4 FOREWORD After the June 2023 Mass for the Celebration of Priesthood, it was my pleasure to dedicate a new memorial in the North Transept of Leeds Cathedral, part of which is depicted on the cover of this Yearbook . The work symbolically brings together many aspects of what we hold dear in our diocese and in the Faith that comes to us through the Apostles: the continuity of our past, our present and our future. Most obviously, it is a piece of our history and heritage as a Catholic community in Yorkshire, incorporating as it does elements re-used from the ‘,Bentley Pulpit’,, named for John Francis Bentley, the Yorkshire-born architect of Westminster Cathedral who in 1897 designed the pulpit for the fi,rst St Anne’,s Cathedral. At the opening of the present Leeds Cathedral in 1904, the pulpit was transferred there, remaining in use until the re-ordering of the sanctuary carried out in 2006. The new monument was designed by the Cathedr al Architect, Richard Williams, and created in the workshops of Houghtons of York. It re-uses the late Victorian mosaic and some of the alabaster panels which together formed the structure of the original, within a new cabinet crafted from English oak. The pulpit was given to the previous Cathedral through the generosity of a Leeds businessman, Peter O’,Hara. The plaque now commemorates the life and ministry of Mgr Canon Peter McGuire (1932- 2015) who was the longest-serving Dean of Leeds Cathedral from 1981 until 2003. Present at its dedication were members of Mgr McGuire’,s family and friends, his brother priests and three of his successors as Dean of the Cathedral. This artwork is more than just a thing of beauty to commemorate a faithful priest, there is more to this than cold alabaster, glass and hardwood. It also tells a story at the heart of our living faith. Th e scene depicted is from St Matthew’,s Gospel.  ,This is the occasion when St Peter thrice professes his love for J esus and his belief in Him as the Son of God - and in turn Jesus asks him to feed His lambs and tend His sheep, presenting him with the ‘,Keys of the Kingdom’,. With this act, Our Lord establishes Peter as the ‘,rock’,, the strong and solid foundation on which His Church is built, as roc k-solid as the alabaster which surrounds the depiction of this momentous event. Yet just as alabaster has the appearance of hard marble, but in fact is deceptively fragile and difficult to sculpt, St Peter the ‘,rock’, was one whose resolve often failed him, culminating in his denying Christ three times: the lapse for which he atoned by sho wing his faith and love for the risen Lord, as depicted in the Bentley Pulpit. Like so many holy men and women, St Peter’,s life and ministry is a reminder that our human frailty can always be repaired and renewed with our true repentance, through God’,s infi,nite Grace and Mercy. As a fi,sherman turned ‘,Fisher of Men’,, St Peter’,s respect for the delicate balance of nature in the earth, sea and weather is not only refl,ected in our Cathedral’,s re-use and re-purposing of materials, but also reminds us of our own stewardship of God’,s creation. The continuing mission of all of us as the People of God to fulfi,l the Good Shepherd’,s message to tend and feed His lambs and sheep in welcoming, supporting, safeguarding and caring for all –, especially the most vulnerable - is as true today as it was in the early Church.

Foreword 5 The colourful mosaic ‘, opus sectile’, of painted opaque glass pieces fi,t together to comprise a whole, unifi,ed picture out of many parts. The seamless image they form is evocative of how our many richly diverse and unique homes, schools and parishes are intrinsic parts of a single diocesan community of faith, walking together ‘,synodally’, along the same path as the Apostles, and like them, called and sent forth to spread Christ’,s love and to model it in heart, mind and action through our own lives. Remembering our loved ones in prayer, with keepsakes and photographs, or with a permanent memorial, is an age-old human need which is still very much part of our present way of life. In remembering the donors and the dedication, we call to mind the service of all the clergy and devotion of all the lay faithful of our Diocese, which continues throughout the ages and in generations yet to come. Memorials are not just things of the past, our Catholic faith is based on a living memorial, as we commemorate Our Lord’,s saving Passion in the Eucharist. By continuing to do this in memory of His death and resurrection, Our Lord Jesus Christ is truly present with us now in His Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, which is our future hope for eternal life with Him. 9 Marcus Stock Bishop of Leeds PATRONS OF THE DIOCESE OF LEEDS Our Lady of Unfailing Help St Wilfrid

DIOCESE 18 HISTORY OF THE DIOCESE OF LEEDS At the beginning of the nineteenth century the Catholic Church in England and Wales was presided over by four Vicars Apostolic, a system of ecclesiastical governance that had originally been established in the seventeenth century. In 1840 the number of Vicariates or Districts was increased to eight and at this point the Yorkshire District came into being. However, given that the number of English Catholics increased ten-fold between 1750 and 1850 the need for further developments in the Church ’, s administrative structure w as clear. In September 1850, therefore, the Holy See announced the Restoration of the English and Welsh Hierarchy. Pope Pius IX’,s apostolic letter Universalis Ecclesiae created thirteen new dioceses. The Yorkshire District became the Diocese of Beverley and Dr John Briggs, formerly Vicar Apostolic of the Yorkshire District, became the fi,rst Bishop of Beverley. After Bishop Briggs’,s death in 1861 he was succeeded by Bishop Robert Cornthw aite. Shortly after his consecration Cornthwaite informed the Holy See that in his opinion the Beverley diocese wa s too large and should be sub-divided in light of the rapid expansion in the Catholic population and the growing number of clergy and parishes in Yorkshire. It was to remain a subject of discussion between the Bishop and Rome for more than fi,fteen years until, in December 1878, Pope Leo XIII decreed that Beverley should be divided in two: the North and East Ridings to form the new Diocese of Middlesbrough and the Diocese of Leeds to comprise the whole of the West Riding. In 1878 the Catholic population of the Diocese of Leeds was 98,808 and there were eighty priests serving seventy-four churches or chapels. At the centenary of the Diocese in 1978 the population had increased to more than 266,000 while the number of clergy stood at more than 300 and there were 261 places of worship. For some years past it had been apparent that this growth necessitated a further restructuring of the Church in Yorkshire. Thus in May 1980 fi,fty parishes in South Yorkshire were ceded to the new Diocese of Hallam, centred on Sheffield. In 1982 the two York parishes south of the River Ouse were ceded to the Diocese of Middlesbrough to unite the City of York under one bishop. In 1988 the parish of Dunsop Bridge was transferred to the Diocese of Salford and in 2004 the parish of Howden was transferred from Middlesbrough to the Leeds diocese. In 2022 the provision of pastoral care for the parish of the Sacred Heart and St William at Uppermill in Greater Manchester was transferred to the Diocese of Salford. Today the Diocese of Leeds comprises the whole of West Yorkshire (with the exception of the parish of Todmorden) together with parishes in the East Riding, North Yorkshire, Greater Manchester and Lancashire. The Patronal Feasts of the Diocese of Leeds are those of Our Lady of Unfailing Help on 27th June and St Wilfrid on 12th October. COAT OF ARMS A shield is surmounted by a bishop’, s mitre. Behind the shield is positioned a crozier, symbol of the pastoral jurisdiction of a bishop and a processional cross, recalling that the bishop and diocese must look to and always follow the cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ. The shield incorporates: Silver fl,eur-de-lys on a blue background for Our Lady of Perpetual Succour (Our Lady of Unfailing Help), Patroness of the Diocese of Leeds A gold crozier for St Wilfrid, Patron of the Diocese Small green shield with silver rose for the ‘,County of Broad Acres’, and ‘,Yorkshire White Rose’,

DIOCESE 21 REVIEW OF THE YEAR 2022-23 A summary of events in the Diocese of Leeds in the year from October 2022. Compiled by Robert F innigan KSS, Diocesan Arch i vist. Diocesan photography by P atrick Sice. For up-to-date information on news and events during 2024 visit: www.dioceseofl,eeds.org.uk/news/ Death of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI On learning of the death of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI on 31 December 2022, Bishop Marcus said, ‘,It is with great sadness that we learned today of the death of our beloved Pope Emeritus, Benedict XVI. We recall with great fondness ho w Benedict won the hearts and minds of so many of the people of our country during his visit to England in September 2010. His ministry and leadership were characterised by a gentleness and serenity that spr ang from an intense personal relationship with Our Lord Jesus Christ. Benedict’,s teaching as the Successor of St Peter and his theological writings have gi ven the Church a profound legac y that will be appreciated ever more deeply both now and in years to come. May the humble and selfl,ess soul of Benedict XVI, wh o ministered as chief Shepherd of God’,s Church, be welcomed into heaven by the Lord w hom he love d and serv ed so faithfully on earth.’, Th e Bishop celebr ated a Solemn Requiem Mass for the repose of the soul of the late Pope at the Cathedral on Tuesday 24 January 2023. Coronation of King Charles III On Friday evening 5 May 2023, the eve of the Coronation in Westminster Abbey, many parishes celebrated a Mass for the intentions of the King, and on Sunday 7 May Bishop Marcus celebrated a Mass of Thanksgiving at Leeds Cathedral to mark the King’,s coronation. Visit of HE Cardinal Arthur Roche On the evening of Saturday 12 November Cardinal Roche returned to his home diocese to celebrate Mass at St Joseph’,s Church, Batley Carr, where he wa s baptised and confi,rmed and where, in July 1975, he was ordained to the priesthood. At the end of Mass, children from the Cardinal’,s old school, St Joseph’,s Catholic Primary Academy in Batley Carr, presented him with gifts including some ‘,Yorkshire Tea’,. Just before he gave the Blessing, he made a presentation of his own to the parish: the red cardinal’,s biretta given to him by P ope Francis at the Consistory in St Peter’,s, Rome on 27 August. Cardinal Roche said he was leaving the biretta in his home parish, ‘,…,as a token of my lo ve and esteem –, and when you see it, please say a prayer for me’,. Two days later, on the evening of Monday 14 November, a large congregation gathered in Leeds Cathedral, headed by the Lord Lieutenant of West Yorkshire, Mr Ed Anderson, and the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress of Leeds, Cllr Robert Gettings and Cllr Lesley Gettings.

DIOCESE Review of the Year 22 Westminster, and clergy from the Diocese of Leeds. The Bishops were in Leeds for the start of their Autumn Plenary Assembly, held at Hinsley Hall. At the beginning of the Mass, Bishop Marcus had words of welcome for the concelebrants and the congregation, and especially for Cardinal Roche. The Bishop said how proud the people of the Diocese were that someone born, raised and ordained in the Diocese of Leeds had been honoured by P ope Francis through his appointment to the College of Cardinals. Before the Final Blessing, Cardinal Roche addressed the bishops, priests, and congregation, looking back at his years as a priest and then Bishop of Leeds and expressing the gratitude he felt at the support he had been given by priests and people during those times. He also felt a deep sense of history as he is only the third Yorkshireman to be made a Cardinal –, the others being St John Fisher, born at Beverley in 1469, and Arthur Hinsley, from Carlton near Selby, who became Archbishop of Westminster in the 1930s. After Mass Cardinal Roche spent time meeting and greeting members of the congregation, renewing many old acquaintances with people from across the Diocese. Episcopal Ordination of Bishop Philip Moger On Monday 28 November 2022 it wa s announced that Pope Francis had appointed Mgr Philip Moger as an Auxiliary Bishop for the Archdiocese of Southwark. Ordained for the Leeds Diocese in 1982, Mgr Moger was formerly Dean of Leeds Cathedral and served as Rector of the National Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham from 2020 until his appointment to Southwark. His episcopal ordination took place at St George’,s Cathedral, Southwark on Tuesday 21 February and was conducted by the Archbishop of Southwark, the Most Rev John Wi lson. Also present for the occasion was Cardinal Roche. The ceremony resulted in a unique situation for the Diocese of Leeds as three priests, originally ordained for the diocese are now a Cardinal, an Archbishop, and a Bishop –, Cardinal Roche, Archbishop Wilson, and Bishop Moger. Dedication of Cathedral Memorial to Mgr Peter McGuire Prot Ap At the end of the Mass for the Celebration of Priesthood, held at the Cathedral on Friday 16 June, Bishop Marcus dedicated a new memorial in the North Transept that recalls the life and ministry of Mgr Canon Peter McGuire (1932 –, 2015) who was Dean of Leeds Cathedral from 1981 until 2003. In that same year he was appointed a Protonotary Apostolic by Pope St John Paul II. To date Mgr McGuire is the longest serving Dean of the Cathedral. The memorial was designed by the Cathedr al Architect, Richard Williams, and incorporates marble and mosaic elements from the pulpit designed for the fi,rst St Anne’,s Cathedral in 1897 by J ohn Francis Bentley, the Yorkshire-born architect of Westminster Cathedral. The pulpit was transferred to the present Cathedral ready for the opening in 1904 and remained in use until the re-ordering of the sanctuary carried out in 2006. The Bishop dedicated the memorial in the presence of members of Mgr McGuire’,s family, and a number of his close personal friends. Bishop Marcus was accompanied for the dedication by Mgr McGuire’, s successors as Dean of the Cathedral, Canon Michael McCreadie (Dean from 2003 to 2008), Bishop Philip Moger (Dean from 2008-2019) and Canon Matthew Habron (Dean since 2019).

DIOCESE Review of the Year 23 Ordinations to the Priesthood Fr Mar c Pitson was ordained to the Sacred Priesthood at Leeds Cathedral on Saturday 28 January by Bishop Mar cus. Fr Mar c is a former student of Leeds Trinity University and the Venerable English College in Rome. Following his ordination to the Diaconate in 2022 he assisted in the parish of St John Mary Vianney, in Leeds, and it was here that he said his First Mass, in the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church , Moortown, Leeds on Sunday 29 January. Fr Mar c was later appointed as Assistant Priest in the parish of Our Lady of Kirkstall, Leeds. On Saturday 1 July at the Cathedral the Bishop ordained Paul Moores to the Sacred Priesthood. Fr Paul studied for the priesthood in Rome, initially at the Venerable English College and then at the Pontifi,cal Beda College. The following day, Sunday 2 July, Fr P aul returned to his home parish of the Sacred Heart and St William at Uppermill, to celebrate his First Mass. Later in the year he joined the staff of the Cathedral Church of St Anne in Leeds as Assistant Priest. New Chapter Canons Appointed In early 2023 Bishop Marcus announced that he had appointed Honorary Canon Matthew Habron, and Fr Dennis Cassid y as members of the Cathedral Chapter. Their appointments were made to fi,ll the vacancies which arose from the retirement of Canon John Nunan in 2022 and the episcopal ordination of former Canon Philip Moger in February 2023, when he became Auxiliary Bishop in the Archdiocese of Southwark. Canon Habron has been Dean of the Cathedral and Parish Priest of Mother of Unfailing Help, Leeds since 2019 and Canon Cassidy has been Parish Priest of St John Vianney, Leeds since 2020. Th e Mass of Installation to the Leeds Cathedral Chapter on Wednesday 9 August, the Feast of St Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, Co-Patroness of Europe, was witnessed by a large congregation in the Cathedral, including family members, friends, and parishioners. In July the Bishop announced that he had appointed Fr Ger ard Kearney, Fr Martin K elly, and Fr Christopher Willis as members of the Cathedral Chapter. These appointments were to fi,ll the vacancies resulting from the retirement from office at the end of August 2023, of Canons Kevin Firth, Lawrie Hulme, and Michael Mahady. Bishop Marcus thanked the new Canons for agreeing to serve the Cathedral in this way and to act as members of the diocesan College of Consultors. Their Installation to the Chapter took place at the Cathedral on Tuesday 31 October. Appointment of New Diocesan Trustees As a result of recent retirements from office, in 2023 the Bishop made a number of appointments to bring the full membership of the Diocesan Board of Trustees up to its compliment of twelve, and to secure the range of professional skills and experience needed. The existing membership comprised Bishop Marcus, Mgr Paul Fisher VG, Mgr Andrew Summersgill VG, Mr Mark Gargan and Mr Patrick McDermott.

DIOCESE Review of the Year 24 Wain, and Mr Pe ter Wilson. At the same time, the Bishop appointed Fr Eamonn Hegarty, Pa rish Priest of Batley and Birstall, as a Diocesan Trustee. The newly constituted Board met for the fi,rst time at the beginning of September 2023. New Parishes Established in Leeds and Kirklees After a period of consultation with the parishioners of St Gianna Beretta Molla, Leeds and Christ the King, Leeds, and in consultation with the Council of Priests, Bishop Marcus canonically amalgamated the two parishes to form the new Parish of Christ the King and Holy Family. This took effect from 2 April 2023, Palm Sunday. The parish church of the new parish is Christ the King, at Br amley and the church of Holy F amily in Armley will be a chapel-of-ease. The Parish Priest, Fr Neil Byrne resides in the presb ytery at Christ the King. The former presbytery at Holy Family is now leased by St Monica’, s Housing Trust, which provides accommodation for destitute people seeking asylum in the UK. The new parish also includes two primary schools –, Christ the King in Bramley and Holy Family in Armley. The modern history of the Church in West Leeds begins in 1864 when a Mass Centre was established at New Wortley, served from St Anne’,s Cathedral. A resident priest was appointed in 1868 and a school- chapel, dedicated to the Holy Family, opened in 1872. The present church in Green Lane dates from 1895 and is now the only nineteenth century Catholic church in the city of Leeds that is still in use. In 1928 the Bramley and Stanningley areas became a separate parish, with the opening of the church of Christ the King. In 1970 the parish of Holy Spirit at Stanningley w as created. In 2011 the parish church w as closed, and the area was reincorporated into Christ the King parish. St Wilfrid’,s parish at Farnley was established by Bishop Dwy er in 1960. One of the former parish priests is Cardinal Arthur Roche, who served at St Wilfrid’,s from 1989-91. In 2014 the parishes of Holy Family and St Wilfrid came together to form the parish of St Gianna Beretta Molla. Since 2018 St Wilfrid’,s Church has serv ed as the home of the Syro-Malabar Chaplaincy in the Diocese of Leeds. Following a decree issued by Bishop Mar cus, on the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul, Thursday 29 June, the parishes of St Mary, Batley, and St Patrick, Birstall were formally amalgamated to create a new parish dedicated to St Mary and St Patrick, with Fr Eamonn Hegarty as P arish Priest, wh o resides at St Mary’,s Presbytery. The parish includes the Grade II Listed Church of St Mary in Batley, built in 1870 and St Patrick’,s, Birstall, which opened exactly 100 years later in 1970. There are also Catholic primary schools in both towns (St Mary’,s in Batley and St Patrick’,s in Birstall) which are now academies and part of the Blessed Peter Snow Catholic Academy Trust. The fi,rst priest came to Batley in 1853. Land for a new church w as purchased in 1861 and the building was completed in December 1870. The architect was John Kelly of Leeds, who also designed Holy Family Church in Leeds. Birstall w as a Mass centre from 1876. The fi,rst parish priest was appointed in 1905 and the foundation stone of a new church, school and presbytery building was laid in May 1908. The 1908 building continued in use until 1970, when it was replaced by the present church and the old c hurch w as retained as the parish hall. Designation of Catholic Care as Caritas Leeds In a Pastoral Letter issued at the end of July Bishop Marcus announced that from August 2023 Catholic Care would be designated as Caritas Leeds, the latest development in the organisation’,s history which can be traced back 160 years to 1863.

DIOCESE Review of the Year 25 In his Pastoral Letter the Bishop explained the reasons for the change: “,When ‘,Caritas Leeds’, was launched in 2017, it was formed following a collegiate decision taken by the Bishops of England and Wales to develop in each diocese a practical response to the apostolic mandate given by P ope Benedict XVI in Intima Ecclesiae Natura, ‘,On the Service of Charity’,. This Apostolic Letter stated that: “,Wherever necessary, due to the number and variety of initiatives, the diocesan Bishop is to establish in the Church entrusted to his care, an Office to direct and coordinate the service of charity in his name”,. In this diocese, we decided to establish initially an umbrella ‘,forum’,, convened by a Co-ordinator under the direction of the Diocesan Bishop. Th e purpose of this diocesan forum was to give a co-ordinated expression to the ministry of c harity which was being exercised already by man y groups, associations and organisations providing ch aritable outreac h to the poor and those in need in the diocese. The past six years have seen some signifi,cant developments of that vision and as a ‘,forum’, Caritas Leeds has helped many people in the diocese to appreciate the remarkable work that has been and is being done by the Chur ch in addressing areas of need. When it was launched, I stated that we would “,…,need to refi,ne how Caritas Leeds will operate most effectively within the context of our diocese, this will take time.”, I believe that now the time is right for me to designate Catholic Care as the corporate agency, ‘,Caritas Leeds’,, which will provide in my name the ongoing direction and coordination of the service of c harity in this diocese. The charitable objects of Catholic Care are: To promote within the Catholic Diocese of Leeds the relief of poverty and distress among children and all those who through economic or family circumstances or physical or mental affliction are in need of such relief and, to promote and organise co-operation among Catholics and others in the achievement of the above. These objects and Catholic Care’,s incorporated status make it well placed to undertake its canonical responsibilities as the Bishop’,s agent in exercising his proper pastoral solicitude for the service of charity in the particular Church entrusted to him. As an agency with many years of experience and the benefi,t of professionally qualifi,ed staff, Catholic Care is in a strong position to undertake these responsibilities as Caritas Leeds. I wish to express my sincere thanks to Rev Dr J oseph Cortis for all the work he has done as the founding Co- ordinator for Caritas Leeds. The role of the Co-ordinator will now be incorporated into the work of Catholic Care by its Director , Mrs Carol Hill.”, Celebrating Our Churches The Diocese has a rich architectural heritage, dating back to the building of St Joseph’,s Church , Pontefract in 1806. In December 2022 Historic England announced that it was upgrading the listing of St Edward the Confessor Church, Clifford. Until now it had been a Grade II Listed Building, but its architecture and heritage saw it raised to Grade II*. The upgrade makes St Edward’,s, built in 1848, eligible for government grants that are only available for Grade I or Grade II* buildings. St Robert’,s, Harrogate is a Grade II Listed Building which celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2023. It was opened by Cardinal Manning on 5 J une 1873. At the invitation of Parish Priest, Fr Simon Bradbury, Bishop Marcus visited the parish to lead a Mass of Thanksgiving to mark this milestone in its history. During the year several diocesan churches benefi,tted from grants awarded to them by various public and charitable bodies. In July 2023 it was announced that the Cathedral had been awarded a grant of £,99,944 from the National Lottery Heritage Fund. The grant will help mark the centenary of the Cathedral’,s consecration in 2024, by enabling stonework repairs to the entrance from St Anne’,s Street, the development of resources for school visits and guided St Edward`s Church, Clifford

DIOCESE Review of the Year 26 tours, training opportunities for volunteer stewards and guides, an in-depth feasibility study of how to improve access and toilet facilities at the Cathedr al, as well as several other heritage projects that will be completed during 2023-24 Cathedral Dean, Canon Matthew Habron, expressed his thanks for the support of National Lottery players and said: ‘,The award of this grant from the Heritage Fund will enable Leeds Cathedral to continue to welcome those who come here to worship or to visit this historic building in the heart of Leeds, deepening their appreciation of its heritage –, and of those past and present of all ages and backgrounds who make up that living heritage. I am very grateful to all who have made the award of this grant possible, and I look forward to welcoming many more people from across the City of Leeds, and far beyond, to experience the beauty and heritage of this unique Cathedral Church . ’, The Yorkshire Historic Churches Trust awarded over £,26,000 for repair works, which was shared between St Joseph’,s, and Our Lady of Lourdes and St William’,s churches in Bradford, St Edward’,s, Clifford, Our Lady of Lourdes, Leeds, and St Wilfrid’,s, Ripon. A project to refurbish the facilities and improve access at the Community Room within the Chur ch of the Holy Rosary at Chapeltown in Leeds received £,28,050 from the Community Improvement Grants scheme of the Benefact Trust. This funding was added to the £,165,000 already raised by the Holy Rosary congregation towards the cost of the project. World Youth Day 2023 The event in Lisbon in the fi,rst week of August was fi,lled with laughter, music, and joy as well as lots of challenges and sobering moments of refl,ection. Whenever difficulties were encountered the pilgrims were reminded by one of Franciscan Sisters of the Renewal to ‘,Offer it up to the Lord’, –, and they did! A group of thirty young people from the Diocese travelled to the Portuguese capital, led by Ry an Wilkinson and Jessica Wilkinson from the Diocesan Youth Office, while Fr Mar c Homsey acted as the pilgrims’, chaplain. The group celebrated with young people from all over the globe, and they were joined in one mission: Rise Up! Just as Mary arose with haste to share her news with Elizabeth, they too were called to rise up and share the Joy of the Gospel. At the centre of WYD 2023 was, of course, Jesus Christ. From the Masses shared between individual diocesan groups to the incredible experience of Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament with 1.5 million people at Parque Tejo, the week was rooted in thanksgiving for the gift of our faith and being members of the global Church. One of the Leeds pilgrims at WYD, said ‘,It showed me the strength of faith and it made me realise how many people love J esus just like me.’, The unity and fellowship that was so present throughout the Pilgrimage is something that has travelled back home and, during a recent reunion, is still a source of great joy in the lives of those who travelled to Lisbon. They remember the words Pope Francis shared with them at the Opening Ceremony ‘,Don’,t be afraid, have cour age, go forward knowing that we are loved…, God Loves Us!’, Sixteenth Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod, October 2023 At the end of September Bishop Marcus travelled to Rome for the opening of the XVI Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops on 4 October. Together with the Archbishop of Southwark, the Most Reverend John Wilson, he was representing the Catholic Bishops of England Leeds in Lisbon - WYD 2023

DIOCESE Review of the Year 27 and Wales. To prepare pr ayerfully for the Synod, the members of the General Assembly took part in an ecumenical vigil of prayer on the evening of 30 September, followed by a three-da y spiritual retreat. The Synod took place at the Vatican from 4 –, 29 October. In a Pastoral Letter issued on 15 September the Bishop said that the Synod was “,an important moment in the life of the Universal Church. Put simply, synodality is the whole People of God ‘,walking together’, in faith under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Father Pope Francis hopes that this synodal process will help the Church to discern more deeply ho w, in its communion, participation and mission, the whole People of God can be more effective in our witness to Christ in today’,s world.”, Bishop Marcus noted that there had been much speculation and debate in the media about the Synod, which had “,generated both a variety of hopes and an array of fears. ”, In that context it was, he said, paramount that the whole Church joins in pr ayer for the guidance of the Holy Spirit ove r the synodal process. He concluded by sa ying that “,in the coming weeks, I hope that you too will pray for our Holy F ather Pope Francis, for me your bishop, and for all the bishops, religious and lay faithful taking part in the Synodal Assembly in Rome.”, Walsingham Pilgrimage 2023 On Saturday 30 September, the day Bishop Marcus and the other Synod participants gathered in Rome, Mgr Andrew Summersgill VG led the annual Diocesan Pilgrimage to the National Shrine and Basilica of Our Lady at Walsingham. Some 250 pilgrims from parishes, schools and colleges across the diocese journeyed to North Norfolk for mid-day Mass, the afternoon Procession along the Pilgrim Way into Walsingham village and Evening Prayer and Benediction in the Priory Grounds. The 2023 Pilgrimage also marked the 75th anniversary of a great National Pilgrimage to the ancient Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham. It was a Pilgrimage of Prayer and Penance for Peace and 400 pilgrims carried fourteen crosses from different points across England, the groups averaging 212 miles each. They carried their crosses throughout the country, accepting the hospitality and shelter of parishes on their way, erecting their crosses inside the parish churches on their overnight stops. They arrived in Walsingham on 15 July 1948, the eve of the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. The crosses were carried to the Slipper Chapel. After Mass the crosses were carried along the Holy Mile to the ruins of the ancient Walsingham Priory. The crosses now stand in the grounds of the National Shrine where they form an outdoor Stations of the Cross. The cross which was carried from the steps of Leeds Cathedral to Walsingham, via South Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, and North Norfolk (a journey of 217 miles) forms the Thirteenth Station.

DIOCESE Diocese of Leeds 30 COAT OF ARMS THE RIGHT REVEREND MARCUS STOCK Tenth Bishop of Leeds MOTTO Desiderio desideravi (“,I have desired with desire to be with you”,) Gospel of St Luke 22:15. This was the Gospel passage quoted on the day of Bishop Marcus’, Ordination to the Diaconate in Rome by Cardinal Basil Hume, w ho said, “,Carry these words not only throughout your diaconate but into your priesthood, then, you will discover that peace, that joy, in the service of the servants of the Lord.”, GALERO Green with twelve tassels for a diocesan bishop PROCESSIONAL CROSS Displaye d behind the shield, a processional cross with the ends of the arms botoné,e and with fi,ve red stones, representing the fi,ve wounds of Christ. THE SHIELD In the ‘,chief’, of the shield is the winged lion, symbol of St Mark (Latin: Marcus, Feast Day 25th April), Evangelist and Martyr, the Patron Saint of Bishop Marcus. The inscription on the open pages of the Gospel Book held by the lion reads: “,P ax tibi Marce, evangelista mea”,, (“,Peace to yo u Marcus, my ev angelist”,). The background colour is red, the colour of the blood which Christ sacrifi,ced on the Cross and the iconographic colour of martyrdom. It reminds us that as baptised Christians we are called to witness to Christ and to be ready to sacrifi,ce our lives for Christ. The fl,eur-de-lis on either side symbolise the two arms of the Blessed Virgin Mary, as Our Lady of Unfailing Help (under whose patronage, together with St Wilfrid, the Diocese of Leeds is placed), spreading the protecting mantle of her cloak around those who seek to follow Christ. The fl,eur-de- lis are coloured white/silver, the iconographic colour for the purity, holiness and simplicity of our baptismal calling and our life of faith in the imitation of Mary, the Mother of God. Th e bac kground of the ‘,base’, of the shield is gold, the iconographic colour for Christ and the eternal uncreated light of God. Central within the base is the cross of St Chad. This is a reference to Bishop Marcus’, ministry as a deacon and priest of the Archdiocese of Birmingham. The cross is the dominant symbol of the shield to remind us that Christ must be at the centre of our live s and that we should strive to live in the light and wisdom of God’,s Spirit. The cross is coloured blue, the iconographic colour for God’,s eternal kingdom, it is this kingdom alone which we must serve by follo wing and carrying the cross of Christ. In the centre of the cross is a scallop shell, the symbol of the pilgrim and a reference to Bishop Marcus’, training for the priesthood at the Venerable English College in Rome, which was founded as a hospice for pilgrims. The shell is coloured white/silver, the iconographic colour which also symbolises the life of the resurrection. The shell symbolises the pilgrimage of faith that each baptised person must make in the hope of the resurrection of the dead. Placed in the centre of the cross, it recalls the account of the Road to Emmaus (Luke 24:13-35), and reminds us that this pilgrimage is made with and in Christ. The heraldic design conforms to the requirements of the Instruction Ut sive sollicite, ‘,On the dress, titles, and coats-of-arms of Cardinals, Bishops, and lesser Prelates’,, issued by the Secretariat of State on 31st March 1969.

DIOCESE Diocese of Leeds 35 HISTORY OF LEEDS CATHEDRAL The Cathedral Church of Saint Anne In 1904, as the present Cathedral was nearing completion the then Administrator, Canon Charles Croskell, explained that the aim had been ‘,to build a cathedral which would be a source of daily pride to the whole diocese.’, Today, Leeds Cathedral is widely recognised as one of the outstanding Catholic cathedrals of England and Wales, and more generally one of the country’,s fi,nest early twentieth century churches. It is recognised by English Heritage as a Grade II* Listed Building in view of its historic interest and architectural merit. The credit for this is due to the second Bishop of Leeds, Bishop Gordon, who recognised the skills of the architect JH Eastwood and his partner SK Greenslade. Eastwood and Greenslade produced a design in the Arts and Crafts style, combined with an unusual interior plan to take account of the Cathedral’,s compact site, which impressed architectural commentators in 1904 and continues to do so over a hundred years later. While the present Cathedral dates from 1904, its origins can be traced back to the late eighteenth century. In 1786 the fi,rst post-Reformation Catholic chapel was established in Leeds by the Dominicans. In 1794 this was replaced by St Mary’, s, Lady Lane. In the following decades the town’,s Catholic population grew signifi,cantly and eventually St Mary’,s became too small to meet their needs and in 1838 it was in turn replaced by a new c hurch , dedicated to St Anne. Forty years later this church became the Cathedral for the new Diocese of Leeds when it was established in 1878. In 1899 Leeds Corporation imposed a compulsory purchase order on the original St Anne’,s Cathedral when it decided to realign the junction of the Headrow and Park Row in the centre of the town. The land for the present Cathedral was provided by the Corpor ation in part compensation for the value of the previous site. Work on the present building began in 1901 and the foundation stone was laid in July 1902. The official opening took place on 16th June 1904, but it was not until 1924 that the Cathedral was consecrated, by Bishop Cowgill. During the Second Vatican Council Bishop Dwyer appointed the architects Weightman and Bullen to carry out the reordering of the interior to take account of the liturgical reforms then emerging from the Council and this scheme was completed in December 1963. Th e external fabric of the building was cleaned and restored in 1987 and the roof was renewed in 1991. Wheeler Hall in St Anne’,s Street, and named after the seventh Bishop of Leeds, William Gordon Wheeler, was completed in 2003 and subsequently won a Leeds Award for Architecture. The centenary of Leeds Cathedral was celebrated in the summer of 2004. The Cathedral closed at the end of July in the following year when work began on an extensive programme of internal works, involving the reordering of the sanctuary and the restoration and refurbishment of the interior as a whole. The scheme was commissioned by Bishop Arthur Roche and designed by Ric hard Williams, of Buttress, Fuller, Alsop, Williams. The works lasted for over a year and the Cathedral was formally reopened on 13th November 2006. In the summer of 2007, with a grant from English Heritage, the Pugin Altar and Reredos in the Lady Chapel were fully restored. In May 2010, the restored Cathedral organ wa s dedicated. The instrument was originally built by Norman and Beard in 1904 and restored and augmented by Klais of Bonn, o ver a period of two years starting in 2008. The centenary of the Consecration of the Cathedral will be celebrated in July 2024. www.dioceseofl,eeds.org.uk/cathedral

DIOCESE Diocese of Leeds 41 THE LEEDS CATHOLIC CEMETERY (KILLINGBECK) Cemetery and Bereavement Services Manager: Mr Andrew Storr Tel: 0113 264 5247 Email: killingbeck@dioceseofl,eeds.org.uk Killingbeck Cemetery, York Road, Leeds LS14 6AB The Leeds Catholic Cemetery, or Killingbeck Cemetery as it is more commonly known, opened in 1895 as a replacement for the small burial ground attached to the old St Patrick’,s chapel on York Road. The need for a new and much larger Catholic cemetery to serve all the Leeds parishes had long been apparent, given the growth of the city’,s Catholic population during the 19th century. Th e fi,rst burials at the new cemetery took place in March 1895 and the Bishop of Leeds, the Rt Rev William Gordon, performed the official opening in July of that year. Since 1895, over 50,000 burials have taken place at Killingbec k Cemetery and there can be few Catholic families in Leeds that do not have some connection with the cemetery and its history. When Bishop Gordon died 7 June 1911 he was buried at Killingbeck. As with his successor Bishop Cowgill, who died 12 May 1936 and numerous priests of the diocese both before and since, he was laid to rest in sight of the Cemetery Chapel, which was built in 1902-03. At various times during the past 100 years the chapel acted as a place of worship for the growing Catholic community in East Leeds, particularly before the building of new churches at Cross Gates and Seacroft. In 1995 Bishop Konstant celebrated Mass in the chapel to mark the centenary of the opening of the cemetery. By 1995, the cemetery’,s future appeared rather uncertain. It was by then almost full and it was no longer possible to reserve a burial plot, as what little space remained had to be available for immediate needs. Closure, therefore, seemed likely until the adjacent site of the former Killingbeck Hospital was earmarked for redevelopment. In approving planning consent for the new development, the Local Authority insisted that some of the land at the former hospital was gifted to the Diocese for an extension of the Cemetery. The transfer of land took place in 2005 and opened in September 2009. This has created the space for over 1,000 new graves and new plots for cremated remains.

This ministry is rooted in God’,s Word, the Sacramental life of the Church gathered at the Altar, and lived out in the virtue of Charity. Th e Second Vatican Council restored the permanent diaconate as an important part of its ove r all work of renewing the Catholic Church and equipping it to proclaim the Gospel vigorously to the modern world. Deacons are visible witnesses within the Church of her o wn calling to be a servant in the world. WHAT IS A DEACON? From the apostolic age, the Catholic Church has held the holy order of the Diaconate in great honour. The deacon is ‘,a living icon of Christ the servant within the Church’,. At diaconal ordination, the bishop prays to God the Father that the new deacon may be ‘,the image of your Son who did not come to be served but to serve’,. We are undoubtedly still learning about the diaconate as a specifi,c ministry and we are still clarifying the profi,le of the deacon. However, it is important for us to recognise that the diaconate is not an abridged or substitute form of the priesthood. On the contrary, it is a distinct Order in its own right. The more we live as a serv ant-Church, the more likely we are to understand the diaconate and to discern diaconal vocations. One of the roles of the Deacon is to dismiss the community at the end of the Liturgy and charge them to put into practice what they have just celebr ated. The deacon himself has a particular responsibility to practise what he preaches and celebrates. He must give a lead in exer cising charity and show that service of the poor, however manifested, is the logical consequence of service of the altar. Such work is indeed the ministry most characteristic of the deacon. Diaconal ministry fundamentally involves reaching out from the liturgical heart of parish life to those who fi,nd themselves marginalised by po verty or sickness, co-ordinating are estranged by po verty or sickness, rallying the resources of the parish to meet their needs and, reciprocally, bringing the needs and cares of the world into the heart of the Church ’, s w orship and fellowship. Although their ow n personal and pastoral circumstances may vary widely, all deacons should nevertheless exercise the threefold ministry of word, altar and charity as fully as possible, nourished by pr ayer and above all by lo ve of the Euc harist. Aspirants and candidates for the diaconate play a decisive role in their o wn formation: ‘,all formation ... is ultimately a self-formation’,. They need to be generous in the time they give to their studies and preparation. The generosity and commitment that an aspirant or a candidate shows will usually indicate the type of deacon he will be in the future. In the initial stages of enquiry, the expectations of the formation programme will be clearly explained to the applicant as well as the ministry of the diaconate itself. Formation: The Propaedeutic Period (as ‘,Aspirants’,) is not primarily a time of study, but rather one of prayerful refl,ection on the call of God and the assessment of the aspirant’,s suitability to advance to being formally accepted as a candidate for diaconal ordination. During this period the aspirants will be introduced to a deeper knowledge of theology, of prayer and spirituality and of the ministry of deacons and they will be led to a more attentive discernment of their call.

2024 edition of the Leeds Diocese Yearbook

DIOCESE Diocese of Leeds 44 After the Propaedeutic Period the more formal training and preparation (as ‘,Candidates’,) begins and will last for at least three years. Attention will be given to four dimensions of formation: the human dimension, the spiritual dimension, the intellectual dimension and the pastoral dimension. When he is ordained, the deacon needs to be an effective minister of w ord, altar and charity, having both the knowledge and skills to undertake his ministry to the best of his ability. It is also expected that candidates for the diaconate should be predisposed to continuing their formation after ordination. WHAT ARE THE ROLES OF THE PERMANENT DEACON TO D AY? ‘,There is a variety of gifts but always the same Spirit, there are all sorts of service to be done, but always to the same Lord.’, (1 Cor: 12: 4-5) Ministry of the Word - ‘,being a sign of Christ, the Word of God’, To proclaim the Gospel at Mass and to preac h the Word of God. To in volve himself in diocesan and parish programmes of Catechesis and Evangelisation. To prepare the faithful for the reception of the sacr aments and then attend to their pastoral care after they have recei ved them. To witness to Christ in their secular profession or occupation and engage with the missionary nature of the Church at home and abroad.

DIOCESE Diocese of Leeds 47 CARITAS LEEDS From August 2023, Bishop Marcus designated Catholic Care as Caritas Leeds Tel: 0113 388 5400 Email: info@catholic-care.org.uk www.catholic-care.org.uk ‘,The Church ’, s deepest nature is expressed in her three-fold ministry: of proclaiming the w ord of God (kerygma-martyria), celebrating the sacraments (leitourgia) and exercising the ministry of charity (diakonia). These duties pre-suppose each other and are inseparable’, (Deus Caritas Est, 25). With regards to the diakonia of Charity, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI pointed out that ‘,in conformity with the Episcopal structure of the Church, the Bishops, as successors of the Apostles, are charged with primary responsibility for carrying out in the particular Churches the service of Charity’, (No 32). As the Code of Canon Law, in the canons on the ministry of the Bishop, does not expressly mention charity as a specifi,c sector of episcopal activity, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI in his Moto Proprio ‘,On the Service of Charity’, (2012) provides ‘,an organic legislative fr amework for the better overall ordering of the various organised ecclesial forms of service of charity, which are clearly related to the diaconal nature of the Church and the Episcopal ministry’,. The various articles which emerge from this Moto Proprio culminates in the requirement by eac h Diocesan Bishop to set up a Caritas organisation to meet the specifi,c needs of his diocese. Since 2012 a number of diocesan Caritas have been set up in England and Wales using different models of structure and operation. Our Diocesan Caritas was formally launched in September 2017 and its mission is to: ‘,celebrate, encourage and enhance the work that is already taking place across our diocese but to adopt a more focused, coordinated and searching approach to what we do in terms of our charitable and social action activities’,. Caritas Leeds also provides a strong and coherent voice on important social issues, identify and respond to areas of need within the diocese and encourage, promote and facilitate social action. Its Motto is: ‘,Faith through Loving Service’,. Caritas Leeds has a designated section on the Diocesan website www.dioceseofl,eeds.org.uk/ caritas/. It offers the following: •, Introductory explanation about the aims of Caritas Leeds •, A drop-down tab labelled Catholic Social Teaching offers full explanation of a number of core principles, linking each to scripture readings, Church documents, local and national groups, prayer, Saint with that particular charism and a refl,ective section. •, The last section in this resource is Call to Action which explains the necessary steps to help move from the stage of ideas into positi ve and collabor ative action. •, The tab Catholic Charities has direct links to websites of Diocese based groups/charities such as the Diocesan Justice and Peace Commission, Catholic Care, St Monica Housing, St Vincent de Paul Society etc. There are also links to Caritas Social Action Network (CSAN which operates on behalf of the Catholic Bishops’, of England and Wales), Caritas Europa and Caritas Internationalis. •, A section for each of the following groups: Criminal Justice, Youth Leadership, Dementia Group, Disabilities Group and Asylum Seekers and Refugees Group. •, Overtime we have produced a number of resour ces which can be downloaded by accessing the tab labelled Resources e.g. several leafl,ets about the spiritual aspects of people living with dementia, Disabilities, information on the Universal Credit Scheme, summary of the Diocesan Transport Policy, and how to engage with your elected representatives: ideas for Catholic Advocacy. •, Of specifi,c use are directories of services for people living with dementia, people living with disabilities and those engaged with the criminal justice system such as prisoners, ex-offenders, families and victims of crime. These directories also offer links to how to volunteer your services. •, There are also podcasts of personal testimonies from a range of people talking about their live d experiences as carers and service providers. •, The tab called Parish Groups provides details of existing charitable /social action groups in each parish based on information collated as a result of a diocese wide audit. This information can of course be updated if fresh information is submitted. Caritas Leeds has also developed links with the Catholic Association for Racial Justice, the Diocesan Justice and Peace Commission, Leeds Citizens, Growing Old Gracefully, Christians on Ageing, Citizens UK and the Leeds Church Institute.

DIOCESE Diocese of Leeds 50 PASTORAL COUNCIL A Diocesan Pastoral Council was constituted in the Diocese of Leeds by Bishop Mar cus in January 2019. The Code of Canon Law states, “,In each Diocese, in so far as pastoral circumstances suggest, a pastoral council is to be established. Its function, under the authority of the Bishop, is to study and weigh those matters which concern the pastoral works in the diocese, and to propose practical conclusions concerning them”, (Canon 511). The Code goes on to explain that “,A pastor al council is composed of members of Christ’,s faithful who are in full communion with the Catholic Church: clerics, members of institutes of consecrated life, and especially lay people. They are designated in the manner determined by the diocesan Bishop”, (Canon 512 §,1). The membership of the Council aims to “,truly refl,ect[s] the entire portion of the people of God which constitutes the diocese, taking account of the different regions of the diocese, of social conditions and professions, and of the part played in the apostolate by the members, w hether individually or in association with others”, Canon 512 §,2.

DIOCESE Diocese of Leeds 51 Organ Scholars: Grace Middleton Francis Tempest Schools Singing Programme The nationally-acclaimed Schools Singing Programme plays a key role in youth evangelisation and the training of young voices in liturgical and other choral music. Two-thirds of Diocesan schools are already members of the programme and our aspiration is to offer the service to all schools in the Diocese. The 6,000 children in the programme refl,ect the rich diversity of the Diocese of Leeds and we seek to improve the social outcomes, especially in the disad vantaged areas. Liturgical Choirs Members of the liturgical choirs are drawn from the Schools Singing Programme and are centred in regional clusters. These choirs cover the age ranges of 5 to 18 and often work in partnership with parishes. Current choirs include Bradford Catholic Youth Choir (fi,ve separ ate groups), Huddersfi,eld Youth Choirs (three groups), Bishop Konstant Youth Choirs (three groups), Ripon and Harrogate Junior Choirs and Leeds Cathedral Choir (numbering around 100 young singers across seven groups), who regularly broadcast on national television and radio, and are the most socially and culturally diverse cathedral choir in the country. Keyboard Studies Programme The Keyboard Studies Programme was founded in 2016 and provides high-quality organ, piano, classical accordion and melodica tuition to schools across the Diocese. With a national decline in students learning the organ, the programme aims to reintroduce this instrument steeped in tradition to students of all backgrounds, teaching them valuable musical skills and opening doors to opportunities in further education, and skills in choral direction and accompaniment. National Schools Singing Programme The Diocesan Director of Music, Director of the Schools Singing Programme and Music Programme Manager also lead the National Schools Singing Programme. So far, this initiative has pro vided seed funding and consultancy to 26 Catholic dioceses and six Anglican cathedrals in the UK to create or enhance their own schools singing programmes for children educated in state schools. Taking inspiration from the model developed in the Diocese of Leeds, this nationwide youth evangelisation programme combines the power of music with the sacred liturgy to bring children and their families back into the Church .

Only two diocesan groups pre-date us, namely Liverpool and Salford. Our annual Lourdes Pilgrimage provides unique opportunity to gather as a Diocese with the Bishop to pray and journey in faith. It is a time to stand apart from the rigours of life and seek the peace, healing and grace which a pilgrimage experience can afford. Pilgrims come from all parts of the Diocese and beyond. In Lourdes we encounter pilgrims from all parts of the world. Sick and less able adult pilgrims who require assistance are helped by the 300 or so y oung pilgrims from diocesan schools and colleges. These young people come as pilgrims too. The doctors, nurses and carers form a Hospitality Team in order to support the sick and less able. They serve in a spirit inspired by lo ve of God and lo ve of neighbour . The Pilgrimage accepts all Catholic Safeguarding requirements and fully implements the legislation.

DIOCESE Diocese of Leeds 57 WALSINGHAM PILGRIMAGE Saturday 28 September 2024 Walsingham - a brief history Walsingham, in north Norfolk, has been a place of pilgrimage since medieval times, when for most people travel to Rome or Compostella was virtually impossible. The original shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham, founded in 1061, was destroyed at the Reformation. Many barren years passed until the Slipper Chapel, a 14th century wayside pilgrim chapel, wa s restored, and pilgrimage to Walsingham began once more. In 1934, the English bishops named the Slipper Chapel the Catholic National Shrine of Our Lady. Walsingham - its spirituality The idea of going on pilgrimage is deeply embedded in the Christian faith, and, earlier still, in the Jewish tradition. Every year Mary and Joseph joined the annual pilgrimage to Jerusalem for the Feast of the Passove r , taking J esus with them. Huge numbers today similarly make a pilgrimage to many Holy Places around the world, hundreds of thousands of them to Walsingham. Almost everyone speaks of the peace they fi,nd in Walsingham, an atmosphere which some detect even on the approaching lanes. There are some who fi,nd their way to Walsingham to give thanks for some blessing in their lives. Others come to make a new start or fi,nd some way through confusion in their lives. There may be a desire to seek forgiveness in confession and reconciliation or return to the Church. The sacrament of the sick is frequently received here, and people come to fi,nd healing, strength and God’,s grace through the prayers of Our Lady. The spirituality behind everything in Walsingham is to be found in the words of Our Lady when she was asked to become the mother of the Lord. Instead of questioning she simply responded, ‘,Let it be done to me according to your word’, (Luke 1: 26). She lovingly sought and chose to do the will of God. Whatever motivates a person to come to Walsingham, there is awakened in the soul open to God a desire to try and do his will. Discovering the will of God, let alone doing it, is often far from easy. On numerous occasions in the Gospel Mary ‘,pondered these things in her heart’,. Walsingham is gentle, offering space and time to ponder and pray, and work things out. It was in this spirit that Richeldis responded to the request made of her to build in Walsingham a replica of the home in Nazareth where Mary had made her initial response to God. Walsingham is the home of Mary where, like a mother, she is able to infl,uence, guide, teach and love us if we let her , just as she did her Son. Most importantly, she asks us to say with her and through her, ‘,Let it be done to me according to your word’,.

DIOCESE Diocese of Leeds 58 ST WILFRID’,S WAY Friday 11 and Saturday 12 October 2024 The Annual St Wilfrid’,s Way Diocesan ‘,Camino’, takes place on the nearest Friday and Saturday to St Wilfrid’,s Feast Day (12 October). As a follow-up to his St Patrick’,s, Huddersfi,eld to Leeds Cathedral ‘,Camino’, instituted in the 2015 Jubilee Year of Mercy, Stephen Habron, a parishioner at Holy Redeemer Parish, Huddersfi,eld, compiled a booklet on a new walking pilgrimage route: from Leeds Cathedral to Ripon via Knaresborough, Bishop Thornton and Fountains Abbey. In 2016 this became the new official diocesan walking pilgrimage, St Wilfrid’,s Way , which takes place each October, over two days around the time of St Wilfrid’,s Feast Day. , Anyone may walk either all or ANY part of the Camino (either staying overnight en route OR going home). , All those volunteering to provide hospitality, sustenance or transport for the walkers are pilgrims too –, and are especially welcome! St Wilfrid’,s Way is in stages, which may be walked either one stage at a time, or in its entirety ove r two days. Beginning with a Pilgrims’, Mass at Leeds Cathedral, the route mainly follows country tracks and paths and is designed to avoid major roads whilst still being within easy reach of the A61, ‘,bus services and the railway stations at Leeds, Harrogate and Knaresborough. , We pass through the natural environment on the way to visit some of the most historic sacred sites in the Diocese, including: the Carmelite Monastery at Wood Hall, the mediaeval wayside Shrine of Our Lady of the Crag in Knaresborough, the Parish of St Joseph’,s in Bishop Thornton where the upper room of the Presbytery is the oldest Mass House in the Diocese, Markenfi,eld Hall with its Recusant Catholic links, the National Trust and World Heritage Site of Fountains Abbey, and fi,nally Ripon, where the Cathedral was once home to the Shrine of St Wilfrid. The Pilgrimage ends with Mass at the Parish Church of St Wilfrid, designed by J oseph Hansom and Edward Pugin and one of the architectural treasures of our Diocese. Copies of the St Wilfrid’,s Way route are updated each year and are FREE to download from the Diocese of Leeds website (hard copies are also made available at Leeds Cathedral, St Patrick’,s Church in Holy Redeemer P arish, Huddersfi,eld and in parishes along the route). If you are interested in walking St Wilfrid’,s Way, please contact Rowan Morton-Gledhill via Email: communications@dioceseofl,eeds.org.uk The St Wilfrid’,s Way Camino was the inspiration and model for new Cathedral to local Shrine walking routes in each of the Catholic dioceses of England and Wales. These are listed on a new website www.pilgrimways.org.uk created by former Caritas Social Action Network CEO Dr Phil McCarthy from Clifton Diocese, who has previously made solo walking pilgrimages between Canterbury, Rome and Constantinople and who joined St Wilfrid’,s Way in October 2022.

Please send any changes to yearbook@dioceseofleeds.org.uk Prior to 1908 England and Wales were under the jurisdiction of the Congregation for the Propagation of the Faith (Propaganda Fide) and all `parishes` were canonically styled as `missions` and the priests who had charge of them were `missioners`. Certain important parishes were styled as `missionary rectories` in an attempt to introduce a certain stability, the priests who had charge of these were styled `missionary rectors`, hence the title `Rector` for some parish priests today. By the decree Sapientia Consilio of 1908 England and Wales were placed under the Sacred Consistorial Congregation and the `missions` became canonical `parishes` and the priests in charge became parish priests.

In response to the needs of the Church in her time she dedicated the Sisters to education and social work. Mother Mary Joseph encouraged her Sisters to grow in total surrender to God, identifi,cation with Jesus in his Passion, Death and Resurrection and a spirit of selfl,ess service to the poor, in lives strengthened by the Euc harist and by the shared vision of a praying community. This remains the spirit by w hich the Sisters of the Cross and Passion strive to live toda y. In our service of the Church and the w orld, we share God’,s love and compassion with the poor and journey in solidarity with those who are seeking human and spiritual development. Everywhere, we are committed to keeping alive the memory of J esus Crucifi,ed, the greatest expression of God’,s love, and to bringing the joy and hope of the Resurrection to the pain of the world today.

CLERGY 160 OBITUARIES REV FR GERALD CREASEY RIP Fr Gerry Creasey w as born in Leeds on 24 May 1934. He wa s one of two sons born to George and Margaret Creasey, who live d in the parish of the Holy Rosary. His brother John predeceased him. In 1945 Fr Gerry became a pupil at St Mic hael’,s College in Leeds, a grammar school founded by the J esuits in 1905. From there he went to Hatfi,eld College at Durham University to study for a degree in history. After graduation, in 1955 he entered the Venerable English College in Rome to begin his studies for the priesthood. He studied philosophy and theology at the Pontifi,cal Gregorian University, and he was ordained in Rome at the Church of the Sacred Heart in the Piazza Navona on 29 October 1961. A feature of his years at school, university and seminary was not only his academic ability but his prowess as a sportsman. He was a talented footballer and cricketer who was proud to have represented St Michael’,s, Durham University, the VEC and his Cambridge college on the fi,eld of play. After ordination Fr Gerry went to St Edmund’, s House at Cambridge University to obtain a teaching qualifi,cation as a student at Christ’,s College. In 1962 he joined the staff of the recently opened St Thomas Aquinas Grammar School for boys. He was to remain there until 1979, by w hich time it had merged with the neighbouring St John Bosco School to form the present-day Cardinal Heenan High School. For much of this time there was another priest on the teaching staff at ‘,Aquinas’,, the late Fr Mic hael O’,Reilly, who was not only Fr Gerry’, s colleague but his great friend for more than fi,fty years. During his years at ‘,Aquinas’, Fr Gerry serv ed as assistant priest at St Paul’,s, Alwoodley (1963- 68), St Mary’,s, Horsforth (1968) and St Edward’,s, Clifford (1969-79) In 1979 Bishop Wheeler appointed Fr Gerry as parish Priest of St P aul’,s, Cleckheaton. In 1988 he moved to St Francis of Assisi, Morley and two years later he became Parish Priest of St Joseph the Worker at Sherburn-in-Elmet. In 1992 he went to live at St P atrick’,s, Leeds, assisting in the parish while serving as Chaplain to St James’,s University Hospital. In 2000 he moved to St Michael’,s, Knottingley as Parish Priest and in 2002 he became the Chaplain to the Little Sisters of the Poor and the residents of Mount St Joseph’,s Home in Headingley. Fr Gerry retired in 2009 on reac hing the age of seventy-fi,ve. Since 2015 he had lived at Hinsley Court, adjacent to the Diocesan Pastoral Centre at Hinsley Hall in Headingley. His ministry in retirement remained an active one. He ga ve generously of his time in co vering for parish clergy who were ill or away on holiday, and he maintained his long association with the Carmelite Sisters at Wood Hall. It was in their chapel that he celebrated Mass on the occasion of his Diamond Jubilee in October 2021 (prior to hosting a grand lunch party at Hinsley Hall). Fr Gerry’, s health deteriorated in the months after his eighty-eighth birthday in May 2022 and after a period in hospital he moved into Mount St Joseph’,s Home to be cared for by the Little Sisters of the Poor. It was here that he died peacefully on the afternoon of Thursday 19 January 2023. Fr Creasey completed his studies and w as ordained to the priesthood a year before the start of the Second Vatican Council, but he was later to be enthused by the sense of renew al in the Church that emanated from its deliberations and its teachings. Fr Gerry li ved out his priesthood during an era of great change in the life of the Church and he is unique among the Leeds clergy of the time in the extent to which he has placed on record his memories of, and his thoughts about, the life of a priest in the late twentieth century. In 2001 he published ‘,Ruby Thoughts –, Refl,ections of a Year’,, in which he brought together a series of articles written for the occasion by the men of the VEC (himself included) who had been ordained in 1961. Almost twenty years later in 2020, at home during the Covid ‘,lockdown’,, he wrote a very personal account of the priestly life in a memoir entitled ‘,From Venerable to Vulnerable’,. In addition, since 2016 the arch i ves of the VEC have been in possession of the Creasey Papers, which comprise some 350 letters that Fr Gerry wrote to his parents in Leeds on a weekly basis during his six years at the College (when, as was the custom at the time, he only returned home once while a seminarian, in the summer of 1958). They represent the largest single arch i val deposit by an alumnus of the College and in con veying not just personal
