Parish Befrienders - Thank You
Parish Befrienders – Thank You

On behalf of the Parish Befrienders a big ‘Thank you’ to everyone who generously gave of themselves to ensure all our guests were able to enjoy the tea party last Sunday. We are grateful to those who responded to the request for refreshments and to those who gave lifts and also for the support of members of the Legion of Mary and Catenian Association.

Special thanks to the Alzheimers Association for the use of their premises and making us so welcome. Finally thanks to all the entertainers who brought the party atmosphere alive, the Irish dancers, Susie who played the accordion so beautifully and Amelia whose song about ‘Blessings’ set the tone for the afternoon.

Charity Work

Nigel & Geraldine Higgs  leave on Tuesday for just over 5 weeks volunteering in the Parish of Sitima near Zomba in Malawi. Recruited by an Irish charity based in Dublin called Voluntary Missionary Movement (VMM). While in Malawi they will be working with another charity called Network for a better world ( N4BW)

Fr Owen O’Donnell has been in Malawi for 34 years, 11 of them serving in Sitima Parish. He has raised the funds to build 2 schools in the parish and is now focusing on building a clinic too, so improving the lives of the people of this area. Ninety percent of the population survive on subsistence farming. Nigel will be working on the growing side of things, and Geraldine will be teaching in the secondary school.

We wish them both well and a safe journey.

Discover Daily Examen – 25th Feb – 7:00pm – St Josephs Parish Room

Are you planning on doing anything for Lent this year?

If so have you decided what to do?

Is your Lenten sacrifice always something you stop doing? Have you considered something you start doing?

Perhaps you undertake the same sacrifice each year and are now looking for a change or an addition.

Deacon Mark invites you to the Parish Room on Monday 25th February at 7:00pm to discover the Daily Examen.

How we can set aside just 15 minutes each day during Lent to prayerfully reflect on the events of our day and detect Gods presence within it and discern his direction for us.

All are very welcome do consider coming along
