In 1865 the Little Sisters of the Poor opened a Home in Leeds. When the Home could not be adapted to present day needs a Home, Mount St. Joseph’s, was built in Headingly and opened in December 1971.
“Let God’s House be rebuilt in this Place”
Tuesday, September 20th, was chosen as the day to officially recognise the new Parish of St Jeanne Jugan in Leeds and to bless the Statue of St Jeanne Jugan, that the Little Sisters of the Poor had donated to the Parish.
The new Parish came about in the reordering of Parishes in the Leeds Diocese – you can read more on the Leeds Diocesan Website by clicking here.
