"Kirking of the Tartans" is a tradition here at St. Andrew's for over 20 years. This historic church was built in 1901 by Scottish settlers in Ben Lomond and has served as a symbol of the Valley's Scottish heritage. This is not only a celebration of St. Andrew (the patron saint of Scotland), but a tradition dating back to when it was banned in Scotland to claim your own family and cultural heritage. But families, or clans, would gather at church wearing a small piece of their tartan under their clothing representing their clan. The blessing bestowed at that secret gathering was a blessing on the entire clan.
