 Thank-you to everyone who has made me feel welcome so far in your beautiful city, which I am just beginning to discover.  I am very pleased to be here.  I found out just after Easter that I would be moving, although the Bishop didn’t tell me where at that stage.  When I found out where I was coming I was pleasantly surprised. 

 Let me give you a little bit of my personal history.  I was born in Warsop near to Mansfield in 1971.  After I left university I trained and worked as a solicitor, but felt called to the priesthood.  At the age of 26 I went to study at Oscott College for the priesthood.  After ordination I served at the following parishes, West Bridgeford (2 years), St Philip’s Mansfield (3 years), Burton-on-Trent (7 years), and finally before here Our Lady & St Edward’s Nottingham (3 years). 

Please pray for me as I begin to serve you as your new parish priest.  I know that you will be missing Fr John as he is such a good priest.  We were ordained together at St Philip Neri Mansfield 14 years ago, so I have known him a long time, and we are good friends.  I cannot exactly replace him, but I look forward to serving as your parish priest for many years to come.

Thanks for these nine wonderful years, as we move forward you will all be in my thoughts and prayers. 
It has been a privilege to have been part of our St Hugh’s family and I will miss you all.

FR JOHN:  As you are all probably aware Bishop Patrick has asked Fr John to become the parish priest of St Philip Neri, Mansfield, alongside becoming parish priest of the parishes of St Joseph’s in Shirebrook, St Bernadette’s in Bolsover, and the community of Market Warsop.  It is a huge responsibly, and he will be assisted by Fr Raphel Imoni.  Fr John will be leaving St Hugh’s during the week beginning 22nd May; his final Sunday Mass here will be on the 21st May.  We will be having a ‘farewell’ Mass for Fr John sometime in June, which he has kindly agreed to return for.  The date has yet to be arranged so please keep an eye on future Newsletters for details. 

Our new parish priest will be Fr Matthew Jakes who is currently the parish priest of  Our Lady & St Edward, Nottingham.  Whilst we are all sad to hear that Fr John is leaving us, after over 9 happy years as parish priest of St Hugh’s,  it is our job now to make Fr Matthew feel welcome in his new home when he takes up his ministry at St Hugh’s at the end of May.
