The Batley Torchlight Procession took place this year on Monday 7 October.
This annual gathering assembled in Batley Market Square in honour of Our Lady and processed from there to St Mary of the Angels Church for Benediction. The Procession was led by Bishop Marcus and the homily was preached by the Dean of Dewsbury, Fr Nicholas Hird.
A supper of pie and peas following the event was enjoyed at St Mary’s Parochial Hall.
