Church of England Diocese of Sheffield St. Leonard and St. Jude, Doncaster

About Us

Things are getting better. Our church is now open for communal worship and throughout the day for private prayer. With effect from Thursday 27.1.2022 it will no longer be a legal requirement to wear a face covering in shops, on public transport, places of worship and many other enclosed places. This does not mean that you cannot wear a face covering if wearing one makes you feel more at ease. The government expects us as individuals and groups to act sensibly - the pandemic has not gone away.

Parish Policies.

1. Giving - That we encourage planned sacrificial giving and only raise money through other means for specific urgent building projects with the approval of the Church Council.

2. Missions and Charities - That we allocate ten per cent of our income to the work of missions and charities.

3. Mass Rite - That we are a catholic parish within the Church of England and that we use the current Roman Rite.

May your people, Lord, persevere in obedience to your will, so that, through this obedience, your Church in our time, may grow in grace & increase in numbers. Through Christ our Lord. Amen 

Living Lord Jesus calls his followers to seek first your Kingdom. Renew us as we make your love known. Release us to share freely together in mission and rejuvenate us to be fruitful in your service. Give us courage, wisdom and compassion, that strengthened with the grace of the Holy Spirit, we may as the Diocese of Sheffield, both flourish and grow through Christ our Lord. Amen.

SAFEGUARDING.

As a parish we take seriously the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults. We have formally adopted the House of Bishops 'Promoting a Safer Church' policy statement and a copy is displayed in the church. The Church Council has a current Parish Safeguarding Policy relating to children and vulnerable adults. A current DBS is in place for the parish Safeguarding Representative and for  those meeting the eligibility criteria.

The Parish Safeguarding Representative is Tony Lindley who along the with the Parish Priest are ultimately responsible for any matters of concern relating to children and vulnerable adults. Contact details are on display in the parish church.
