Our Parish and community are best described as an urban city parish with a mix of privately owned and housing association properties. A large vacant site formerly occupied by multi-storey blocks is earmarked for re-development in near future. The only schools in the parish are both Roman Catholic, one Primary and one Secondary. There is also a special needs school for primary and secondary ages which has a multi council catchment area (Dundee, Angus and Perth and Kinross). Our previous minister was chaplain to this school.
Much of the Parish area is the open space of Dundee Law. A volunteer group, ‘Friends of Dundee Law’ undertake a variety of activities throughout the year and recently we have been providing refreshments for them on the days of their larger gatherings.
