kirkstall abbey

We will be able to open next Sunday for the following Masses: 8.15am at St Mary’s; 9am at Holy Name; 9.45am at Assumption & 11am at St Mary’s. Sadly, we do not have volunteers for the Vigil Mass or the 11.15am Mass at the moment. Many thanks to those people who have already generously offered their time. Social distancing requirements significantly reduce the seating capacity of our churches. It is for this reason that the Bishops of England and Wales have been very clear that the obligation to attend Sunday Mass remains suspended.



To contribute £5 to our parish offertory, you can now text Church OLK to 70500. There is no way to change the amount donated. If you are unable to contribute £5 a week, text monthly instead. Many thanks for your continued support and generosity.
