Bishop Robert is welcomed by our schools

On Tuesday 26 March a schools' celebration was held at St. Mary's Cathedral to welcome Bishop Robert to the Diocese.

The congregation of over 600 people was made up of pupils, staff and school chaplains from our 156 Diocesan schools.

Bishop Robert was presented with a stole by two children whose ideas were used in the design. He was also presented with a book of welcome that included a greeting page from each school. The celebration liturgy included readings, prayers and songs on the theme 'Called to Serve'. St. John Vianney School, Hartlepool, and St. Anthony's School, Sunderland, provided choirs. After the celebration, Bishop Robert spent time greeting pupils and adults from each school individually.

Please see our gallery for photographs of the day.
