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.

*****     *****     *****     *****

The UK Government has eased all legal restrictions, but as a Diocese, we are currently retaining the covid-safe protocols we have followed throughout the covid pandemic .

A review in early September has stated that we must continue to follow social distancing in Church, which means we have a much smaller number of seats available than normal and we are also recommending to everyone that face coverings continue to be worn at Mass.  As we have only 18 benches available (which is only half our normal seating), you must continue to book your seat for Sunday Mass. 

You are asked to use the Hand Gel on entry to Church and to make use of the gel in the benches whilst in church. 

Face coverings should also be worn whilst in church

Your Weekly Offering

During the Coronavirus Pandemic, especially 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;  you can keep your offering until such time that we 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.
