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