Prayers will be said at dozens of church services across West Yorkshire today for teacher Ann Maguire who was killed in front of her pupils at a school in Leeds on Monday.
The Catholic Diocese of Leeds wrote to all Catholic churches in the area, asking them to hold prayers for the 61-year-old who taught at Corpus Christi Catholic College for 40 years.
Together they have a combined congregation of around 32,000 people, the diocese said.
A book of condolence has also been opened at the cathedral in Leeds for those who want to express their sympathies.
