CAFOD HARVEST FAST DAY - Friday, 5th October

 This weekend (29th/30th September) our parish CAFOD representatives Dee Ellidge and Frank Heyes will give a short appeal at the close of  Sunday Masses on behalf of CAFOD.  The CAFOD collection will take place next Sunday, 7th October; there is an envelope for you to use inside your newsletter, or at the back of the church. 

Family Fast Day Prayer:  Creator God, in love you give life.  In your generosity you create the gifts of the earth.  As daughters and sons of the same Father, may we learn to share the plentiful gifts of creation, especially with those most in need.  Give us open hands and loving hearts, so that we take less and give more.  We ask that all may benefit from your goodness, and share in the fullness of life you have promised.  Amen.

CONFIRMATION AT ST HUGH’S, Sunday, 17th November at the 10am Mass.

posted 24 May 2019, 05:39 by Susan Weaver   [ updated 7 Jun 2019, 05:42 ]

Bishop Patrick will preside.  Confirmation is the sacrament whereby we become full members of the Catholic Church. It completes what was begun in Baptism and at First Holy Communion. At Confirmation candidates receive a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit to equip them to live as an adult disciple of Jesus Christ. Confirmation candidates are expected to prepare for the sacrament by attending all of the preparation classes and by doing their best to live out their faith. They do this by living according to God’s commandments, by praying each day and by coming to Mass regularly on Sundays. Only those who wish to commit to these things should apply. In this Diocese all candidates should be aged eleven or over at the time of Confirmation. You will be expected to attend the Confirmation course which starts on Thursday, 26th September; details of course dates/time are on the form.

If you wish to apply please speak to Fr Matthew.  Thank you.

We meet on a Tuesday evening (school term time) from 7pm until 9pm in St Hugh’s church hall.  We were originally a watercolour group but this has been extended to crafts eg knitting, card making etc.  If you have a crafting hobby and would like to join us please do.  We are a small group but very friendly, and the little money we raise through donations goes to charity.  So why not come along for a coffee, chat and a bit of crafting.  Next meeting is on Tuesday, 4th June and the car park will be open!
