Almost 300 people from across the Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle celebrated their faith together at the Eucharistic Festival on Corpus Christi at Ushaw College in Durham.

Bishop Robert Byrne CO, Bishop of Hexham and Newcastle, re-dedicated the recently refurbished Pugin altar, followed by a service, a procession around Ushaw’s grounds and gardens, and concluding with benediction in St Cuthbert’s Chapel.
