Reception area was painted last week by a parishioner who supplied the paint and the helpers, as a donation to St Joseph’s.
Being on my own, I could not justify St Joseph’s employing a cook for just one person. This change has been done according to regulations. Appreciation to our cook/housekeeper for her years of service at St Joseph’s
For those who can get away on holidays, my prayers and best wishes. Giving to St Joseph’s by your time and service is greatly appreciated and also your outstanding financial support.
