Mass of Welcome for New Catholics 2012
A Diocesan Mass of Welcome for those who have recently been received into the Church took place on May 31st at St Joseph's, Gateshead.
Despite the heavy rain well over a hundred people from al parts of the diocese - new Catholics, sponsors, friends, family, catechists, deacons and priests - gathered together to celebrate this joyful occasion together with Bishop Seamus.
Inspiring music was provided by the diocesan choir, and it was a delightful diocesan occasion - full of welcome and joy. It was especially nice to chat together afterwards and enjoy refreshments in the hall at St Joseph's.
