DEACON DAVID SAYS….. Thank you to all the parishioners of St Hugh’s for their prayers and support over the past 4 years that I have been studying for the diaconate, and thank you also to all who attended the Ordination Mass last Saturday, those who prepared and attended last Sunday's celebrations, as well as for all the cards, gifts and kind words I received over the weekend. I was really overwhelmed by the response, and I now look forward to many years service in the parish.
May God bless you all.
