For more information on what is happening at St Hugh's this week
please take a look at our current newsletter.

Following government guidelines our churches will be closed until further notice.  The newsletter will continue to be updated.  Thank you for your support at this time.


Almighty God, we pray, give us holy priests to strengthen us in our Christian calling,
that we may be more closely conformed to Christ and share more effectively in his saving work.
Through their ministry at the altar, and by their administration of the sacraments,
may our lives be sanctified and become more closely associated with the redemptive sacrifice of Christ.
As they preach the Gospel and teach the faith may we be inspired to dedicate ourselves to the work of evangelisation.
As they serve our parishes may we be led into deeper communion of faith, hope and charity.
O God, bless our diocese also with men and women who will serve the mission of the Church
by taking religious vows, inspiring us with lives consecrated to you. 

 Mary Immaculate - pray for us, Saint Hugh of Lincoln - pray for us,
all the saints of our
Diocese - pray for us.  Amen.


Living God, you walk alongside us and speak to us throughout the Scriptures.  

Your Son, Jesus Christ, listens to our hopes and fears and shows us how to live for one another.  

Send us the Holy Spirit to open our hearts and minds so that we may be your witnesses 

throughout the world.  Amen.

  • Important Notice regarding Parish Finances

    Because of coronavirus (COVID-19), all public Acts of Worship are suspended, and the staff have been placed on temporary leave (‘furlough’), therefore our parish church office will remained CLOSED until further notice.  

    We will stay in communication with you during this time of isolation.

    Emails will be answered as best as possible, but it may take time to reply.  If you wish to have urgent contact with Fr Matthew, please telephone him at St Hugh’s on 01522 528961.

    Some parishioners have asked how they can continue to make their offerings during the period our churches are closed.  This is much appreciated; our Parish needs your continued support at this time.  Coronavirus has raised some very particular financial challenges for us.  Not only do we have no plate and envelope collection, but we cannot hire our parish hall either.  We must, however, continue to pay for essentials, such as our priests’ living expenses, the staff wages, the upkeep of our buildings, and other ongoing costs.

    Of course, we realise that the current emergency is affecting people’s income, and they may not be able to continue their level of offerings.  If this is the case, we fully understand, and our prayers are with you.

    If you currently pay by Standing Order, this will continue as usual unless you tell your bank to vary it.

    If you usually give by envelope or via cash in the collection, you could now make a donation via your online or telephone banking.  You can either made individual payments whenever you like, or you can set up a regular Standing Order.  This can be stopped at any time; for example, if you wish to resume giving cash or envelope once Sunday Mass is resumed.

    The Parish Lloyds Bank Account details are:  Account Name: St Hugh’s RCP Lincoln, Sort Code: 30 95 05, Account Number:  01507508.

    If you are a UK taxpayer, you also have the option of adding Gift Aid, whereby the UK Government adds a further 25% to your donation.  Anyone wishing to set up a new Gift Aid arrangement, can find the form on the parish website Newsletter section.  

    Our parish relies on donations to stay open and provide care and support to everyone in our community.  Now more than ever, and only if you are able to, please consider giving generously to support our mission and ministry. Thank you for your continued support.

    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: office@sthughslincoln.org.uk 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.
