Prayer Walksaround the Diocese – St. Mary's Cathedral

St. Mary's Cathedral Pilgrimage of Mercy

This walk was formed to celebrate the Jubilee Year of Mercy and may be of interest to anyone who visits the Cathedral and has a little time on their hands.

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

He said:

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.
