A Big

THANK YOU!!!

Dear All

As many of you may know I have been in hospital and then recovering from an operation for the last few weeks.

By Mid-May I hope to be back in post full-time, although taking it a little easy for a while, and I wish to say a big Thank You to you all for your prayers and help during my illness - especially a thank you to all the Clergy and others who have stood in at All Saints to keep things running.

THANK YOU  ALL - 

Fr. Mark

A NEW CHAPTER IN OUR PARISH LIVES...

 

As of the 1st. of June 2019 the two parishes of All Saints, Pontefract and of St. Giles with St Mary will be united under the Banner Title of

'THE BENEFICE OF PONTEFRACT'

In practice, certainly for the time being, this will make little difference to our everyday Parish Life, but as we grow together under this new heading there will opportunities to do some things together that are best done together, whilst still retaining the unique strengths and character of our two Parishes, which will still continue to exist individually. Together our Christian Witness to our town of Pontefract and her People will grow and flourish.
