This Holy Door was produced by the young people who attend St. Mary's First and St. Joseph's Middle Schools in Hexham.

It was erected in St. Mary's Church to Celebrate the end of the Holy Year of Mercy and the start of the season of Advent. This Holy Door had some wonderful prayers and messages attached and so was a magnificent example of our young people's Mercy.

Everyone in St. Mary's Parish had the opportunity to process through one or more Holy Doors and to offer prayers for our Holy Father's intentions whilst on one of the Parish pilgrimages which were held throughout the past year. These pilgrimages included visits to:

  • Lourdes
  • Holy Island
  • Rome
  • Assisi
  • Newcastle
  • Ripon
  • Lancaster
  • Liverpool
