Good News from the Universe!

Our friends at the Universe Catholic Weekly have a special New Year offer exclusively for parishes in the Diocese of Leeds – three FREE digital-copies of the weekly newspaper, beginning with the current edition, published below, which is full of news and views, with many articles and features from or about OUR Diocesan Family!

Just email your Parish Office for your FREE copies of the next two weeks’ digital editions!

As well as the regular weekly column written by our own Sir John Battle (Christ the King & Holy Family Parish, Bramley) and an obituary honouring the life and career of our much-loved retired priest, Mgr Peter Grant, this week’s paper also contains a full one and a half page article looking back at just some of the events and highlights in the Diocese during 2023. Elsewhere in the edition are articles about the Bambisanani Partnership, the sporting charity founded at St Mary’s Catholic Academy, Menston and a story celebrating the success in Southwark Archdiocese of the National Schools Singing Programme which was founded here by Diocese of Leeds Music.


The Universe is Britain’s oldest Catholic weekly paper and has all the mainstream local, national and international news, features and lifestyle content you would find in any quality journal – but from a Catholic perspective. It comes in both a digital format – and also as a traditional printed paper which your parish can order (with no returns needed), or which can be delivered direct to your letterbox at home!
