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

“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.

Welcome to the Parish of St Patrick's

We have just begun Mary’s Month. Each year during May we think of ways in which we give that place of honour to Our Blessed Mother. Any tokens of love and affection which mothers receive are welcomed and cherished. Mary is no exception, since she was, and continues to be, the Mother of those who follow her Divine Son. Honour any image of Mary that you have in your homes by giving it a special prominence during May; pray the Rosary, or a part of the Rosary each day alone or in our family groups; speak to her as a trusted friend, confidant and most beautiful of all mothers..

    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.
