Parish Information Day Reflection
Sincere thanks for your great support of last Sunday’s Information Day. Even the rain did not dampen your spirit. The food was delicious and enjoyed by many. Thanks to those who take many hours to prepare and cook the food voluntarily. Then it is served with joy. My regret was that I was not able to sample all that was on offer. Setting up was done on Saturday morning with great efficiency. Because of the rain we will have to wait until all is dried out before they can be put away to prepare for events in 2020!
Some people answered the call of the Lord to share in one or other of the many ministries at St Joseph’s. If you signed up and have not heard from us, please send an email and you will be contacted by return.
The scope and diversity of ministries at St Joseph’s are signs of your goodness and the blessings that God showers on this community. If all depended on one priest, we could not continue. You give me new heart and keep hope alive. May God bless you and reward you. From me the best I can do is to promise that I will pray every day for everyone who is with us at St Joseph’s, avenue Hoche. In our 150th Anniversary year, I’m privileged to be the Passionist whom God has placed in your midst.
A listing of Ministries is on the Information Sheet (green leaflet).
