Renovation of St. Mary’s Church (With architect's drawings)

MarysimageA message From Newry Parish Finance Committee:

We write to you in relation to the proposed renovation of St. Mary’s Church.

This is the oldest site of worship in the Parish and the burial ground for generations of Newry people. It has been obvious for some time that St. Mary’s is in need of major refurbishment and we have been working on the finances and the scope of this project for several years.

We are happy to report that we have been promised £150,000 of funding from the National Lottery. We, as a Parish community, need to raise circa £500,000, the balance of the estimated expenditure. This amount must be raised separately from, and in addition to the normal monies raised to run the Parish through the Offertory Promise.

Mass of celebration and thanksgiving for parish volunteers

tg6A Mass of celebration and thanksgiving was held at the Cathedral on the evening of Wednesday 22nd October 2014.

This happy occasion attracted a congregation of hundreds, including representatives of many voluntary groups working within the parish. Each group placed a lighted candle on the altar, and as you will see from the photographs, they provided a radiant witness to the vitality of our parish and to the good works of its people.

The Mass was concelebrated by Canon Francis Brown, Canon Michael Hackett, Father Tony Corr, Father Krzysztof Kosciolek SChr, Father Colum Muprhy and Father Cesare Decio O.P. who also preached the homily.

The Mass was organised by the Parish Pastoral Council and its Chairperson, John McClelland, spoke to thank all volunteers for their invaluable contribution.
