YEAR OF FAITH

The importance of Music and Singing

The harmony of signs (song, music, words and actions) is all the more expressive and fruitful when expressed in the cultural richness of the People of God who celebrate. Hence religious singing by the faithful is to be intellectually fostered so that in devotions and sacred exercises as well as in liturgical service, in conformity with the Church’s norms, the voices of the faithful may be heard. The Catechism of the Catholic Church (page 265)

 

During this season of Advent why not consider joining one of our parish music groups that
enhance our Liturgical celebrations? New members are always required and you will be warmly welcomed. If you would like more information about music at St Hugh’s please contact either Helen or David Knight for the Choir (Lincoln 820698) who sing at the 10am Sunday Mass or Ruth Holmes for the Folk Group (Lincoln 544297) who sing at the 6pm Sunday Mass.

   

‘Whoever sings well prays twice over’  (St Augustine).

Two Lincoln Martyrs

Fr Thomas Hunt and Fr Thomas Sprott came to Lincoln in June 1600.  They were arrested at the Saracen’s Head (an inn on the site of Waterstone’s Bookshop near the Stonebow). 
They were found guilty of treason, because they were Catholic priests, and were executed by being hung, drawn and quartered on Canwick Hill.  Both were still in their twenties.  They have been given the title “Blessed” and are commemorated on 10th December each year in our
diocese.

 

Session 3 – Saturday 15th Dec. at the Mount

Instead of a discussion group in December, all those who are interested in learning more about the documents of Vatican II are encouraged to go to The Mount (the Convent – at the top of Lindum Hill, LN2 5SL) for a day of Reflection from 11am-4pm. 

Please bring a packed lunch. Tea/coffee provided. Everyone is welcome.
