Midnight Mass at St Wilfrid`s, Gateshead

When the Extraordinary Form Sunday Mass started in the 90`s in Gateshead it was at St Wilfrid`s. At Christmas it was decided to have midnight Mass there again rather than the normal venue of St Joseph`s because it was less likely to attract passing drunks-not being in the town centre-and  the heating is very efficient, unlike at St Joseph`s. In the event 65 people came and many said they enjoyed being back at St Wilfrid`s. It was a pleasure to be joined by local FSSP seminarian James Mawdsley. Many thanks to Pat for the photo.
