Batley & Pentecost XVII

There will be Mass at St. Mary's Batley at 6.00 p.m. on Wednesday 19th September which Fr. Hall will offer again. The parish secretary has e-mailed to say she will ask Father Hall to make this a regular Mass.

The traditional Batley Torchlight Procession returns this year following the break last year because of repairs to the roof of the church.
The procession will begin at Batley Market Square at 7.30 p.m. and go from there to St. Mary of the Angels church. His Lordship the Bishop will attend the event. This is on the first Monday of October, so there will be a future reminder.

This weekend marks the seventeenth Sunday of Pentecost and we have three Masses on Sunday:

8.00 a.m. Leeds Cathedral, Great George Street, Leeds
11.00 a.m. Sacred Heart, Broughton Hall, Skipton
12.30 p.m. St. Joseph's, Pakington Street, Bradford

This weekend marks the sixteenth Sunday after Pentecost with the Gospel of our Lord curing the man afflicted with the dropsy.
We have two Masses:

11.00 a.m. Sacred Heart, Broughton Hall, Skipton
12.30 p.m. St. Joseph's, Pakington Street, Bradford (missa cantata)

Confessions at call.

The Mass last week at Broughton was a memorable occasion as the St. Austin singers from Wakefield sang the Mass with a mixture of polyphony and Gregorian chant. Many thanks to them.
There were a lot of new people and families at St. Joseph's last week and we were pleased to welcome back Richard Nicyperowicz who played the organ for us. It was great to hear Purcell's Trumpet Tune as the priest processed back to the sacristy.

We have two Masses:

11.00 a.m. Sacred Heart, Broughton Hall, Skipton - missa cantata

As the summer draws to an end there are several high Masses planned before Christmas. Already preparations are underway for the annual Requiem for previous bishops at the Cathedral in November. Again this will be a Solemn Mass. I shall produce a fuller and detailed list shortly.

* Anybody wishing to attend the event in York on Saturday by public transport is advised that a strike has very much limited the accessibility by railway to York station at the usual frequent and regular times. Mass is at 12.10 p.m. at St Wilfrid's but this year pilgrims are gathering at the Bar Convent at 10.30 a.m.  i.e. before the Mass.
