This is World Day of Prayer for the Missions. The second collection next week will be for the work of the propagation of the faith. In his Message for today, Pope Francis writes, “Let us draw inspiration from Mary, Mother of Evangelisation. Moved by the Spirit, she welcomed the Word of life in the depths of her humble faith. May the Virgin Mother help us to say our own ‘yes,’ conscious of the urgent need to make the Good News of Jesus resound in our time. May she obtain for us renewed zeal in bringing to everyone the Good News of the life that is victorious over death. May she intercede for us so that we can acquire the holy audacity needed to discover new ways to bring the gift of salvation to every man and woman.”

 

Change of Mass Times:  As announced last week, Mass times here in St Joseph’s will change from the weekend of 4th/5th November. There will be a Vigil Mass at 5.00pm and Sunday morning Mass will be at 10.00am. Thank you to those who co-ordinate the various ministries in the parish – I appreciate this means changing your rotas.

 

Thank you for welcoming me so warmly to the parish last weekend. I look forward to getting to know you and working with you and for you in the weeks, months and (hopefully) years ahead. I am better at remembering faces than I am at remembering names, so please bear with me.

 

We remember in prayer all who are sick or housebound at this time

and those who have asked for our prayers.

 

Hope you have a great week. God bless you and yours. Don’t forget to put your clocks back next weekend.

                                                                                                                               Fr James
