Share your Mater Memories

To celebrate the Mater’s Centenary we are inviting staff, volunteers and members of the community to share a story or memory relating to Calvary Mater Newcastle. It may be from its earlier days as Newcastle Mater Misericordiae Hospital or more recently.  A story that captures something of the spirit of this wonderful centre of care that quickly became an institution in Newcastle. Known and loved as The Mater, many of our community were born here, some of whom are of a generation who now also die here. It is a place of significance that staff hold with care and the community cherish. Our specialities have changed but throughout a century of care the Mater remains at the heart of the community.

These stories will be displayed at Calvary Mater Newcastle, and also may feature on our facebook page and website.

How much you write is completely up to you. You can write as much or as little as you like. If you have lots of stories or memories you might find it easier to break them down into different sections.

If you have photographs you’d like to share with us to accompany your story or memory we would be delighted to receive a copy of them.
