Missa Cantata was celebrated at midnight on Christmas Eve at St Mary's Church, Forest Hall, Newcastle.
Parish Priest & LMS Northern Chaplain Fr Michael Brown was the celebrant with the Schola Sancti Baedae providing the music. The celebration began at 11.30pm with carols followed by the Blessing of the Crib then Mass. A congregation of between 40-50 were present & refreshments with mulled wine were served in the parish hall followed Mass.
Once again apologies for anyone expecting exact figures for the congregation but, suffice it to say, everyone present was suitably uplifted.
