Nottingham St George – Priest-in-Charge
St George’s is a parish which stands in the Catholic tradition of the Church of England, which has passed a resolution in accordance with the House of Bishops’ Declaration on the Ministry of Bishops and Priests, requesting alternative Episcopal, sacramental and pastoral care. The Bishop of Southwell and Nottingham has invited the Bishop of Beverley, who is also an Assistant Bishop in the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham to provide this care. St George’s is affiliated to The Society of St Wilfrid and St Hilda. For many years the parish was served by Kelham Fathers and Brothers, and more recently by SSC priests.
The parish is situated in The Meadows, an inner city area of Nottingham near the River Trent and close to the centre of the City.
This new full time appointment recognises the many opportunities for growth in our diverse multi-cultural community with a strikingly young population, 61% at the last census being aged between 15 and 44, with 88% under 60.
We are seeking and praying for a missional Priest and Leader who will:

Canon Stuart Ramsden RIP28/1/2018
With sadness we announce that Canon Stuart Ramsden SSC died fortified by the Sacraments of the Church on 28 January 2018 in Barnsley Hospital.
The Bishop Of Wakefield said, "Fr Stuart Ramsden was a much loved and faithful priest. He was well known and appreciated in the Wakefield and Barnsley area. For the past few months Stuart has struggled with his health. We pray for his soul now that he is at rest. May Christ welcome him to paradise! May he rest in peace."
Jesu Mercy, Our Lady of Walsingham pray.
Once the funeral arrangements have been made they will be announced here.http://sswshwestyorkshiredales.weebly.com/news/canon-stuart-ramsden-rip
The Shrine's has offered to include a catered offer so that Parishes that are new to camping would need to bring much less equipment and face a much lesser logistical challenge. This lowers the barrier considerably and should really encourage and challenge the brethren to bring their young people to the Youth Pilgrimage.
The Priest Administrator needs to know likely numbers taking up the catering offer so that the Shrine may decide if it is viable or not. Brethren need to email the Priest Administrator directly by 5th February, so time is of the essence.

Of your charity, please pray for the repose of the soul of David William Lawson, priest, sometime Vicar of S.John the Baptist, Leamington Spa and former Treasurer of SSC, who died suddenly yesterday. Jesu mercy, OLW pray.
NORTHERN VOCATIONS CONFERENCE
In the next 10 years 40% of the existing clergy will have retired!! This presents us with a huge challenge in terms of the resourcing the future ministry of our Church. As Catholics we are part of that statistic and
perhaps more than any other group we need to work hard at identifying and encouraging priestly vocations.
To this end we have arranged with the Additional Curates Society a Northern Vocations Conference to be held Hinsley Hall in Leeds from Friday 2nd March to Sunday 4th March. Participants are invited to make a contribution of £100, but grants are available from the ACS as we would not want costs to deter anyone from attending.
This is a personal appeal for you to look around your congregation and to see if there is anybody who might be considering ordination. We need to encourage them and hopefully this conference will be an important step on their pilgrimage to priesthood.
Please would you prayerfully consider this appeal, give the conference publicity by not only using the posters that we enclose but also add the event to your news sheet and pray regularly for more vocations. By far the best way to encourage someone to attend is by a personal approach. Please do not be afraid to challenge somebody with the suggestion of ordination, they might be waiting for you to say this.
Hopefully we can make this an annual event which will help boost the very worrying lack of vocations in the Northern Province, but it really is all up to you to discern, equip and encourage those whom God has already called.
Further posters and booking forms can be gained from the Additional Curates Society or from looking on the ACS website.
