“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)

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

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.

Dear Friends, It is both exhilarating and reassuring to see so many at Holy Mass. This is a positive sign of our parish, proclaiming our unity and reaffirms our love of Jesus. A fervent Deo Gratias for all that has been achieved so far and looking forward - let us keep up the good work.

Before Attending Mass 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. Please ensure that you arrive in good time and have a face-covering with you. Remember to put the face-covering on before you enter the church and only remove when outside the church - thank you. The exceptions are those which are granted for all other circumstances. Please let the stewards know when entering church if you are exempt, as this will make things easier for them and for you.

When booking for Mass; note that bookings end 24hours before the time of Mass (you will receive email confirmation of your booking)

Once Mass starts please do not enter the church. Stewards- I’m grateful to all who are acting as stewards and enabling us to celebrate Holy Mass in public. The stewards will show you where you can sit. Do not leave your place until asked to do so by the stewards.

    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.
