The Ovingham partnership recently did a walk with our confirmation candidates.

A group of parishioners from the Ovingham Partnership accompanied each other on the ‘Emmaus Walk’ from Wylam to Ovingham along the Tyne Riverside route, stopping at St. Mary the Virgin church for prayers. This was a unique journey of faith and accompaniment to thank God for the gift to us through the sacrament of baptism and to celebrate the beginning of our Emmaus Confirmation programme.
