Extraordinary Form Mass still on Tyneside on Sundays
With the last EF Mass at St Dominic's Priory, Newcastle next Sunday (7th July) it is concerning that many of the attendees have not been made aware that the Sunday EF Mass will continue at St Joseph's in Gateshead. This church has, probably, the best public transport link for the EF in the diocese being directly adjacent to Gateshead Metro Interchange which is also the town bus station. Bishop Cunningham obviously had the needs of the Latin Mass faithful in mind when he moved Fr Michael Brown back to Gateshead when Fr Adrian Dixon begins his sabbatical. The bishop obviously recognised the need to retain the EF Mass on Tyneside following the reassignment of Fr Leo Edgar OP. Of course the other EF Masses in the diocese continue unchanged with Mass at 9am at St Mary's, Barnard Castle and at 9.30am at Sacred Heart and English Martyrs at Thornley. Please pass on this important information.
