2016 Pilgrimage to Lourdes

Support needed: There is a shortage of Nurses and Adult Helpers as well as some Young people – clashes with World Youth Day.

Help with costs available. Contact:  Kath McTernan, Chief Nurse on 0191 274 3928 or Fr Peter Stott at St Robert’s Church, Morpeth on 01670 513410 or email lourdes@rcdhn.org.uk.


The Gift:

Is a DVD based course that it is hoped parishes/deaneries will use as a way to ‘engage and joyfully explore what it means to be spirit-filled in everyday life’. The DVD uses inspirational speakers who provide content in a relaxed and informative way.

It is especially useful as a framework and assists those who want to promote outreach based on prayer and the power of the Holy Spirit.

This is especially true as we all move deeper into Forward Together in Hope.

Saturday 14th May and 4th June 2016 between 10.00am and 3.30pm at St. Cuthbert's Church, North Shields.

If you wish to attend or want more information please email tim@faithcafe.org or ring 07875 848138.

Prayer Novena – Thy Kingdom Come


In response to the call of the Archbishop of Canterbury and Archbishop Sentamu of York, there will be a prayer Novena called Thy Kingdom Come from Ascension Thursday to Pentecost – 8th -15th  May – for the re-evangelisation of Britain. 

We have been invited to take part .There are to be 6 Beacon Cathedrals in England as focal points for prayer.  Durham Cathedral is one of these and the final prayer liturgy will be there on Pentecost Sunday 15th May at 7pm. 

This is a free event, but for planning purposes tickets do need to be booked through the website: http://thykingdom.co.uk/.


Bishop Seamus is anxious that we are well represented so book your ticket and let us be seen to pray together.


From 8th to 15th there will be prayer spaces set apart in the Cathedral for this intention.  You might be able to visit during that week or pray in your own church communities.  During the Novena a prayer event will be held each day in the Galilee Chapel focusing on the Northern Saints.
