We Dare to Say - Lenten Talks

February 16, 23 | March 1, 8, 15 | 12:00pm - 2:00pm 

During Lent the Cathedral will host a series entitled "We Dare To Say". The resource, produced by the Catholic Bishops of England and Wales is for use by groups or individuals. It concentrates on the Our father.

Join us at noon for Stations of the Cross, then a simple soup lunch. After lunch we will begin each session.

2024 is the year of prayer in preparation for the Jubilee Year of 2025. This resource will help us to re-centre prayer in the life of our diocese.

Support the Cathedral

St Mary's is both a Cathedral and a parish Church.

As the Cathedral, it serves the whole of the Diocese of Middlesbrough, from the South bank of the river Tees to the North bank of the river Humber.

As a parish church, it serves Hemlington and Coulby Newham.

Your support helps ensure that it is a welcoming place where people can gather comfortably and safely, where there is space for quiet prayer and reflection and where liturgies can be celebrated with dignity.

Support CAFOD

CAFOD is the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development.

It supports projects all over the developing world.
