CAFOD HARVEST FAST DAY - Friday, 5th October

 This weekend (29th/30th September) our parish CAFOD representatives Dee Ellidge and Frank Heyes will give a short appeal at the close of  Sunday Masses on behalf of CAFOD.  The CAFOD collection will take place next Sunday, 7th October; there is an envelope for you to use inside your newsletter, or at the back of the church. 

Family Fast Day Prayer:  Creator God, in love you give life.  In your generosity you create the gifts of the earth.  As daughters and sons of the same Father, may we learn to share the plentiful gifts of creation, especially with those most in need.  Give us open hands and loving hearts, so that we take less and give more.  We ask that all may benefit from your goodness, and share in the fullness of life you have promised.  Amen.

Bishop Patrick informs us that, following a major stroke Fr Colin remains in a very serious condition.  It is expected that he will be in hospital for some considerable time.  

At the explicit request of Fr. Colin’s family, and following advice from medical staff treating his condition, he is NOT permitted any visitors.  Please could all parishioners respect his privacy, while he recovers and keep him in your prayers.

NB:  From this week onward Fr Matthew will celebrate Mass at 9.30am at Our Lady’s, there will be NO Mass  at St Hugh’s on Wednesdays; he will also be celebrating the 7.30pm Friday Mass at Our Lady’s.  If you have already booked a Mass for Wednesday it will be reallocated to another day.  As we now have only two active priests in Lincoln changes to weekly Mass times etc., will be inevitable so keep an eye on your weekly newsletter for these changes.  Thank you for your understanding as we try to adjust to the current situation.
