Newry Cathedral is the number two visitor attraction in the entire Newry, Mourne & Down area, according to a new Statistics Agency report.
This area also has the third-highest number of visitors.
Our magnificent cathedral, 190 years old this year, truly is a jewel in our midst. It was built, and is maintained, through the generosity of many generations of people from Newry and far beyond. We can all be justly proud of it. You can find out more and read the full report hereRead more...
A message from the Administrator:
Several years ago parishioners were invited to indicate their desire to have a grave in St. Mary’s Cemetery. Currently we have a list of names of those who declared their intention at that time.
St. Mary’s has been a popular burial site for parishioners for many generations. Recently, a number of volunteers have begun to carry out a survey of the cemetery, in order to determine graves available and deemed suitable for burial. These graves are being identified by placing a post at each corner of each plot and placing tape around them. Any person who believes that a grave has been wrongly identified, should contact the parish office with proof of ownership. The person whose name is on the deed for the grave determines ownership of the grave.
Once that work has been completed those whose names are on this list will be given the opportunity to purchase a grave. It will then be their responsibility to mark out the grave allocated and ensure that it is kept clean and tidy. This work will take some months to complete and if there are any free graves after that allocation has been made, parishioners will be able to purchase any free spaces in the graveyard.
