Welcome to the website of the Roman Catholic Parish of St Robert of Newminster, Morpeth

The Parish Priest is Fr Peter J Stott

St Robert’s is a Gem Church, which is normally open for worship and quiet prayer during daylight hours.  However because of the COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic we are unable to open our church for daytime visiting and apologise to all those who wish to visit our lovely church.  At the moment we are only open for Mass.

Morpeth is the County Town of Northumberland. It is a small market town situated in South Northumberland on the banks of the River Wansbeck and St Robert of Newminster Church stands in a beautiful spot next to the river.

St Robert of Newminster Parish shares it’s site with St Robert’s First School and has active Catholic Women’s League, St Vincent de Paul and Catenian groups running.

St Robert of Newminster Church is fully open for Mass

It is not necessary to book for Mass, and face coverings are now optional (you may wear a face covering if you wish to).  All we ask is that you use the hand gel on entry to church and also use the gel provided in the benches before receiving Holy Communion.

Details of Mass times can be found on our Newsletter

Your Weekly Offering

If you are not coming out to attend Public Masses, you may be wondering about what to do about your weekly offering to the Church.  You can drop off your weekly envelope through the letterbox of the Presbytery;  or you can keep your offering until such time that you are once again back to attending Church; or to make your life much easier; you could complete a Standing Order Mandate, where you ask your bank to take your collection amount out of your account and pay it directly into the Parish Account.  If you wish to do this, we ask you to contact our Parish Office and a copy of the Mandate will be sent to you.

Another way of making your weekly offering is direct via BACS.  You can go online to your Bank account and make an online payment.  Send an email to the parish email address and the details will be forwarded for you to follow to make a BACS payment.
