There are three hostas planted just inside the garden gate. Each autumn they completely withdraw underground but each spring they come back. I saw the first sign of them on Wednesday. In a few weeks from now they will have grown so that the three become monumental with their broad silver green leaves. There are lots of other plants just getting on with life too.
The Catholic Chaplaincy serves the students and staff of the University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh Napier University and Queen Margaret University.
The Catholic Chaplaincy is also a parish of the Archdiocese of St Andrews and Edinburgh (the Parish of St Albert the Great) and all Catholic students and staff are automatically members of this parish.
