Happy new year

Advent is upon us.

Masses this weekend

Saturday (Vigil) St Mary's, Gibbet Street, Halifax. 6.00 p.m.
Sunday              Sacred Heart, Broughton Hall, Skipton. 11.00 a.m.
                        St. Joseph's, Pontefract Road, Castleford. 3.00 p.m.

Reminder that there is Mass every day except Sundays at Sacred Heart, Broughton at 9.30 a.m.

On Wednesday I shall be giving my little talk at the Cathedral's Wheeler Hall as part of the regular series, this is the third in this present series. My topic is about the life, works and influence of Monsignor Ronald Knox. Squeezing this into 40 odd minutes will be interesting, I hope. The talk starts at 7.00 p.m.

Ad multos annos, Bishop Stock


The above picture of our new Bishop, Marcus Stock is from the Leeds Diocese's website. I hope they do not mind my using it.
 May I take this opportunity to wish His Lordship all good wishes and prayers on his episcopal ordination as 10th bishop of Leeds.

Ad multos annos!

This weekend's Masses for Pentecost XXIII include:

Saturday (Vigil) St Mary's, Gibbet Street, Halifax, 6.00 p.m.
Sunday               Sacred Heart, Broughton Hall, Skipton, 11.00 a.m.
                         St. Joseph's, Pontefract Rd. Castleford, 3.00 p.m. 

A Catholic colleague at school today told me that she had recently seen my talk about Monsignor Ronald Knox advertised (on the Cathedral noticeboard) for December in the Wheeler Hall . This scared me as I still have a lot to do to it having started and roughly finished it in May. Details to follow.

Please remember to pray for those who have gone before us marked with the sign of faith in this month of November dedicated as ever to the souls of the faithful departed.
