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'.
