Newsletter – 28th October 2012

ST. JOSEPH’S, MOSSLEY- 27/28 October, 2012 – www.stjosephmossley

200 CLUB – £25 E O’Neil; £15 B Hayes; £10 J Edge

BAPTISMS – Ava Rose Martin and Sofia Elizabeth Barrientos – Lowry

ANNIVERSARIES – Dorothy O’Neil (birthday anniversary).

GOLDEN WEDDING – congratulations to Ronnie and Bertha Hill who celebrated their Golden Wedding last weekend.

MASS TIMES THIS WEEK – each day at 10am. On Thursday there will be an Evening Mass at 7pm since it is ALL SAINTS; Friday is ALL SOULS.

All Saints is a Holy Day, but if you are working or it is not easy to attend, do say a little prayer thanking God for the courage and inspiration of the saints.


CONFESSIONS – Saturdays at 10.30am and 6.10pm.

JUST MENTIONING – that Sunday Mass is now at 10am

PARISH LUNCH – a culinary feast was served by our internationally renowned chefs; palate tickling dishes were whizzing out of the kitchen, much to the delight of the assembled guests. A continental menu was eschewed in favour of traditional Lancashire ( with a hint of Cheshire!) Fare. Our gratitude to all. A Christmas buffet with carols is being organised.

CHOCOLATES – would be gratefully received by Bernadette for the tombola, and can be given to her directly or left at church.

CHRISTMAS FAIR (17TH NOV) – items can be left in the church and presbytery porch. If anyone has a flair for doing posters that would be a big help.

NOVEMBER – as last year, we will leave a book in the sanctuary, in which we can enter the names of the deceased we would liked to be prayed for and remembered at each Mass during the month of November.

LION KING THEATRE OUTING -can be paid for – £44 inc transport.

AN EVENING ON NANO NAGLE – Foundress of the Presentation Sisters.

Wednesday 7th November at St Ann’s Hall, Ashton old Road.

MEDITATION – 7.30-8.30pm in the presbytery. All welcome

HALF-TERM – has arrived and the children were in good voice when they came to Mass on Friday. Let’s hope that the weather will be in a festive mood.

The old Saxon name for November was Wind-monath, when the fishermen drew their boats ashore and stopped fishing until Spring arrived. The leaves are beginning to pile up, yellow, brown, lemon, russet, in colour; and the pumpkins on sale in the shops look absolutely gorgeous – anyone for pumpkin pie? When November begins we wonder what sort of a winter it is going to be – at Asda the snow shovels are flying off the shelves! The last remaining martins and swallows will leave over the next few weeks. Happy half-term to all.
