On Palm Sunday,
Mgr. Hughes issued a short message
to everyone in the Parish community.
The Message can be read

This message has been
delivered to all our elderly and housebound parishioners.
Mgr. Hughes will celebrate Mass privately each day
and you will be remembered in these Masses.
The Bishops' Conference has issued a little booklet which offers some prayers for use at a time when we cannot be in a Church building or access the Sacraments. Click on the Button.
We wish to assure parishioners - who have to stay at home for health reasons, or who are self-isolating due to the Corona Virus, and have no family, neighbours, or friends to provide support - that they can access our pastoral resources in the parish. For this crisis, the Pastoral Care Group and the St. Vincent de Paul Society and Parish Volunteers have combined their energies to try to meet any gap in provision of food items, collection of essential medicines and to maintain contact by telephone. If any parishioner would like support, please phone 07954 163267. This is the contact number for SVDP. They will deal with and direct your request appropriately.
Anyone who feels able to help in this ministry of volunteering to help 'at risk' groups can also phone this number to register their interest. This will be greatly appreciated.
We have a remarkably caring parish community! St. Joseph has inspired us with a spirit of sensitive practical care for Christ in one another. We can rightly celebrate the God-given charism. St. Joseph, our Patron, will lead us as he led Mary and the Child Jesus through these "deserts rough and wild".
We regret to announce the recent deaths of
Fr. Dominic Doogan and Frances Wilson (Friel)
Our prayerful sympathies are with her family and friends.
May she rest in peace with the Lord.
