As this meeting will last one hour, we need to plan for a General Parish Meeting to look at long-term issues: preparations for 150th Anniversary of founding of St Joseph’s taking place in 2019; ways of improving the ‘street grille’ and with the offices above us, upgrade the security of building; a Church financial statement and funding works at St Joseph’s Church; the effects of the reduction of Passionists at St Joseph’s; ongoing spiritual and missionary life of St Joseph’s. Others will want to present other items at this meeting.

Bulletin Notices 8 Oct 2017

Parish Pastoral Council: will meet again on Monday, 16th October at 8 p.m. It is hoped to have at least one representative of each Ministry present so that our sharing and planning may address any needs arising. A review of the Parish Information Day will be made. Also, we will need to address the Music Ministry as Marc-Frédéric leaves St Joseph’s next month. The Carol Service and CCD Pageant will also be discussed to see what help can be offered to those who do such a great work on this each year. The planning for 150th Anniversary of the foundation of St Joseph’s in 1869 will also need attention. 2019 won’t be long coming around! An update on the replacement of the windows on the community floor and the possible installation of a new motor for the street grid will also be considered. Each Ministry is a gift from God for His people. That is why the Pastoral Council takes time to pray and to consider where the Spirit may be leading us. Any parishioner or internet reader, can suggest how we might better live out our calling to be the ‘Church’ today. (cf. the reflection this week.)


Marc-Frédéric on 12th Nov after 12.30 p.m. Mass, will offer a music recital for about 20 minutes. As many as possible are invited to be present to pay tribute to him. Interviews will be held shortly to seek a successor.

Bulletin Notices 1 Oct 2017

Parish Information: last weekend was utterly special. Information Weekend/Parish Social brought great joy to many hearts, with generous giving of time, talent, food, humour, friendship and all that is of God. We were also blessed with sunshine. Some came forward and enlisted for various ministries. Parents of First Communion and Confirmation CCD young people met with the leaders of these classes. I sat in for a few moments at both meetings. It was wonderful to see the church of the laity in action. The reduction in the number of priests at St Joseph’s hasn’t hindered access to the Gospel and its message. To one and all, I can only look on in total admiration and know that God blesses us. For what it may be worth, I add my sincere thanks to all.


Marc-Frédéric Indorf will be leaving St Joseph’s as Organist and Leader in Music. He began in 2007. We will greatly miss him. On 12th November after 12.30 p.m. Mass, he will offer a music recital for about 20 minutes. As many as possible are asked to be present to pay tribute to Marc.
