About Us

The Parish of S.S. Leonard and Jude Scawsby with S. Luke's Scawthorpe.

S. Luke's is the daughter church for this parish, it is now used regularly for a weekly Mass and other events. Recently an Alpha Course was held and the building is also used by community groups. The Parish serves the areas of Cusworth, Scawsby, Scawthorpe and Sunnyfields. The parish church is located on Barnsley Road, Scawsby opposite the Aldi supermarket and because it is the parish church most of the services and events are held there. S. Luke's is located on Broachgate in Scawthorpe, near to the Post Office. We are a small, but growing congregation and a warm welcome will be extended to anyone who wishes to join us.

The services and events for the parish have been included deliberately so that you can enjoy the benefits of both, after all it is only a short walk and even shorter drive to S. Leonard's Whichever church you choose to attend you will be made very welcome.

Both our churches are now open for communal worship and the parish church is usually open throughout the day for private prayer. All restrictions put in place to combat the Covid Pandemic have now been lifted . Individuals are still asked to act sensibly and responsibly because although the virus has not gone away, we do have to learn to live with it. If you still prefer to take your own precautions such as wearing a mask or hand sanitizing then please do so.

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 and 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 may flourish and grow through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

SAFEGUARDING.

As a parish we take seriously the safeguarding of children, young people and vulnerable adults. We have formally adopted the House of Bishop's 'Promoting a Safer Church' policy statement and a copy is displayed in the parish church. The Church Council has a current Parish Safeguarding Policy relating to children, young people and vulnerable adults. A current DBS (criminal record check) is in place for the Parish Safeguarding Officer and those meeting the eligibility criteria.

The Parish Safeguarding Officer is Tony Lindley who along with the Parish Priest are ultimately responsible for any matters of concern relating to children, young people and vulnerable adults. Contact details are on display in the Parish Church and on the parish website along with contact details for other organisations who may be of assistance to this same group of people.
