at Craig Lodge for last weekend's retreat. I felt so blessed to be there. From start to finish it was a deeply spiritual experience that no one could attend and come away the same.
Last night our eldest picked out the gold vestment he wants for when he is a priest. Let’s just say you are doing something very right if their little imaginations are drawn to such thoughts! Can’t quite put into words the joy we experienced of staying in the same house as where The Eucharist is present. It’s such a gift!
Me, Maddie and Helena were just out in the school yard, on the soccer pitch, and a group of maybe 12 or 13 year olds approached us. They were kind of joking, “our friend has a broken arm - would you pray for healing for him? So we said, “yes, absolutely.” We were going over to pray with this boy who had a broken arm, and Maddie said, “why don’t we all pray for him, not just us - so does everyone want to extend a hand?” So everyone put a hand on the boy. I led the prayer and they repeated the line after me. We all prayed together. It was about a group of five or six of them around this boy. After they were all kind of giggling, and the boy didn’t really do anything. So we said “move your arm and see, check it out.” He checked it and said, “I couldn’t move it that far before. I don’t feel anything!” We said, “you’ve seen healing. This is a miracle!”
