Mother of God Parish

Just to let you know that Fr Paul Nellikulam has been appointed Parish Priest of Mother of God from 1 June and Fr Joe Pooavathunkal has been appointed chaplain to Syro-Malabar Rite Catholics in Leicestershire. They will both continue to live at Mother of God and support each other in their respective roles.

The appointment of Fr Paul as Parish Priest brings my time as Parish Priest of Mother of God to an end. Over the coming weeks I will take time to reflect on the experience of being Parish Priest of two parishes, and it would be good for parishioners to likewise reflect on the experience of sharing their Parish Priest with another parish. Any feedback will be welcome.  (Fr Eddy)

Clergy Conference

Every year, the priests of the Diocese meet together for an annual conference as part of their Ongoing Formation Programme and this year’s conference will take place this coming week between Tuesday 26 and Thursday 28 May. Fr Eddy will be attending the Conference on a daily basis and will be returning to the presbytery in the evenings, but if you need a priest in an emergency during these days please ring the Priory at Holy Cross on 0116 255 3856. Even if you don’t get an immediate answer leave a message on the answer phone as at least some of the Holy Cross priests will be around.

Parish Pastoral Council

David Casserely, the Chair of our PPC will speak briefly at the end of all the Masses this weekend and introduce any PPC members present at that Mass. He will explain about the suggestions box now available at the back of the church through which parishioners can raise matters for the PPC to consider.
