This Sunday, 15 February 2015, we welcome as celebrant and preacher at the 6:30pm Student Mass Most Rev. fr. Malcolm McMahon OP, Archbishop of Liverpool and Metropolitan of the Northern Province which includes our Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle. Archbishop Malcolm served as Prior Provincial of the English Dominicans before becoming Bishop of Nottingham in 2000. He was installed at Liverpool on 1 May 2014, and as Metropolitan is Chairman of the Trustees of Ushaw College here in Durham. We warmly welcome him as he joins his confrères here for the first time.
Following Mass all students are invited to an Open Dinner: come through to the Chaplaincy room after Mass and meet Archbishop Malcolm over a tasty buffet dinner and a glass of wine.
On Monday 16 February we will be joined for a simple Mass at the slightly earlier time of 8:45am not only by Archbishop Malcolm, but also by Bishop Séamus and other bishops of the Province of Liverpool.
