On Sunday morning, members of the 100 strong Bradford Catholic Youth Choir - the majority of whom are at St Bede's and St Joseph's and the primary schools in the Bradford and Keighley Catholic Schools Partnership - will broadcast BBC Radio 4's Sunday Worship.  The programme, which has around 1.75 million listeners (more than Desert Island discs and The Archers), will be a Mass celebrated by Fr Timothy Whitwell and the homily given by Fr Michael Hall.

Guy Fawkes Day, or Bonfire Day, is a day which has historically emphasised divisions in society. In this service, live from St Joseph's Catholic Church in inner-city Bradford, we hear that we are all sisters and brothers in Christ's love.  The choir will sing the Gregorian Missa Cum Jubilo, the motet Anima Christi by Mgr Marco Frisina, and the hymns Praise to the holiest, Sweet sacrament divine and Firmly I believe and truly. 

The service is broadcast at 8.10am - congregation must be seated by 7.50am at the latest.  You can hear the Mass live on BBC Radio 4, or following transmission on BBC iPlayer.
