Second Bishop visit to Old Bar
Some years ago, Bishop Peter Stuart, then Assistant Bishop of Newcastle, celebrated the Holy Eucharist at the Anglican Service at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church, Old Bar.
This was believed to be the first time that an Anglican Bishop had celebrated the Eucharist in a Catholic church in the diocese, and possibly further afield.
The Anglican congregation of Old Bar have been meeting in this church for many years now.
Last Sunday, Assistant Bishop Charlie Murry repeated that celebration.
It was the first time that Bishop Charlie had officiated in a Catholic Church as a bishop, but had done it elsewhere as a priest.
