The Parish Church of Saint Matthew Big Lamp ~ Newcastle
Remembering Father Robert
26 th    August   is   the   anniversary   of   the   death   of   Father   Robert   Daunt,   the   first   Vicar   and   founder   of   the parish   of   Saint   Matthew,   Newcastle.      He   was   instrumental   in   laying   down   the   tradition   of   the   parish   to which we are the heirs.  On   the   day   of   his   death   some   members   of   the   congregations   went   to   visit   his   grave   in   Elswick   Cemetry and say some brief prayers for him. The next day, we sung a Requiem Mass for him.
