Remembering Father Robert
26thAugust 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.
