Father Hughs Message

Dear Friends in Christ,

This Sunday's gospel has the choice of Peter as the rock upon which Christ will build His church. The Church, the living breathing Body of Christ, is founded by Christ, built upon the rock of Peter and is a living community, a home for saints (like you) and sinners (like me). Pray today for Pope Francis, the Vicar of Christ & successor of St Peter. Long may he guide and lead us.

Please pray for two good and holy priests who died this week. Fr Andrew Hurley whom you may know was Parish Priest of Ongar and had been battling illness for a long time. He died on Tuesday 19th. Also, please pray for a good friend of mine who died on the same day, Fr Stewart Ansbro, who was Parish Priest of St Willibrord's, Clayton, Manchester. He was my Spiritual Director and Confessor for the first 6 years of my priesthood, so he really formed me as priest. He was a good, kind and gentle soul. He too had been fighting ill health for many years. He was paralysed down one side of his body, yet carried on as the priest for his people. Both men are great examples of dedication and love. Pray for them both - they are priest's forever and now they see face to face the eternal High Priest, Jesus Christ. May they rest in peace. Amen.

This week we have the simple profession of vows of Br Gregory Davies. Br Gregory has been with us since June 2013 and now he takes his next step in formation by making his first profession of vows. Please come to Mass on August 28th at 7.30pm to support him and pray for him. He is an excellent confrere and we are truly blessed to have him in Chelmsford.

The next day, the Norbertine clan is scattering for a week. Br Gregory is going on holiday with his parents, Br James is off to see his family and Br Stephen, Br Pius and I are going to Scotland for a week to see my family and visit some old Norbertine abbeys. We might just sway the referendum as well - which way, I'm not so sure….. Please look after Fr Cadoc and Fr John until we get back.

God love you

With every blessing, Fr Hugh
