PARISH MAGAZINE – MESSAGE FROM THE EDITOR – ‘the next edition of the Josephian will be the end of January; we would like some anecdotes about the Christmas and New Year’s Days you remember from the past, and also, the best presents you received and the biggest surprise you had on Christmas Day. Did you ever have a disaster cooking or have a power cut or were you snowed in? Please share it in the magazine. We are also looking for recipes, book reviews, interesting places to visit, funny stories, lost and found, give aways and adverts. The list is endless, so please, get involved.’
PIETY STALL – lots of cards and calendars and gifts available.
ADVENT – arrives without fanfare today – with an invitation to be still and quiet, and to ponder the beautiful coming of the Lord into our lives. We welcome him who comes to heal and bless us and to anoint us with his Spirit.
