Parish Notices for the 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time

  1. Preparation for First Communion and Confirmation has resumed. We would like to pray for our catechists and young friends who participate in these programmes. This year, there are many children participating in these classes. As such, we need more catechists.  So those who were recently confirmed and would like to assist as catechists by making the meetings more attractive and reaching every child individually. If you are interested in please contact Father or Deacon Jeffrey.
  2. We would like to remind you about our need for the psychologists who would join our counselling programme. This is much needed service and so we need more people to assist in this important programme.
  3. During our Pastoral Council meeting we discussed another way in which we can serve our society here in St. Joseph. We would like to organize legal aid assistance. So we are inviting the lawyers of our community if they would like to help us, by giving advice and help in the field of law.
  4. Our brothers & sisters from St. Saviour Anglican have organized another charity programme – medical help. They are looking for the help of nurses and doctors. We would like to recommend this way of service and building better ecumenical relationships. Please contact Father if you would like to know more.
  5. Remembering our loved ones! A reminder about our November tradition of Masses for our deceased brothers and sisters, Longing for the day once again when we will be together.  We shall pray for and with them for the mercy of God to be with all of us. The best thing we can do is to offer the mass. Envelopes for the November masses for Dead can be collected on the ‘catholic news’ stand.
  6. We have received our new baptism font. We are trying to make our church more beautiful. Little by little, we are trying to restore the interior of our church. So if you have any old photographs of the church, particularly the interior of the church, we would like to borrow it, so that we may put everything back to its original place. 
Blessings to ALL our parishioners this week!
