TV coverage encourages ‘resting’ Catholic to return

Fr Michael Corbett, St Andrew’s Church, Newcastle in advance of the arrival of the Relics, said:

‘All of a sudden we’ve been inundated with enquiries. The whole thing has come alive and we’ve been hearing some lovely stories. Last night the regional TV station covered the visit and shortly after I had a man on the phone who shared that his mother had been a Catholic, but that he had stopped practising his faith many years ago. The TV report has awakened in him a desire to come back to Church. This story alone, the response of this one man, makes our efforts worthwhile.’

He added:

‘St Andrews is a small church and is the oldest in Newcastle. The street that it’s on is named after the priest who built it – Fr Worswick – who went on to build the Catholic Cathedral in the city. The visit of the Relics is such a great privilege.’
