The nationally acclaimed York sculptor Charles Gurrey has produced a unique Hanging Rood Cross design for Our Lady & St James’ church. The Cross, which is in memory of Eileen and Hedley Slack, would be suspended from the roof of the chancel, above the altar.

Live streaming of Masses from Our Lady & St James

With the current Covid-19 situation happening around the world we have sadly had to close both Holy Rood and Our Lady St James temporarily. During this time we have taken the decision to stream Masses from Our Lady St James via the parish website and YouTube.
Mass will be streamed at 10 am every day, except Tuesday (no Mass) and Saturday (6pm). The parish bulletin will provide details of intentions for the upcoming week.
To view these Masses please visit the Catholic Barnsley YouTube channel  where you can Subscribe (free) and click the Notification bell to receive an alert when a Mass starts.

Special thanks to Lee Redhead who has devoted a lot of time and resources into enabling this streaming service to be available to parishioners.
