SEVEN RULES OF LIFE:
1] Make peace with your past, so it won’t mess up the present.
2] What others think of you is none of your business.
3] Time heals almost everything, give it time.
4] Don’t compare your life to others and don’t judge them. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
5] Stop thinking too much, it’s alright not to know the answers. They will come to you when you least expect it.
6] No one is in charge of your happiness, except you.
7] Smile. You do not own all the problems in the world.

We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breaths; in feelings not in figures on a dial. We should count time by heart throbs. He most lives who thinks most, feels the noblest, and acts the best.


MOBILE PHONES:
Would you please switch off all mobile phones when you
come into the Church. Recently a mobile rang for a long time
during Communion.
And it is a distraction to all those attempting to pray.


Mass Times:
The Sunday Masses are at 8.30am. and 11.00am..
Recently, an increasing number of people are arriving late for Mass.
Christ said at the Garden of Gethsemane
“So you had not the strength to stay awake with me for one hour?
Stay awake and pray not to be put to the test”. [Matthew 26:40 – 41].

repository please speak to Carol (who is the welcome)
at the ramp door at any Sunday 11.00 mass)


EXPOSITION OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT & PRAYER:
At a recent meeting of the St. Joseph’s Parish Pastoral Council,
a suggestion was made to open the Church and have an hour’s
Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and Prayer.
This will begin on Monday 1st December 2014, from 1.00pm until 2.00pm,
and each Monday after that.
Advent is the beginning of the Church’s year,

and it was thought this was an opportune time to start it
