SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS

A very warm welcome to Barbara Jeffreys, and to David her husband, and Josie her sponsor. Barbara will be received into Full Communion with the Catholic Church, and will receive the Sacraments of Confirmation and Holy Communion, in the Vigil Mass this evening at St Joseph's. Barbara has been preparing for this for the past two years. Ordinarily, the celebration would have taken place at The Easter Vigil, but had to be delayed because of the recent Lockdown in response to COVID19.

Father Nigel suggested we start a WhatsApp group for the whole parish so we can keep in contact with one another. Barbara has kindly agreed to set this up. She is contacting everyone she can. If you have not been invited and you don't know her number please let me know by emailing me(Aileen) and I will forward your mobile number to her. (I do not like to advertise her number on the web, and the email address I am giving you is not my family/friends one).
