Next Pastoral Council Meeting, on 15 Apr. Date of the Third Laity/Passionist Conversation will be on Sunday, 12th May at 1.30 p.m. in the Hall. A Passionist community of St Patrick’s Province was the case here until 2008. A letter from Pastoral Council has been sent to the Provincial in Dublin requesting action on restoring this. The speculation by some as to why other Passionists have not come to St Joseph’s, can be examined by Pastoral Council. Our mission remains to spread the Kingdom of God.

Parish Pastoral Council Meeting, on Monday 11 March: 17 of us sat down to see in what ways we could serve St Joseph’s better in order that the glory of God shine forth even brighter. From Parish Meeting of 17th Feb, we had a lot of very valuable material that arose from the discussion groups on that day. Date of the Third Laity/Passionist Conversation will be on Sunday, 12th May at 1.30 p.m. in the Hall. Please put that date in your diary. There is still no news of another Passionist coming to St Joseph’s. While we have wonderful priests who come to offer Mass, I believe that a Passionist community with and for our parish is a blessing.

Lenten Project launched last weekend was discussed and ways of creating more and better awareness. Ministries, celebrations of Sacraments got some attention and more will be given at the next Pastoral Council meeting.  Mardi Gras raised a magnificent €2,015 for St Joseph’s. Thanks to Josefina and all who did so much for a great evening. An estimate is awaited for restoration of the pyramid in the garden. As we celebrate our 150th Anniversary, we await answers to major questions, not all in our hands. Prayer that we take the right road was never more needed.

Parish Pastoral Council Meeting, on Monday 11 Mar at 7.30 p.m.:

Many reflections from Parish Meeting on 17 Feb will be on our agenda. Date of the Third Laity/Passionist Conversation will be settled, and the agenda outlined. Future Passionist community from Saint Patrick’s Province assigned here will also be reviewed. Lenten Project launched this weekend will be discussed and ways of creating more and better awareness. Ministries, celebrations of Sacraments will get our attention. For a one-hour meeting, we will not be short of material. Each Ministry is asked to have at least a member present so that the Pastoral Council can address what needs attention and rejoice at the blessings of these ministries. As we celebrate our 150th Anniversary here, we are at a crossroads with major decisions, not all in our hands, awaited. Prayer to take the right road was never more needed.
