These are your copies of the weekly newsletter and notices for our family of parishes. Take some time out each week to read these and pray for the most in need in our local community and across our global family.
**Due to a change in the license agreement we are no longer able to publish the Sunday Message, Sunday Plus and Homily directly on our website – however, they are available on our weekly mailer, if you would like to continue to read them please sign up at the bottom of the home page to receive them every week.**
Because of limited space on our paper newsletter additional items will be published on our News Extra page. This will include articles surrounding the wider church and global issues as well as any charity and social justice initiatives. Please check regularly for updates and keep an eye on our main newsletter and social media pages for more information.
It is no longer necessary to book a place for Mass.
Mass will be held in each of our parish churches as shown below.
On 17th October we began the ‘Year of the Eucharist‘ in our Diocese which has the following aims:
- Revitalise and renew our faith through a deepening prayer and devotion of the Eucharist.
- Grow as a Diocese in our love and appreciation of the Eucharist.
- Deepen our appreciation of the liturgical celebration of the Eucharist through the rites.
- Celebrate Eucharist as being at the heart of the life and mission of the Church, gathering people back.
- Go out to love and serve the world nourished by the Eucharist.
With this in mind, throughout the following year we will have the opportunity to pray before the Blessed Sacrament within our Wallsend Family of Churches. The times of Exposition and Adoration will be for 30mins before the Tuesday/Wednesday/Friday Masses in all three churches with an additional session every Saturday morning at St Columba’s from 11.00am during the Sacrament of Reconciliation/Confessions.
For further information on Mass Times and the arrangements in place please check here
*Saturday and Tuesday Masses from St Columba’s will be livestreamed from our YouTube Channel and and can be viewed here:

One thought on “NEWSLETTER – 29th October”
Although it is many years since I lived in Wallsend and was a St Columbas parishioner I enjoy reading the newsletter and especially for those who need prayers and of course there are those on that list who were my friends years ago. I’m pretty sure that you will know my sister Joan Coates.
I have written to the newsletter a few times, but no one answered, enquiring if you would know the whereabouts of Jim Ford who isn’t on the prayer list but was a lifetime parishioner who lived in Laburnum Ave. His wife Joan died and with him being disabled he is perhaps in a residential home now.
If it is possible and I know for security reasons you cannot give me his address but you could give me an update, if you know, as to his well being and if he is indeed still alive even if he is not well.
I will be giving you my personal details and if you can contact him on my behalf I would be so grateful and if he is able he could then contact me.
