New Bible Study Series


Have you ever wondered about the heads surrounding the altar at St Wilfrid's? They are all figures from Genesis. This autumn there will be a series of Bible studies dealing with each head in turn. The sessions will be on Tuesdays after the 12.10pm Mass or Wednesdays at 7.30pm, in the Upper Room. Fr Daniel will give a short talk and explanation of each figure, followed by questions and discussion. The first Tuesday session will be on 10 September. (Please bring a sandwich). The first Wednesday session is on 11 September at 7.30pm. The first subject will be “Adam – Paradise Lost”.

Celebrate Yorkshire Day with Cake and a Cuppa at St Joseph's

p06f9mb0After hearing so much about the effects of loneliness and isolation in North Yorkshire, BBC Radio York began Cake and a Cuppa. The idea is to give everyone a chance to get together to have a good natter and meet old friends and make new ones. BBC Radio York wants to make the event on Yorkshire Day the biggest ever. We’ll be hosting a Cake and a Cuppa event at St Joseph’s Hall on Yorkshire Day, 1 August, from 1 – 3pm. If you can help by providing cakes (we hope we’ll need lots) please see Hilary Topham or Fr Richard. Remainders will be sold off the next Sunday for Macmillan Cancer Care, so don’t worry about having too many. If you know anyone who could do with an afternoon out, please bring them along.yorkshire-day-image1
