Cathedral Church of St Mary

Newcastle upon Tyne



This Wednesday 14th February we begin our journey through Lent.

Masses with the blessing and distribution of Ashes will take place at 8.00am (Said), 12.05pm (Sung Mass with Bishop Séamus) and 5.30pm (Said)

The season of Lent is a preparation for the celebration of Easter. The Liturgy prepares catechumens for the celebration of the Paschal Mystery by the several stages of Christian Initiation: it also prepares the faithful, who recall their Baptism and do penance in preparation for Easter.
