SUNDAY WALK – our walk takes place next Sunday, leaving the church at 2pm. As the sea parted for the Israelites, we are confident that the clouds will be parted for St. Josephs’ walkers! All welcome including cats and dogs and goats- but not sheep.

PARISH LUNCH – takes place on Thursday 19th July, after 12 noon Mass. All welcome – including those who worship here from far and wide – and the list is in the porch. LATELY DEAD – Iris Thompson (nee Bezer)

ANNIVERSARIES – Felix Barber – Birthday Anniversary.


LIVING FAITH BOOKLET – just a few left – quite lovely to see one lady purchasing 10 copies to give to her friends.

WILLOW WOOD HOSPICE – Margaret Buckley is taking part in the Midnight Walk for the Hospice – list for sponsors is on the notice board.

UNFORGETTABLE – sings or sang the crooner, but Friday’s deluge was eminently forgettable, leaving Mossley looking bedraggled, folorn and soggy.

Hopefully no ones property was flooded. Perphaps we shall have to preface our Bidding Prayers with a sort of aide-memoire to the Almighty, saying ‘It might have escaped your attention, dear Lord, that the inhabitants of Mossley are getting drenched daily, if not hourly, and we wondered if you could address the situation.’ However, there is the possibility that we might end up with a drought, so we might be better falling in love with the rain instead! School holidays are on the horizon, so fingers crossed. Mystic Meg has been attracting the punters in the area recently – not sure whether the tea leaves or calls into the void revealed anything.

MAYOR’S CIVIC SERVICE- the Civic Service for the new Mayor and Mayoress of Mossley will take place here on Sunday 22nd July, at 2.30pm.

INTERESTING – St. Therese of Lisieux said that if we picked up a pin lovingly we could save a soul from damnation. Let’s start now!
