When a new parish priest arrives it is required that he take certain oaths of office before he can officially take the office of parish priest. This will take place within the Mass of Installation.
Please come along and welcome Fr Matthew to his new parish.  Canon Colin Taylor, the Dean, will preside at the Mass.  A buffet and refreshments will be available afterwards

Second collection:  Today is Sea Sunday, when the Church prays for all those who live and work at sea.  Without them we would not have most of the items we buy in shops.  Today’s second collection is for Apostleship of the Sea (AoS), the Church’s official maritime welfare agency.  It supports seafarers both practically and spiritually.  This collection is vital to enable it to continue its work, so please give generously and remember seafarers in your prayers.  Thank-you. 
To donate online please visit: www.apostleshipofthesea.org.uk

 Coffee morning: Please join us in the church hall after both morning Masses this Sunday; the usual refreshments are available plus you will have the opportunity to take part in the raffle, and buy a few cakes to enjoy after you Sunday dinner, or to enjoy with your coffee in the hall!  Monies raised from the coffee morning are for the Seafarers Centre at Immingham, and will be given to Fr Colum to support his work with the seafarers there.  Also, from now until the end of July, I will be collecting clothes for the seafarers, which will be taken up to Immingham early in August.  Clothes can be left at the church or rectory, or if you need anything collected please ring me on 01526 320054.  Many thanks.  Rosemary Howe.

Next Sunday we welcome Fr Michael Heap who will make an appeal on behalf of The White Fathers.  The White Fathers work in 23 countries in Africa and 2 places in the Middle East (Jerusalem and Lebanon). 
“We are at the service of the local Church wherever we are present, sometimes fulfilling specialist needs, sometimes reaching out to the poor and marginalised, always witnessing to Jesus Christ in an African context.”

You can find out more about the work of the White Fathers on their website: http://www.thewhitefathers.org.uk

 Thank-you to everyone who has made me feel welcome so far in your beautiful city, which I am just beginning to discover.  I am very pleased to be here.  I found out just after Easter that I would be moving, although the Bishop didn’t tell me where at that stage.  When I found out where I was coming I was pleasantly surprised. 

 Let me give you a little bit of my personal history.  I was born in Warsop near to Mansfield in 1971.  After I left university I trained and worked as a solicitor, but felt called to the priesthood.  At the age of 26 I went to study at Oscott College for the priesthood.  After ordination I served at the following parishes, West Bridgeford (2 years), St Philip’s Mansfield (3 years), Burton-on-Trent (7 years), and finally before here Our Lady & St Edward’s Nottingham (3 years). 

Please pray for me as I begin to serve you as your new parish priest.  I know that you will be missing Fr John as he is such a good priest.  We were ordained together at St Philip Neri Mansfield 14 years ago, so I have known him a long time, and we are good friends.  I cannot exactly replace him, but I look forward to serving as your parish priest for many years to come.
