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
