Education and Formation Mass – Monday 20 June 2016

On Monday 20 June 2016 the Diocesan Education and Formation Mass took place at St Mary’s Cathedral, Newcastle with Bishop Séamus Cunningham.

This occasion celebrates diocesan faithfulness to the Church's educational and formational mission and the commitment of all who contribute to this in any way. The focus of the Mass was to give thanks for the work of those who have made a specific contribution to education or formation.

The gallery of the celebration can be accessed here.


Information on all courses and a new Continuing Professional Development and Formation Handbook for 2016-17 are coming soon.
