Fr Eddy

Is away on holiday until Friday 1 May. Fr David will be celebrating the Masses for us this week.  If you need a priest in an emergency please phone Mother of God (287 5232), Blessed Sacrament (285 8795), or Holy Cross (255 3856).

General parish enquiries can be made to the presbytery as usual, but please note Claire will not be in the Parish Office on Monday or Tuesday this week.



This year’s outing will be a cruise on the River Trent at Nottingham, which will include lunch.  We will leave St Peter’s at 10.15am and Mother of God at 10.25am.  We will be boarding the boat at approximately 11.30am with lunch being served from 12 noon onwards.  We will return at approximately 4.00pm.

In order to preserve the funds of the Francis Caus Charity, this year we will be asking each participant to make a donation of £10, ie approximately 50% of the cost of the outing.

If you wish to join the trip, please sign the list of names which is displayed on the main notice-board.

If you require any further details, please contact Ian Knight via the presbytery.

Changes at St Patrick’s Parish

As many of you will know, Fr Jimmy Browne is leaving St Patrick’s and returning to Ireland in the coming days. Many in our community will have their own particular memories of Fr Jimmy and their own reasons to be thankful for his ministry in Leicester over the past 15 years. We wish him well for the future.

We extend a welcome to Fr Martin Hardy who will succeed Fr Jimmy at St Patrick’s and hopefully we will get to know him over the coming weeks and months.
