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.
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.
“Even our soul itself becomes more beautiful when beauty meets us, takes hold of us, and fires us with enthusiasm.”
Holy Mass - You can leave home to attend Holy Mass, a funeral, a cemetery or a remembrance garden.
The Government have asked that each place of worship should re-evaluate their own local situation and examine all factors that could affect good COVID security
Sufficient stewarding and management of the venue
Sufficient cleaning after acts of communal worship
Maintaining good social distancing in the space available along with good ventilation and the compulsory wearing of face coverings
The length of exposure time for an act of worship is critical and should be minimised – anything that is not necessary should be omitted
Those who have gathered for worship should not mingle before or after the service outside of the church. They should disperse immediately.
Please remember, if your health is not good and you are vulnerable, if you have a cough or cold or temperature you should stay at home. For more information visit www.gov.uk/coronavirus

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.
