Madonna House: a marriage of family life and the gospel.” by Sr. Cheryl-Ann Smith. “We consider ourselves a spiritual family in the Church and we are also consecrated lay people (and priests). Our spirituality is incarnational, so we try to relate everything we do to the Gospel and that's something that everyone can live out. We believe it's a beautiful path to holiness”.

All talks are held at St. Mary’s RC Cathedral, Coulby Newman, Middlesbrough, TS8 0TW at 7.30pm for 7.45pm. Further information about the talks planned on the above dates can be found on this poster.

Further information about the Newman Association can be found on their website.
