Welcome to our website
The parish was formed in 2006 by merging the adjoining parishes of St Mary and St Monica (which served Cottingley) and Sacred Heart (which served Bingley). We now have two churches in the parish, one from each of the two previous parishes.

Inn Churches/Winter Shelter 2017
Each winter for the last few years, a number of Christian churches in the Bradford district
have joined together to provide overnight shelter for about 12 homeless people overnight from
December to March. This coming winter (2017 - 2018) SS Mary and Monica parish will host the shelter from
Monday 11th December to Monday 18th December. There will a meeting on Tuesday, 31st
October at 7.45pm (after the All Saints Feast Vigil Mass) for all
those who are interested in helping. We need welcomers each evening, cooks,
over-nighters, breakfast team and mini-bus drivers plus accompaniers. If you have
not taken part in this before but are interested please do come to the meeting.
