THE JOSEPHIAN – PARISH MAGAZINE – is available today. Our gratitude to Jenny, our editor, for her labours in producing an excellent magazine; and to our contributors. There are a thousand stories ‘out there’; hopefully, one or two will find their way into the next edition.

OLDHAM COLISEUM – ‘BRASSED OFF’ – features the best brass bands from Oldham and the local area. The play is based on a true story – a funny and life-affirming tale of community spirit in the face of adversity. Music includes – William Tell, Death and Glory, Danny Boy, Land of Hope and Glory. There is a list in the porch – it is on from 7th September till 1st October
ORDINATIONS – Michael Deas and Richard Howard are being ordained to the priesthood at Salford Cathedral this weekend.

ODD JOBS DONE THIS PAST WEEK – new lighting in the porch; iron gate taken away for repairs; a leak in the church kitchen attended to.
NEXT SUNDAY – ACCESS THE MOORS – a very strenuous ten mile walk across open moorland to Alphin Pike with Paul Nethercott – 10am at Castle Clough car park, Bucton Vale Road, Carbrook. Six and a half hours.
HOLIDAYS ARE LOOMING – parishioners will be looking forward to a break – whether at home or away – as we move toward the end of the month. It may even be hotting up! I suspect that the wimberry will be later this year.
STOLEN FROM IRELAND’S OWN – thought it really funny- Michael: ‘My wife says she’s leaving me because I think more of football than of her.’ Friend: ‘That’s sad. How long have you been together?’ Michael:’Oh, for about fifteen seasons.’!
CARITAS REPRESENTATIVE – the bishops is anxious that every parish has a Caritas representative to pass on information about what the charities are doing in the diocese – do mention it if you think you can help.
NOT FOR SWATTING – St Colman was friendly with a fly, which would help him keep his place in his holy book.
