February’s members’ meeting will be Graham Mitchell giving his talk ‘Catholic Revival, St. Anne’s and the Amazing Father Russell’ on Wednesday 9th February. Graham examines how the Catholic Faith survived in Keighley and tells how St. Anne’s Church and Presbytery were built with the help of local families. He then looks at the life of Fr. Joseph Russell, who was Parish Priest at St Anne’s for 40 years, and who set up two schools and six other churches around Keighley.
