Cathedral Church of St Mary

Newcastle upon Tyne




Carols by Candlelight took place on Thursday evening. This lovely service of carols and readings was led by Bishop Seamus and during it the lights of the Cathedral Christmas tree were lit. The cathedral choir led the congregation in the singing of many traditional Christmas carols and also introduced us to some new and exciting carols, including one sung in Quechua, the ancient language of the Incas. Children from Our Lady and St Anne's School delighted everybody with their singing of "Run with Haste to Bethlehem" and "Now our Story has been Told".

Our newly appointed Cathedral Outreach Worker, Yvette Daniels, spoke about the new Mercy Hub, and during the evening a collection was taken to support the work of the centre.
