Cathedral Church of St Mary

Newcastle upon Tyne



Situated in Newcastle city centre the Cathedral is open every day for quiet prayer and reflection.

At the start of July we marked the 175th anniversary of the death of Fr James Worswick who was instrumental in the building of St Mary’s Cathedral. We acknowledge and are thankful for his life of service and faith.



Our next  food bank collection in the Cathedral will take place next Sunday 29July.   Thank you for your ongoing generosity which will help support families who may be struggling over the next six weeks. 


The Cloister Café and Pauline Books and Media are closed for their annual Summer Break and will re-open on Tuesday 31 July. The Book Centre will also be closed on Mondays throughout August.

There will be no 8.00am weekday Masses during the month of August. Masses at 12.05pm will take place as usual.

The new glass front door in the basement is in place and opens into the light filled refurbished entrance hall leading to a modern high gloss kitchen, ready for hosting and supporting service users.
