Pentecost IX

Mass at Halifax on Saturday resumes tomorrow as Mgr Smith has now returned from Rome and Lourdes.

Masses this weekend:

St. Mary's, Gibbet Street, Halifax - 6.00 p.m.
Sacred Heart, Broughton Hall, Skipton - 11.00 a.m.
St. Joseph's, Pontefract Road, Castleford - 3.00 p.m.
Holy Spirit, Bath Road, Heckmondwike- 4.00 p.m.

I see that one of the worst kept secrets ever has now become official news and that the Oratorians are to take over the parish of St. Wilfrid's in York. The Oratory at Oxford is much too small for the community there and I understand that some of the community are unable to reside in the presbytery (where I have served Mass several times).

It will be interesting to see how this develops and if the York Oratory enjoys the same success as those in Birmingham, Oxford, Manchester and London.
