Sunday 16th October

This relic, a lock of hair of Mother Teresa of Calcutta, came to our Church for the first time today. On the third Sunday of every month there is a Mass in the Syro Malabar Rite, usually starting at 3pm. Once a year, in October, the month of Our Lady of the Rosary, there is a very large celebration with people coming together from other areas in the North East. Today people came from Middlesbrough, York, Hull and Sheffield. About 100 people, mainly from Kerala, came for a 3 hour Service, including Mass and a Procession outside. Afterwards, there was a Reception in the Church Hall, including some performing arts followed by some beautiful Indian food.
