Parish Meeting last Sunday:
The official Minutes were taken by Curcino. Many thanks to all who participated and to those who would like to have been present but were unable. The financial presentation was delivered in a clear and concise fashion. Thanks to Heather and Michael. Tom Heneghan presented a fascinating quick tour through the history of St Joseph’s since 1869. We wish him well with writing the book. Gretchen, Fabrice and Akuorkor had worked on the future of St Joseph’s, especially the commitment by the Passionists of St Patrick’s Province. Fr James Sweeney, Provincial, gave an update on personnel and some future projections. The small group discussions yielded a wealth of ideas and suggestions for the way forward. These will be processed and the next meeting of the Pastoral Council on 11th March at 7.30 p.m. will have this material on the agenda. Thanks to Josefina for organising some food and to all who helped serve and tidy up afterwards. The date of the next Parish Meeting will be fixed soon and published.
Thanks to Fr Brendan McKeever, C.P. who was with us for some days.
