A book would be needed to thank all who made Christmas 2018 so special at St Joseph’s. After several difficult weekends in the city and in this area, the response of such wonderful numbers of worshippers touched me deeply. Regular faithful parishioners were joined by returning parishioners and a great number of tourists. The kindness of peoples’ words to me personally – unmerited – were signs of the appreciation of people from all over the world for our community at St Joseph’s. All we can do is try even harder to reach out to people and reveal the love and tenderness of Christ.


A truly blessed and Happy New Year to all and those dear to you.


A warm welcome to Fr Eugene McCarthy, C.P. who will be with you during my absence.
