St. Dominic’s Priory Church

St. Dominics Logo

St. Dominic’s Priory Catholic Church is situated in the Ouseburn-Shieldfield arts and student quarter, taking in also the Quayside. Founded in 1873 to serve what was then an impoverished industrial quarter, it rapidly gained an outreach across the North-East. Today St. Dominic’s gathers a congregation from all over Newcastle. We are commited to being a place of welcome and sanctuary for our neighbourhood’s residents and visitors alike, and as part of this we are a church for the arts. We put on regular film evenings in collaboration with The Holy Biscuit arts hub, and work with several artists, both professional and students. We have also just started a new choir.
