 Lisa is one of our parishioners, and regularly attends Sunday Mass.  Many of you will know her. 

Lisa was reported  missing on Wednesday, 8th October.  We are all very concerned about her, and ask that you keep her in your prayers.  If you have any information on Lisa’s whereabouts please let Fr John know.

Since posting this item, and printing it in the newsletter we are happy to announce that Lisa has been found and she is safe and well.

 

Parish Pastoral Council

posted 17 Oct 2014 04:35 by Susan Weaver

We are required to renew our Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) every three years and therefore we are currently seeking nominations to form a new PPC which will begin to meet from November 2014.  If you would like to put yourself forward for the new PPC or you are an existing member and would like to continue to serve, can you please let Fr John know before Monday, 27th October, or email:  office@sthughslincoln.org.uk   In the event that there are more nominations than places on the PPC we will be holding an election process to which all parishioners will be eligible to vote.  If you would like any further information about the work of the PPC or the commitment required to be a member of the Council please speak to David Knight or a member of the clergy.

THE MONTH OF THE HOLY ROSARY

posted 3 Oct 2014 06:18 by Susan Weaver   [ updated 3 Oct 2014 06:21 ]

 October is the time we are reminded of the importance of uniting our prayers with the Mother of God and conforming ourselves to Christ as revealed in the mysteries of His life.  We grow in our appreciation of Christ through meditating on these mysteries.  Pope Paul VI said “Without contemplation, the Rosary is a body without a soul”.  We will be praying the Rosary after daily Mass from this Monday onwards.

Now that the Seafarers’ Centre has reopened, Fr Colum would be pleased to accept the things you have all been saving for him.  Could you please bring or send them to St Hugh’s Rectory as soon as possible as I plan to take them to him towards the end of October.    We shall also be running the Christmas shoebox appeal, and next week I will publish a list of suitable items for inclusion in a box.  Many thanks, Rosemary Howe, Parish Representative.
