175th Year Anniversary Mass
A High Mass to celebrate 175th Anniversary of St Mary’s Cathedral took place on Monday 30th September. It was a truly memorable day enjoyed by 600 guests and regular worshippers.

The Dominicans are leaving Newcastle at the end of the month, after many years faithful service. We extend to them our very best wishes and prayers.
Pastoral care of the parish will then be entrusted to the clergy of the Cathedral and Fr Michael will be appointed as Parish Priest of St Dominic’s as well as the Cathedral. Fr Michael will attend the Masses at St Dominic’s this weekend and speak to the parishoners during the Masses.
Our sincere hope and prayers is that our two communities can work together so as to flourish into the future.

The tradition of lighting candles on the sanctuary steps in memory of loved ones will again take place on the feast of The Holy Souls, Saturday, 2nd November .
Over the last few years this practice has proved to be a most moving tribute to those who are sadly no longer with us.

We’re a group of musicians of mixed ages and talent and we enjoy providing music for the 6.30pm Sunday Evening Mass. We have a friendly relaxed approach and only rehearse before Mass so the commitment isn’t too onerous. New musicians are always very welcome. If you think you might be interested please come over after Mass and let us know.
