Saint Mary's Needs You!

The Annual Torchlight Procession to celebrate the Feast of the Immaculate Conception will take place from 7:00pm on Friday 6th December, beginning at the band stand in Hexham park, where we will pray the Rosary and sing hymns in honour of Our Lady, before processing, with candles, back to Saint Mary's Church for a homily and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.

The event will be led by Bishop Robert Byrne C. O.

A collection will be taken in aid of the Diocesan Hospitalite of our Lady of Lourdes.

We need lots of volunteers to help at this event (e.g. stewards, readers, people to carry the statue, flaming torch bearers, people to hand out and/or collect in candles, etc.), so if you are able to help in any way, please contact Saint Mary's Parish Office. If you cannot be a helper, then please come along to support this prayerful event.
