FR PAT WRITES: “It is a great joy to welcome back a growing number of people to Mass on Sundays, and particularly so during the week. We will continue having the extra Mass on Sunday evening for the holiday season and review matters in September. I am delighted that Deacon Peter Lafferty is with us each weekend whilst Fr. Tomasz is on vacation in Poland. Peter together with his wife Shirley are very much at home in St. Hugh and St. John’s and enjoy being with us. I feel blessed with your ongoing support, spiritual and practical, to enable me to continue undertaking my priestly ministry during this time of recovery.

Some of you have been joining the Virtual Shrewsbury Diocesan Pilgrimage to Lourdes for 2020 this past week. The very extensive range of Masses, services and special features which give our Diocesan pilgrimage a unique flavour has been created very skilfully through a gifted use of technology involving many priests and people in our Diocese. You can access it on www.shrewsburylourdes.com .  As we look forward to the 2021 pilgrimage it may encourage people who have never been to consider going.

COVID-19 - As from 8th August 2020 it is mandatory to wear face coverings in churches and places of worship.  People have been adhering to this since the church has reopened, so in practice nothing has changed.  For face-covering exemptions please follow government advice or check with the parish office if you are not sure.
Bishop Mark informs us that almost all our churches have now reopened for the celebration of Mass and wishes to record his gratitude to both clergy and the many many stewards who have made this possible. It would be very beneficial in helping to spread the load if we could have some more. Please contact the Parish Office if you could help in any small way.

SACRAMENT OF RECONCILIATION.  Fr. Pat is available in the area outside his apartment, next to the presbytery, every Saturday from 5.30 - 6.15 pm for confession or a chat. Feel free to contact him on his mobile phone 07711 428970, email  pat.munroe@btinternet to arrange for an alternative time.

Holy Hour- every Wednesday 7-8 pm with an opportunity for adoration in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament and quiet prayer. Those who come find it to be very beneficial, an oasis of peace during these turbulent times.

CORONAVIRUS.  We remember the many victims of Coronavirus.  Special Masses are celebrated by a Bishop every Thursday at 7pm, and Mass is said here for them on Fridays. 

BOOKING FOR MASS. Booking for Sunday Masses opens on Monday each week on the church website, or you can ring the parish office on 0161 973 1694 and ask for a place to be booked for you.  To keep everyone safe, please make use of the hand sanitiser located at the entrance and exit and maintain social distancing especially in the communion queue.

RECENT DEATHS: We received news this week of Audrey Turnbull’s sudden death on Monday 10th August.  Audrey was a parishioner here for many years along with her late husband Tony, and recently lived at Ashlands Manor care home in Sale where Fr Pat stayed for a while.  Alf Carrick’s funeral is planned for Tuesday 18th August at 10.00 am. Please pray for them and for their families. 

OFFERTORY ENVELOPES are available at the back of church again for anyone who hasn’t received theirs.  Your contributions are gratefully received.
