Welcome to St Ignatius’ parish!

My name is Fr Richard Aladics and I'm the parish priest here at St Ignatius', Ossett. I was ordained in 1988 and since then I have lived and worked in Leeds, Harrogate, Spain, Huddersfield and even Australia!

If you are new to the area or parish then you are very welcome to our community and to the many events that we host here at St Ignatius'. My hope for our parish is that by seeking to live the life of Jesus Christ more openly and more joyfully, we will attract others to Him.'

Who we are

Founded in 1877 and set in the rolling countryside to the west of Wakefield in Yorkshire, St Ignatius’ Church is the home of the Catholic community in Ossett, Horbury and the Calder villages. We seek to grow in the life of Jesus Christ and to draw others into his life.

‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me.’ John 14:6
