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

The church has re-opened for public Mass on Tuesdays and Saturdays at 10am. These and other private Masses on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays are live streamed on http://www.youtube.com.  To take part online click here

If you wish to take part in a public Mass, you must reserve a place by either emailing welcome@holynamejesmond.co.uk or telephoning 0191 281 0940.  Please state the date of the Mass, your name, your telephone number and the number of people in your party.

Even with the easing of lockdown, this is still a time of  uncertainty and challenge. However, 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.

Although our parish groups cannot meet physically, 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.

(Fr) Michael Campion

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.
