St Joseph’s Info Day
It is a long time since I have enjoyed and seen so much joy and happiness as last Sunday at the Information Day. The work of dedicated parishioners to set up, provide food (in abundance), ministries welcoming enquiries; and then leaving the garden and all of St Jospeh’s in perfect state.
It is such a privilege for the Passionists to serve you here. Please God that this was the first of other such gatherings. Dry weather lasted until the early afternoon – thank you, Lord.

Reflection(Fr Pat CP)

It was almost like old times last Sunday! It was wonderful after the various masses to see so many people on the Parvis and in the garden - “almost” being a key word, since every effort was being made to keep people as safe as possible by observing social distancing and mask-wearing. As usual there were lots of goodies available – mostly of the edible kind – but clearly the renewing of acquaintances was a key ingredient for many present. All the modern technology, while greatly appreciated, is no substitute for meeting people in person, and while people were unable to share bisous, or even hand-shakes, there was plenty of elbow contact. (Interesting how language changes – to give someone the elbow previously meant to avoid or get rid of them, whereas now it is a way of greeting!)

But the day also had its more practical purposes, in that it was an opportunity to share information about the parish, particularly for the benefit of those who have recently come to Paris or have recently ‘discovered’ St. Joseph’s. One can only be grateful and appreciative of the many people who gave of their time to be present at the various masses to share information and answer questions about the various ministries that go to making up a very inclusive and participative parish community. Not surprisingly the most common question I was asked was “where is the first Communion stall?” or some such. Even though it was one of the most up-front stalls, it was generally not visible because of the crowds around it. It was a reminder, if one ever needed one, of how important it still is to prepare our young folk for fuller participation in the mystery of the Eucharist.

That was not necessarily what Jesus had explicitly in mind in the Gospel reading of today’s mass, when He invites us to “let the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the Kingdom of God belongs.” But it is very much in the same spirit, reminding us of our call to pass on the faith to future generations, and particularly in this instance reminding us of the wonderful gifts that the Lord has given us through the sacraments to inspire and strengthen us in our daily efforts to respond to his love for us through our love for one another. As so many of our young people set out on a program of preparation for receiving the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist, we pray that they may learn as much from our good example as they do from the books and the catechists who will be supporting them along the way.
