Thank You for your great response to the appeal last week by the Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Conception, which raised £1310.


Preparation for the Sacraments will begin shortly after Christmas. At the moment I would like to identify who the candidates are, and so would ask parents of any eligible children to contact me so that I can get some details. First Confession is normally celebrated for children in Primary 3 and Holy Communion for children in Primary 4.


The St Joseph`s Children`s Christmas Party will take place in the Church Hall on Saturday 16th December from 2-4pm. Please sign your child`s name on the list in the church porch after Mass if your child would like to come along. We would be grateful if parents could also choose a party food that they could bring along. . For further information please don`t hesitate to contact Clare Morrison on 01592 873840 /07732118386. We look forward to seeing the children there!
