Canon Michael McCoy, Cathedral Dean, writes:

BAPTISMS - I am aware that several families had to postpone baptisms throughout the closure of our churches. We are able to celebrate baptisms again although the Government has put a limit on those attending to 30 people. If you would like to arrange a baptism please call the Cathedral Office.
CONFESSIONS - We are unable to use the Confessionals at the moment but if you would like to celebrate this Sacrament then please book an appointment with one of the priests by contacting the Cathedral Office. We hope to designate a room near the Cathedral Office with a suitable screen maintaining the appropriate social distancing

We are delighted to announce that we are beginning the phased re-opening of our Newcastle bookcentre.
Please note our amended opening times as of Saturday 8th August:
Saturday: 9:45am - 3:00pm
Sunday:    8:30am - 1:00pm.

 We look forward to welcoming you back! We will regularly re-assess these opening times so please phone ahead to ensure that we are open before travelling 0191 2316040
