Thank you to those people who said they were encouraged to see that our albeit weekly Mass was being advertised here again and I have one or two ideas about supplementing these bulletins.
Mass this Sunday - 1.00 p.m. at St. Patrick’s, Westgate, Bradford - is a Low Mass and the final hymn will be O Mother blest, as we near the end of August.
On Tuesday 29th there will be Mass in the Ordinary Form at noon to mark the departure of Fr. Columba CFR who is rector at St. Patrick’s and who is taking up a new position in Limerick in his native Ireland. Fr Columba has been amazing in all the time we have been having Mass there each Sunday and Holyday. His patience at my initial incompetence with the digital lights and other domestic matters was as instructive as it was enviable. I shall miss him and wish him every joy in his new post. Some of you will remember that Fr. joined us for the Good Friday liturgy when Fr. Frantisek was the celebrant. Fr Frantisek will replace Fr. Columba as the rector. I am looking forward to working with Fr. Frantisek as much as I did Fr. Columba.
Confessions generally available at call before or after Mass.
