The actual Feast Day is Monday 7th June. This marks the end of the 850th anniversary year of St Robert’s death (1159).
- We are marking the occasion with a walk to the abbey grounds for Vespers (Evening Prayer) on Sunday 6th June. Everyone is invited to gather at St Robert’s church at 3.00pm for the walk to the abbey. There will be refreshments in the church hall when we return. I am glad to say that some parishioners from our sister parish of St Robert of Newminster, Fenham, Newcastle, will be joining us for the walk and Vespers. I will let the other Churches of Morpeth know about it as well.
- On the actual Feast Day (Monday 7th June) there will be Mass at 6.00pm followed by a Family Ceilidh and pie and pea supper at the Riverside Lodge starting at 7.00pm. Tickets are £7.00 for adults and £4 for children and will be available after Mass this weekend and from Monday 24th May they will be on sale from the presbytery and the school. Don’t be disappointed get your tickets in good time.
Fr Jim and myself look forward to joining you for these important parish celebrations.
