We have four Masses this weekend to observe the external solemnity of the Ascension:
Saturday (Vigil) - 6.00 p.m. St. Mary's, Gibbet Street, Halifax.
Sunday 11.00 a.m. Sacred Heart, Broughton Hall, Skipton (Sung Mass)
3.00 p.m. St. Joseph's, Pontefract Road, Castleford
4.00 p.m. Holy Spirit, Bath Road, Heckmondwike (Sung Mass)
The Mass at Heckmondwike is part of the church's centenary celebrations and I am very grateful that we have been invited to share in those celebrations which of course bring G.K. Chesterton, Fr. Brown and Mgr. O'Connor to mind. The photo shows the recently renovated and redecorated Holy Spirit Church. This church has one of the most beautiful statues of Our Lady I have ever seen. Refreshments after Mass.
