BENEDICTION TODAY at 3pm. During this time of prayer before the Blessed Sacrament perhaps we can remember especially those whose jobs are in the balance at this time and their families. LIVE SIMPLY: This weekend in the liturgy there will be a focus on this theme and also Harvest Fast Day. Please take an envelope, and a leaflet about the parish Live Simply challenge working in conjunction with CAFOD. Please return the Fast Day envelopes at Mass next weekend and fill in the pledge sheet about any actions you can make a commitment to so as to live more simply, sustainably, and in solidarity with people in poverty. Please return the pledges next weekend so they can be anonymised and put together to show just how small individual actions, when joined with those of others, can bring about change and be of real benefit. We can be a true beacon of hope here in St Joseph's! Also TODAY theres an opportunity to join the Diocesan Celebrating Creation bird watching walk from the RSPB centre Fairhaven Lake at 12.30pm. OCTOBER is the month of the Holy Rosary. The Rosary will be said after the 9am Mass on Mon, Wed, Thu & Fri and before the evening Mass on Tues. All welcome CHILDRENS LITURGY at the 9.30 Mass: This is so much appreciated by the children and their parents, but we desperately need new members for the rota as four adults are no longer able to do this work.
