St Mary’s Catholic Primary School ‘Faith in Education’

Welcome to our new Bishop

On Tuesday 26th March some members of our Mini Vinnie group went to St. Mary's Cathedral for the afternoon.  There they joined schools from across the Diocese at a service to welcome our new Bishop to Hexham and Newcastle. 

The singing and readings/ prayers were led by pupils from schools across the diocese.  Bishop Robert was presented with a stole which was designed by pupils in our schools and contains a number of symbols with significant importance within the Catholic Church and our Diocese and a book containing welcome messages from each school in the diocese.  The children who attended to represent our school said 'Bishop Robert seems like a very nice man who will fill Bishop Seamus' shoes extremely well.  We are glad that he has followed his call and become our Bishop'.
