Prayer Walks around the Diocese - St. Mary's Cathedral

St. Mary's Cathedral Pilgrimage of Mercy

This walk may be suitable for people who are visiting the Cathedral and wishing to celebrate the Jubilee Year of Mercy.

The Door of Mercy at St. Mary’s is clearly marked on the right of the cathedral (looking to the front). It was opened by Bishop Séamus Cunningham.

Bishop Séamus says:

I invite you to come to the Cathedral during the Year of Mercy and when you come bring others with you. These visits, as you enter through the Holy Door, will be opportunities to pray and reflect upon your journey of faith and how we all have a home in God.”


St. Mary's Cathedral is located opposite Central Railway Station in Newcastle.
