Fr. Aidan Writes:
This weekend we have our annual Josephite Mission Appeal. Please give as generously as you can. Be assured that the money gets to where it is needed: training our young Josephites for religious life, the priesthood and teaching, and helping run our schools and missions.
It is my joy to announce two new members of the parish team.
Kathy Lester, who you may know from her musical ministry, is our new coordinator of Faith and Family formation. Kathy comes to us with a wealth of educational experience, having recently retired as a local Principal. Kathy is also a lay member of the Brothers and Sisters of Charity founded by John Michael Talbot.
Carmen Garcia is taking on the role of RCIA Coordinator. Carmen also comes with a wealth of experience in education and parish experience.
I will be away from the parish from 27th of October until the 2nd of December. I have to undertake a lot of meetings in England and Belgium, a General Council retreat and session, but also a two week canonical visitation of the Josephite Missions in Gabon. So I will be busy, but will be able to take a lot of pics to show you the great work being done there and how your generous money supports the Josephites in that region.
In my absence, there will of course be Frs. Alfred, Armand and John to serve you all.
Please pray to St Christopher for me to have safe travels.
God bless you and your families
May God bless you, your families, and the week ahead,
Fr Aidan Peter
