Thank You

To everybody who took part in our Holy Week and Easter celebrations. The Easter Triduum (Maundy Thursday evening, Good Friday afternoon and the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday) was a fitting commemoration and celebration of the most solemn days of the Church’s year.

Thanks to our altar servers, musicians, readers etc. who put in a lot of work to prepare for these liturgies. Other events were special too, it was nice to revive the tradition of a Good Friday service for children and the ‘blessing of Easter food’ on Holy Saturday was well supported not only by our Polish parishioners, but also by some of our locally born parishioners too.

Finally we had two very joyful and well attended Masses on Easter Sunday morning. Thanks again to all concerned.

Ministry Rotas

The current rotas for readers and collection counters expire at the end of May. We are always looking for new people to volunteer their services.

We particularly need additional readers at the 6.30pm and 8.45am weekend Masses. If you wish to go on the rota please let Fr Eddy or Marian Goodrich know. If you can’t make a particular Mass to which you are allocated you can arrange a swap with another reader from the same Mass.

If you wish to learn more about what is involved with helping to count the collection (usually on a Sunday morning) then please speak with Fr Eddy.

Fr Eddy

Is away on holiday until Friday 1 May. During his absence Masses will be celebrated this week by Frs Paul and Joe from Mother of God and from next weekend onwards by Fr David. If you need a priest in an emergency please phone Mother of God (287 5232), Blessed Sacrament (285 8795), or Holy Cross (255 3856) Routine phone calls to the presbytery will be responded to as appropriate. 

New Website

As you will see if you are reading this, our parish web-site has undergone major changes and now has a new address www.stpetersleicester.org.uk.

Thanks to Marina Sigona of www.marinasweb.co.uk who has built it for us. Why not take a look around and see what you think?

For the web-site to continue to develop we need the active input of our parishioners. If you wish to contribute please speak to Ian Goodrich or Fr Eddy. The old address will automatically divert you to the new site.

Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament

Please note that this will re-start on 30 April.
