WELCOME TO THE PARISH OF BLESSED EDMUND SYKES
Message from Fr Duane
Once again we appeal for more people to volunteer to be stewards, it really isn’t as onerous as it sounds, if you are interested please contact me on 0113.249.0429.
I really would like to extend the number of Masses that are available in the parish and reopen Our Lady of Good Counsel as soon as possible – but if there are insufficient Stewards than I will not be allowed to do so! So over to you.
You are probably also aware of the latest government announcement; we will need to wear masks in Church from the 8th August! We do have a limited supply of masks and the Diocese is working to secure a supply and hopefully they will get back to me next week.
We are fortunate to be able to attend Mass during this Pandemic, please spare a thought for those in our parishes in Bradford, Huddersfield and the surrounding areas who are once again in lockdown and unable to attend Mass, along with all the other restrictions that this implies.
There are different ways you can make a donation to the Parish.
You can make a donation online by clicking the following link.
As previously highlighted the relics of three saints have been found in St Nicholas Church.
Below are photographs of the boxes and envelopes they were discovered in. If you have any information or memories of how they came to be deposited at St Nicholas, please would you drop Fr Duane a line. At the end of the lockdown they will be placed on display within the Parish Church.
