SAD NEWS – we received the sad news on Wednesday that Fr Michael Flemming had died. He had been really poorly during the summer months but was upbeat about making a recovery. We are grateful for his ministry here. He arrived in March 2003 and left in December 2010 to go to Our Lady of Lourdes and St Gregory’s in Farnworth. After that he moved to the Holy Family in Limeside and also looked after Holy Rosary, Oldham. He said recently that he enjoyed his time at St Joseph’s and was sorry to leave. So far, the diocese has not released any details of the funeral arrangements. May he rest in peace.
PARISH LUNCH – once again, just a lovely occasion. Two beautifully prepared Lancashire dishes, followed by apple crumble and trifle and cakes – not to mention the raffle and stand-up bingo! Our gratitude to our cooks and desert makers and bakers, and indeed, to all who came.
