Annual General Meeting @ St Robert of Newminster Church
May 12 @ 11:00 am – 3:30 pm

For 2019, we are doing something slightly different for our Annual Mass and Annual General Meeting.  It is all part of trying to raise awareness of the Pilgrimage in different parts of the diocese and other events are being planned throughout the year throughout the diocese


Members of the Hospitalite Council have asked that we join the parishioners of St Robert of Newminster Church, Morpeth for their normal 11am Sunday Mass.  After the Mass, we will have a picnic lunch in the grounds of the church.  Then after the picnic, we will hold the AGM and the afternoon will finish with Rosary at the Parish Grotto with a Procession around the Church Grounds.

We hope you will be able to come along and join this special occasion.


Further details will be given nearer the time.
