Rome Mass streamed into our chapel

Residents living in our St Catherine’s nursing home in Newcastle have been able to celebrate Mass with Pope Francis in their very own chapel.

The live TV link into St Catherine’s chapel from the Vatican gave our residents the incredibly special experience of being able to feel part of the Mass taking place in Rome.

“Throughout lockdown, we’ve used our large screen TVs in our lounge and chapel to bring live Mass from around the UK to our residents,” said our nursing homes’ Spiritual Lead, Nicola Milne. “This is the first time we‘ve been able to link up with Rome and it meant so much to our residents – it even prompted Eveline to say that it was such a wonderful experience she felt she was dreaming.”
