Novacastrians have today been lighting candles at the Cathedral in prayer for the people of Paris in the wake of the terrorist attack.
A special candle-lighting ceremony will be part of the 6pm evening service on Sunday 15 November. The Dean of the Cathedral, Fr Stephen Williams, says that people of all faiths and none gather at the cathedral in times of crisis, and this is no exception.
Everyone is welcome to come and light a candle, he says, or to join the service tomorrow night.
The Very Rev’d Stephen Williams
Dean of Newcastle
