Christmas and New Year Masses were a time of worship and of immense joy as we welcomed Jesus and let Him lead us into another Year of Our Lord. In difficult travel times, your presence here was a witness to your faith. The Music at all the Masses was superb, Santa paid a visit, coffee & mulled wine were served, and the beautiful Crib provided a wonderful reminder of God. So much love and service, seen and unseen, gave St Joseph’s a time in which we could thank God anew for the past 150 years. Now we enter into the celebration of the 300th Anniversary of the foundation of the Passionist Congregation. From CCD we await with anticipation the joy of your children receiving Jesus in Holy Communion and the Holy Spirit in Confirmation. May God accept our humble thanks for the great graces and blessings that will come our way throughout the coming year together.
