Lenten Project 2017 at St Joseph’s:
will support three Catholic Organizations for refugees in Paris. ‘La Foundation Notre Dame’ by which Cardinal Vingt-Trois offers people in Paris the opportunity to support a project of Refugee integration through housing. ‘Foundation Caritas France’ promotes conditions for a dignified life for all, regardless of nationality, history or administrative situation. ‘Order of Malta France’ provides assistance with social and legal integration of refugees in France. A collection will be taken at all five weekend Masses in Lent. Lenten Project donations can also be made through A.D.P. giving a tax refund. There are flyers giving information. Please support the Lenten Project again this year and may we all be blessed through this.

RCIA at St Joseph’s presented 3 Candidates for the Appel Décisif at Notre Dame last Saturday, accompanied by their sponsors. They will celebrate the Sacraments of Initiation at the Easter Vigil, 15 April and will be joined by 3 Candidates being received into ‘Full Communion’ with the Catholic Church from other Denominations in which they were baptised. Finally, there are 3 further Candidates, baptised in the Catholic Church who will receive Confirmation. RCIA preparation began in October 2016 and continues until Easter. Sincere thanks to Joan and Joe who present classes along with me.
