Welcome to the Parish of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour and St Clare.
Whether you are a parishioner or a visitor to the site, you are most welcome, and we hope that you will find the information that you are looking for. A warm welcome awaits you at our Masses, details of which can be found on the site under "Mass Times".
We look forward to seeing you at St Clare's soon.
Fr Stephen Webb (Parish Priest).
Changes at St Clare's
As many of you now know, the Bishop has asked me to leave St Clare's parish at the end of August to take up a new appointment as Parish Priest of St Joseph's Church in Harrogate. Of course change is often difficult, but with the help of God, I'm sure all will be well!
The new Parish Priest of St Clare's from September will be Fr Paul Redmond, currently PP of Christ the King in Bramley, Leeds. Fr Redmond is a "Bradford Lad" and is very much looking forward to taking up his appointment here at St Clare's.
I will be succeeding Fr Neil Byrne in Harrogate, who will take up his new appointments as Parish Priest of Christ the King, Bramley and Holy Family, Armley (Leeds). He has been a much loved pastor to the people of St Joseph's for the past 14 years, and will indeed be missed!
Please remember in your prayers all those priests who will be moving parishes this summer, and all of the parish communities affected by the moves.
Our Lady, Saint Clare & Saint Brendan...pray for us!
