Next weekend sees the visit of the relics of St. Therese de Lisieux, our Cathedral will become a little Lisieux for the weekend, as Bishop Roche reminds us in his pastoral letter today.
Holy Spirit parishioners from Heckmodwike will be visiting the relics on Sunday and so there will be no Mass at Heckmondwike on that Sunday.
The Masses at the weekend will all be Votive Masses of St. Therese, this is because in the 1962 calendar, her feast is October 3rd. and all Sunday's Masses are to be Votive Masses of St. Therese, this will apply to both the new and old Rites of Mass.
Morning Masses at 7.00a.m. at St. Mary's Batley continue.
On Monday 5th. October there will be the annual torchlight procession at Batley culminating in Solemn Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament by the Bishop. Details later this week.
Mass at Sacred Heart, Howden, near Goole on Tuesday 29th. September at 7.30p.m. This is a first for us. Thanks to the Middlesbrough rep for organizing this Mass who lives in that area.
Mass will be offered again at Bewerley Grange Chapel on Tuesday 27th. October at 11.3oa.m.
Mass for the feast of All Souls, Monday 2nd. November at 7.30p.m. at St. Mary's, Batley.
Plans are well under way for a new wave of regular Masses and for the feast of the Immaculate Conception.
God bless the Pope.
