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.

Thursday, 17th October at 7.30pm in St Hugh’s Church Hall

At the recent “Live Simply” evening, it was decided to do our bit for climate change by
taking up the CAFOD challenge, here, at St Hugh’s, as well as in our own homes. 
We need to choose one main project and three supplementary ones.

This meeting is for everyone: all our nationalities and all the different groups who
attend St Hugh’s Church, as well as those who use the hall for meetings,
family occasions and parties.

Please spread the word to others, make sure your group is represented at the meeting,
and have your say!

We need to build up our choir, get it back to what it used to be.  Numbers have dwindled over the past few years, and the existing choir have done their very best to keep going, and a wonderful job they are doing too.  They enhance the liturgy at the 10am Sunday Masses, and other Masses during the year.  But now they need your help, they need more members!  Do you enjoy singing?  Would you like to be part of a friendly group who also like singing?  Would you like to do something for your church?  Please think about joining our choir; why not come along to one of the practices and see if it is something you would like to be part of. 

 The next practice is on Wednesday, 16th October at 6.30pm in the church (enter via the side door of the Rectory yard).

Bishop Patrick informs us that, following a major stroke Fr Colin remains in a very serious condition.  It is expected that he will be in hospital for some considerable time.  

At the explicit request of Fr. Colin’s family, and following advice from medical staff treating his condition, he is NOT permitted any visitors.  Please could all parishioners respect his privacy, while he recovers and keep him in your prayers.

NB:  From this week onward Fr Matthew will celebrate Mass at 9.30am at Our Lady’s, there will be NO Mass  at St Hugh’s on Wednesdays; he will also be celebrating the 7.30pm Friday Mass at Our Lady’s.  If you have already booked a Mass for Wednesday it will be reallocated to another day.  As we now have only two active priests in Lincoln changes to weekly Mass times etc., will be inevitable so keep an eye on your weekly newsletter for these changes.  Thank you for your understanding as we try to adjust to the current situation.
