May in Newry Parish

Newry Cathedral News

Newry Cathedral May Altar

May is a special time in the Church calendar when we honour Mary, the mother of Jesus. Again this year, the parish is inviting the faithful to bring flowers to the Cathedral during the month of May, to decorate Our Lady’s altar. We hope that this little act of prayer and devotion will be a sign of the vibrant faith of our parish community. Simply place your flowers at

Our Lady’s altar and say a prayer. We will put them in vases for you and look after them.

“O Mary, we crown thee with blossoms today, Queen of the Angels and Queen of the May”.

May Devotions in the Cathedral

May Devotions in the Cathedral and on the webcam at 2.00pm during the five Sundays of May. The service will be led by the Parish Faith Development Team and will include prayer and reflection.
