Masses this weekend for the fourth Sunday after Pentecost:
Saturday 15th. June St. Mary's, Gibbet Street, Halifax, 6.00 p.m.
Sunday 16th. June Sacred Heart, Broughton Hall, 11.00 a.m.
St. Joseph's, Pontefract Road, Castleford, 3.00 p.m.
Holy Spirit, Bath Road, Heckmondwike, 4.00 p.m.
Reminder that next week (23rd. June) we have a Missa Cantata at St. Joseph's, Bilton, Harrogate at 4.00 p.m. A faithful parishioner has been doing all the spade work to organise our Masses over recent months there and I am very grateful to him. It has been of some concern to me that some priests in the Harrogate deanery have refused to advertise these Masses, as if there has been no Summorum Pontificum. Alas some clergy are still locked in a 1970s time warp. I have no desire to invite controversy but such pastors really do need to take a reality check and realise that orthodoxy didn't end with Vatican II and that the Ordinary and Extraordinary Forms of the Mass can co-exist in harmony. We still profess the same Creed and follow the same Catechism - or do we?
