    “Even our soul itself becomes more beautiful when beauty meets us, takes hold of us, and fires us with enthusiasm.” From Aesthetics

    Dietrich von Hildebrand (1889-1977)

    Angel of God, my Guardian dear, to whom God's love commits me here, ever this day (or night) be at my side, to light and guard, to rule and guide. Amen.

    Guardian Angel Prayer

    Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

    Hail Mary

    Welcome to the Parish of St Patrick's

    SACRED HEART AND ST. PATRICK’S (SOWERBY BRIDGE) REOPENING FOR MASS

    With effect from Saturday 25 July / Sunday Mass 26 July 2020, it will be possible to attend Mass in person at Sacred Heart & St. Patrick’s. Because of government guidelines on social distancing numbers are limited (35). Consequently, if you wish to attend you must obtain a ticket in advance using our online booking system. This will enable us to observe the government regulations which ask that we keep a record for 21 days of the names contact details of those who visit our churches; it will assist NHS Test and Trace and help with investigating local outbreaks. If you have booked a ticket for Mass and subsequently find that you are unable to attend the Mass, please return it via the booking system so that someone else can attend Holy Mass. Please remember, if your health is not good and you are vulnerable, if you have a cough or cold or temperature you should stay at home.

  • MASS TIMETABLE

  • Thursday 7.30pm
  • FRIDAY MASS has been suspended for the foreseeable future .

  • SATURDAY VIGIL 5.30PM – (NEW MASS TIME) MUST BOOK ONLINE

    For weekday Masses - there will be no need to book online. This will help those who have no internet access, however, it will be limited to 35 only and names and contact details must be recorded to comply with the government regulations (see above). Please understand that if you turn up at the last minute you may find that all 35 places have been taken and you will need to make other arrangements..

    I ask everyone to respect and follow the guidance that will be issued and the instructions in church.

    As indicated above, we need to think of the whole week as a Sunday. By think in this new way we can increase the opportunity of Mass for all.

    For the first few weeks please only come to one Mass in the week, think of the whole week as a Sunday, this will increase the opportunity of Mass for all. Remember that as the Sunday obligation has been suspended and every day is like a Sunday. If you can attend the Weekday Mass, please do so and this will take the pressure from Saturday vigil and Sunday. Thank you. If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions contact Fr Larkin … It will be good to be together again ...

    The history of St Patrick's

    Originally a small hamlet, Sowerby Bridge in Saxon times, had a little church called St Peters (at the top of the hill), which was, of course, before the Reformation, Roman Catholic. Just before this, in 1526, during the reign of Henry VIII, a new church was built on the banks of the River Calder, but ten years later, when Henry split from Rome, this church became Anglican.
