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.

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.

Welcome to the Parish of St Patrick's

PLEASE NOTE - ALL CHURCHES CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
  • I never imagined a day would come and certainly not in my lifetime – that our churches are closed, possibly for the first time in our history, for everyone’s protection! I would like to say how grateful and impressed I am that in our community of faith, we are rallying around to support each other by all means available. Please click on both buttons for the 2 part newsletter. Also visit St Chad’s Cathedral in Birmingham on Holy Thursday: www.stchadscathedral.org.uk
    A beautiful message from Pope Francis, providing words of comfort and hope in this difficult time: "Tonight before falling asleep think about when we will return to the street. When we hug again, when all the shopping together will seem like a party. Let’s think about when the coffees will return to the bar, the small talk, the photos close to each other. We think about when it will be all a memory but normalcy will seem an unexpected and beautiful gift. We will love everything that has so far seemed futile to us. Every second will be precious. Swims at the sea, the sun until late, sunsets, toasts, laughter. We will go back to laughing together. Strength and courage. See you soon! "

    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.
