Please make a special effort to attend all three Station Masses, this year, as a mini-pilgrimage around our Deanery. This is an excellent opportunity to meet the clergy and to pray together as a Deanery. Every single person has a unique part to play as a Living Stone in the building up of God’s Kingdom here on earth.

Tuesday, 4th March, from 6.30 pm: Following last year’s winning combination, St Hugh’s Hall Committee has decided that the traditional Shrove Tuesday supper should consist of Pies, Potatoes, and Peas, followed by Pancakes (for pudding) plus tea/coffee or soft drinks, all for the price of £4 (adults) or £3 (children and students).
Tickets will go on sale in the near future and you can choose either a meat pie (beef) or a cheese and onion slice. There is no starting time, as such. Just come along anytime between 6.30 and 7.30 pm, so that we can stagger the making of the pancakes. This is an evening for chatting with your friends, rather than being entertained. If you are giving up alcohol for Lent, and would like one last tipple with your meal, feel free to bring along your own wine or beer.
Profits and donations will be sent to Fr Colum Kelly at the Apostleship of the Sea, Immingham, to help with the refurbishment of the Seafarers Centre, which was destroyed during the recent floods. Further details and tickets from Mary Wilford (01522 800114).

“Greetings of Peace and Love!
Though we have experienced pain, hardships, and devastation due to the wrath of super
typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) but still we are very grateful to God that He sends generous and kind-hearted people who are willing and able to help us rise and give us a glimpse of hope. People who are like you helping us out that neither distance nor the colour of skin is a hindrance.
With hearts full of gratitude, we wish to inform you that we received your financial assistance for our parish, St Anthony de Padua, amounting one hundred ten thousand seven hundred seventy-one pesos and ten centavos (£1,500). This is a very great support for us in the repair of our church as well as in rebuilding the lives of our parishioners.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank-you so much.
May God bless you and return your generosity a hundred fold!”
