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.

In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, so many aspects of our lives must change.  This includes the ways in which we publicly express our faith.

It is very clear that, following official advice and in order to keep each other safe, save lives and support the NHS, at this time we must not gather for
public acts of worship in our churches.

This will begin from Friday evening, 20th March 2020, until further notice.

St Hugh's Church

Fr Matthew will continue to celebrate daily Mass privately.  Your Mass intentions will still be said.

St Hugh's needs your support and if you are able to continue with your weekly offering it would be very much appreciated.  Perhaps you could set up a direct debit?
Email: for information.  Perhaps you could post your weekly offering either in person or by Royal Mail?

Let us keep each other in our prayers.  Hopefully we will be able to celebrate Mass in St Hugh's again in the not to distant future.

Updates will be given via this website.  If you know a parishioner who does not have access to a computer please inform them of any updates.
