Welcome to the Parish of the Holy Name in Jesmond, Newcastle upon Tyne.

We have a a live-stream of Mass from Holy Name every day, except Monday, at 10am and you are most welcome to join us. To do so, click here

This on-going period of lock-down continues to be a time of extraordinary uncertainty and challenge but we go on trusting in God’s providence, as Jesus did in his darkest hours. May the courage and strength we draw from our faith – and our solidarity with each other – get us through these difficult times and enable us to be of assistance to those in need of support.

If you live alone and need any help  – with shopping, collecting medication, dog walking or just need someone to talk to – please don’t hesitate to contact me.

You can keep in touch with our parish by visiting the Newsletter, Blog and Video pages on this website which are updated regularly. Suggestions for items to be included are welcome.

It’s an eerie feeling celebrating Mass on my own in a locked church. However, be assured that all members and friends of Holy Name, their families and all those working in the NHS are prayed for daily.

Who We Are

Holy Name is an open, friendly and generous Catholic community in the heart of Tyneside. In the spirit of Pope Francis, Bishop of Rome, our parish is welcoming to all:

Young or old,
married, single or divorced
– and whatever your sexuality –
there is a place for you in our parish.

Our parish has a growing, talented congregation – growing in the numbers taking part in Mass, in the diversity of participants, including young families, and in the range of social, spiritual and cultural activities.

You will be most welcome to join us.

If you are not a regular church-goer but are searching for a spiritual home where you can find acceptance and God’s healing love, you will be especially welcome. You may be hesitant about doing this if you are visiting Holy Name for the first time or, perhaps, returning to church after an absence. If this is the case, and you so wish, our parish priest, Fr Michael Campion, would be happy to meet privately with you beforehand.

Holy Name is an inclusive, welcoming Parish. Here are just some of the activities we run and values we share that make our community so special.
