The Filipino Community of the Diocese of Hexham & Newcastle would like to thank Bishop Robert and Dean Rev. Father Simon for letting their members have a monthly Filipino Mass at St Mary’s Cathedral, which they are so happy and grateful, by this Filipinos from different areas of our Diocese have a chance to gather once a month to share the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and to unite and to enhance their relationship with one other as a children of God.

It was a very successful turn out for the last three months, which started with our traditional Simbang Gabi for Christmas. Last Saturday 26 February they had 170 people attended the Holy Mass.

The next Filipino Mass will be on Saturday 26 March, starting at 5.30pm with Lenten recollection and followed by the Holy Mass at 6.00pm. They would to invite you all if you can join them too, everyone is welcome. The Mass will be celebrated by Rev. Fr Abel Villarojo, a Filipino Priest based in Durham.

Thank you very much for your support and God bless.
