Cleveland Newman Circle

The Cleveland Newman Circle forms part of a national organisation of lay people, clergy and religious who try to foster a deeper understanding of our faith in today's contemporary world through talks, discussions and workshops held at the local level and through national conferences. Named after Cardinal Newman, who supported the need for an educated laity, the Association is the British member of the International Catholic Movement for Intellectual and Cultural Affairs, Pax Romana.
It is organised through local circles throughout the country. The Cleveland Newman Circle straddles the two Dioceses of Middlesbrough, and Hexham and Newcastle with its current members having addresses ranging from as far afield as North Yorkshire to Tyne and Wear.
Most meetings are currently held in the Nevers Room of St Bernadette’s, Nunthorpe, Middlesbrough at 7.30pm. These usually consist of six open speaker meetings between September and April; plus any other meetings/events that may occur.
