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.



Latest News

    During October all the windows in the Rectory will be taken out and renovated, and then put back.  New secondary double glazing will also be installed simultaneously.  The reason for this is that the windows are almost 170 years old and in dire need of repair.  The wood is becoming rotten, and it is impossible to open the windows.  This is leading to an unhealthy and unsafe environment for those who live and work there.  The rooms are airless in summer and if there were a fire it would be impossible to escape.  The old secondary double glazing has also come to the end of its natural life.  In recent years two visitors have been injured because the secondary glazing has slammed down on their fingers.  One priest ended up in hospital.  The property department of the Diocese has told us that this situation needs to be remedied as a priority.  The total cost of the repair of the old external windows and to install new secondary glazing is £45,000 plus VAT.

    Following comments that have been made to Fr Matthew regarding the cost of the wall repair (£19,500) he asked Edward Poyser the financial secretary of the Diocese to look into it, he came back to Fr Matthew with the following reply:- 

    “In relation to the price of the wall, the advice of Colinshall Green who supervised the work is that the price is, in fact, in line with similar work which had to be done for us in rebuilding a wall at another parish.  Given the state of an emergency, and the overseeing of the work by Collinshall Green, whom we have used for many years, to find a reasonable figure, we believe that both we and the they acted totally correctly.  Were the circumstances to arise again then the same instructions would be given.  We also believe that you yourself acted totally appropriately, not least given that one of the other dioceses is facing a £3 million claim and criminal prosecution for the loss of an arm of someone when a wall fell on him.”
