The interior of our church was recently redecorated by ES Decor of Ossett, who did a wonderful job. Our church, which holds the Lord's presence, is again bright and colourful, in his honour.
Since we all have a responsibility to take part in the Mass on Sundays, we as a parish see that we have a responsibility especially towards families with young children, to support their participation in the Mass and to enable the contribution that both adults and children can make in the life of the parish. We offer the following accompaniment to families. Once a month at the 6pm Saturday Mass there is a Children's Liturgy in the upper room (above the sacristy). This if for children who have not yet made their First Communion. They are called to the front of the church just after the start of the Mass. This monthly event will begin on Saturday 22nd October 2022, and subsequent dates will be advertised in advance. At the 10am Sunday Masses, and starting on Sunday 30th October, a Children's Liturgy will be held in the side-chapel, aimed at younger children. Families will be greeted in the porch on arriving at church and invited to take part in this, if they would like to. If you are 18+ and would like to become a leader, please get in touch. If you would like to assist with these events, please speak with one of the Children's Liturgy leaders.
Our Garden Party is being held on Sunday 2nd July from 11am onwards. This summer event is organised by both the parish and the school and all the proceeds are shared between the parish and the Friends of St Ignatius. You are warmly invited to take part. There will be stalls, games, and refreshments on the school field.
You are most welcome to come to our Choir rehearsals and see if this is something that you would like to be a part of. Our Choir generally rehearses for the 10am Sunday Mass under the tutelage of Rob, our organist and Choir Master. The Choir Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings at 7.30pm in the Parish Centre. Next Rehearsal is 27th April 2023.
