    Last Week   This Week  


OCTOBER is the Month traditionally dedicated to the Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary. What consolation the Rosary brings. Remembering the mysteries of Christ’s life and Our Lady’s life, we repeat Hail Mary after Hail Mary. Indeed, the mysteries of the Holy Rosary – are the mysteries of our own lives as well. As we pray the Rosary, we ask Our Lady to draw us closer to Jesus our Light. We remember as well that for many saints the Rosary was an indispensable part of their daily prayer.


Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve: to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary! Amen.

Hail Holy Queen

The bread that I will give, says the Lord, is my flesh for the life of the world.

Cf. Jn 6:51

Behold, I stand at the door and knock, says the Lord. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door to me, I will enter his house and dine with him, and he with me.

Rv 3:20

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.

Guardian Angel Prayer

    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.
