Eternal life does not merely mean a life that lasts forever but rather a new quality of existence, fully immersed in God's love.

Pope Benedict XVI

Go out to the whole world, and proclaim the good news to all creation

Mark 16:15

Imagine a sower going out to sow. Some seeds fell on rich soil and produced their crop, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.

My refuge and fortress, my God in whom I trust.

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.
