Partnership Events and News




Blackfriars Partnership are planning a pilgrimage to Holy Island, Lindisfarne on Saturday 19th of August. A coach has been booked, leaving St. John Vianney at 8:30am for Holy Island. For those who wish to take part, pilgrims can walk across the Causeway which will take approximately 1.5 hrs. Please bring strong footwear. Mass will be in the Catholic chapel at 12.30pm and we depart Holy Island at 3.00pm for Seahouses, departing there 5pm and arriving back at St. John Vianney around 6.00pm.
Cost is £10.00 per adult, under 16's travelling free. If you would like to join us on the day, please sign the list at the back of St John Vianney church or contact Claire in the office at St John Vianney. Places need to be paid for by Sunday 13th August and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. You are free to use you own transport and meet either at the causeway or for the Mass.


SVP Caravan to let
The SVP Tyne Central Council are delighted to announce that they have purchased a newly refurbished Caravan to provide holidays for families in the North East.
The primary aim of the caravan is to offer free accommodation to those families who may otherwise struggle to have a family holiday.
In order to use the caravan to its full potential and to help towards covering site fees and running costs, the SVP would like to encourage members and friends to also book the caravan outside of school holiday time at a rate of £400 per week.
