Fr John Away

Please note that Fr John is now away from the parish until the evening of Friday 4 August, taking his main annual holiday and spending a week on retreat.

Fr Brian and Fr Anthony will cover the daily Masses during that time, but please note that they will not be able to deal with general parish enquiries, which should be referred to the parish office, preferably by Email.   Please be aware that if you leave a message on the parish answer-phone, it may not be picked up for a couple of days.

What to do if you need a priest in an emergency....    For an urgent home visit – Mother of God 0116 287 5232 or Blessed Sacrament 0116 285 8795.

If you require a visit to a patient in one of the hospitals or LOROS, please speak with the ward staff or the hospital chaplaincy.



Please Pray For

The repose of the soul of Brendan Marrinan who died this week.  His funeral will take place at Mother of God Church and the arrangements are as follows... Thursday 27 July at 7.00pm Reception into Church.  Funeral Mass 11.00am on Friday 28 July.  May he rest in peace.

A ‘Thank You’ from Fr John

Many thanks to everyone who gave me cards, gifts and personal good wishes on the occasion of my 25th Anniversary of Ordination.  It is very much appreciated.  

Annual Parish BBQ

Thanks again to everyone who came along and supported this event.  As well as enjoying a great social evening, we also raised £324 for the Retired Priest Appeal. 

Kasper Schmeichel Gloves

Many congratulations to our winner Marie Hall, now the proud owner of the gloves!  Thanks to everyone who took part and had a go, raising a further £122 for the Retired Priest Appeal.

Raffaela Groppi RIP

Raffaela’s family wish to thank all those parishioners and friends who came to the funeral and supported them with their prayers at this time.

Assistance Needed

A young family is under the pastoral care of the Dominicans at Leicester Royal Infirmary. Their little baby, Nashvel Gonsalves, was born six months prematurely and is a patient in the CICU unit. He has a severe problem with his heart and vascular system and was not expected to live. Miraculously he has.

However, he needs to have treatment, which appears to be beyond the capabilities of the medics in the UK. It has been suggested that the only way forward is to seek a second opinion and possible treatment abroad.

The family concerned have no other family in the UK, and are not in a financial position to pay for these costs for themselves. They are a devout Catholic family and have sought the help of the Church. Fr David Rocks, O.P. is currently locating possible sources of financial assistance, in order to raise the funds needed. If anyone is in a position to contribute in any small way towards these costs, Fr David Rocks, O.P., would be very grateful to hear from you. Please make contact with him either by telephoning Holy Cross Priory: 0116 255 3856  or by email on: david.rocks@english.op.org

Not everyone will be able to assist in a financial way, so the Bishop has asked that we might still offer our support through our prayers.
