Cathedral lecture

Apologies for my late posting of this regarding the last in this cycle's Cathedral lectures. I don't know how this slipped my mind.
This evening at 7.00 p.m. in the Wheeler Hall at the Cathedral in Leeds world renowned scholar  Professor Richard Rex will deliver the last in this series of lectures.

Professor Richard Rex

Richard Rex is Professor of Reformation History in the University of Cambridge and Polkinghorne Fellow in Theology and Religious Studies, Queens’ College, Cambridge. An expert in the history of the Tudors and of the Reformation, he is the author of several books,  including The Theology of John Fisher (1991) and The Tudors (2006). His most recent book is The Making of Martin Luther (2017).

“The Church and Change: Observations on the Present Crisis in Catholicism”

(As the ramifications of the sexual abuse crisis threaten to overwhelm national hierarchies and even to touch the curia itself, the Church is facing its deepest crisis in governance since the Great Schism (1378-1417). And as Catholic teaching on marriage is challenged in the name of a “new paradigm”, the Church is facing its deepest crisis in doctrine since the Reformation. Change must come, and change will come. But what must change, and what must not? And how shall we hold onto the faith in the years to come?) Many thanks to John Beaumont for organising the lectures again. Once more these have proved to be a great source of food for thought and inspiration and I look forward to next year's cycle.

Epiphany

This Sunday is the Feast of the Epiphany and we have two Masses:

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

Confessions at call.

It was very pleasing to see so many people at our first Mass at St. Joseph's, Brighouse on Monday. Fr. Hall assures me that there was a lot of interest and positive comments passed about the Mass and I am sure that this will become a regular venue for the Mass as we get into the new year.
