Welcome to the Parish of the Holy Redeemer in Huddersfield. We are a large, ethnically diverse and welcoming Catholic Community serving the northern part of one of the largest towns in the North of England.
Huddersfield has a proud history, and central to this has been the presence of the Catholic church in one of the oldest missions (post Reformation) in the Diocese of Leeds. Since the early 19th century, priest and people have been serving the people of this town, most notably the poorest and most forgotten of all the town’s inhabitants. It was this radical witness that inspired a local landowner to give us the land on which to build the fine gothic church that is now St Patrick’s on New North Road.
Our forebears could only do this because of their firm conviction that Jesus Christ is the centre of all history and that He is still working through those who bear his name and try, daily, to align themselves on His model of sacrifice and service through their daily prayer and sacramental life within the parish.
We invite you to join with us in this mission of service which manifests itself in so many ways in this parish and in so doing find, as we are finding, that our hearts are more easily sated by service than greed or selfishness.
I am very grateful to Rachel Walsh for her work on this website and for all those who are helping us to develop our outreach to the local community. We are launching this website on Pentecost Sunday, the birthday of The Church. It is a pertinent time not only because it is Pentecost, but because at this point in our shared history we are emerging from a frightening and draining time of pandemic which has wrought so much suffering in so many ways, not all of them obvious. For those who have been ‘battered’ by the storms of the last year, we hope that our Christian community will be able to provide safety, healing and peace. Burdensome, indeed crucifying for some, though these months have been, we believe that Our Lord will not only lead us to new life but will indeed lead us to a deeper trust in Him.
May God bless you and all whom you love,
Fr Simon Lodge,
Holy Redeemer Parish, Huddersfield.
