The One Parish Mass – on Sunday 30 June 2019 – will be an opportunity to celebrate our Parish and give thanks for our shared journey.
As we approach Peace Sunday (20 January), with its theme of “good politics serves peace”, we remember the Message of the Holy Father Francis, written ahead of the celebration of the 52nd World Day of Peace.
The latest meeting of the Parish Pastoral Council discussed the church development, Eucharistic Congress and this year’s International One Parish Mass, among other topics.
SS Joseph & Swithun parish is taking up Pope Francis’s call in Laudato Si’ to better protect the world by focusing our attention on living sustainably with creation and in solidarity with people in poverty – working towards official recognition for the community.
