This weekend is the first Sunday of Lent and its Gospel is the temptation of Christ by the devil.
We have three Masses:
8.00 a.m. Leeds Cathedral, Cookridge Street, Leeds
11.00 a.m. Sacred Heart, Broughton Hall, Skipton
12.30 p.m. St. Joseph's, Pakington Street, Bradford
There was a very pleasing attendance at St. Joseph's on Ash Wednesday which I hope will be replicated at the coming week's Mission at St. Joseph's.
Fr. Hall is taking as his theme the Seven Sacraments.
On Monday Father will address the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist. Starts at 7.00 p.m. with Low Mass followed by the talk. There will be an opportunity for questions following each talk.
On Tuesday we shall start at 6.30 p.m. with Ordinary Form Mass followed by a talk on Baptism and Confirmation. This fits in with the regular parish schedule.
On Wednesday we start at 7.00 p.m. with Low Mass and then a discourse on the Sacrament of the Sick or Unction.
On Thursday there will be a Solemn High Mass at 7.00 p.m. followed by teaching on Holy Orders and Matrimony.
On Friday there will be Low Mass at 7.00 p.m. followed by Father's treatment of the Sacrament of Penance.
Confessions will be available each evening - providing us with an opportunity to make our Easter Duties.
