We are encouraged to pray the rosary daily if possible, as individuals and even better as a family . Amongst all our other needs and intercessions, we need to pray earnestly for the intercession of Our Lady in our troubled times, and for an end to the devastating Covid virus, particularly as winter now approaches and many fear the virus is going to get worse again. Once a week a group of parishioners are also going to pray together online, using a programme called Zoom. If you would like to join in please click the link below or find the link on our Parish Facebook page.
Topic: Parish of St Mary rosary group
Time: Each Friday at 7.00pm

For many of us this year, 2020 has been a very difficult year, especially for those of us who have lost a loved one or someone else that we know. To commemorate those who have died, we have created a Tree of Remembrance at St. Peter's. The idea is that you
write the name of someone you know or a loved one on to
one of the heart shapes and place it on the Tree of Remembrance.
Along with this we have also created a Book of Remembrance,
which contains all the names of those who are buried in the Old
Catholic Cemetery, Stott Hill and Leeds Rd Catholic Cemetery.
This is one way as a parish, we remember all those who have died,
past and present.
