Bishop Ralph made his first visit to the Barnsley Deanery to celebrate a special Mass at Holy Rood Church on Tuesday, 16 September.

It was a joint venture with parishioners, altar servers and musicians from the Barnsley Deanery. Refreshments were served afterwards in the church hall and Bishop Ralph cut a special cake to celebrate the occasion.
