JOIN Us to celebrate deacon Mark’s ordination

Deacon Mark will be ordained into the Priesthood on Saturday 1st October at 11.30am at St. George’s Cathedral, Southwark. 

There is plenty of room in the Cathedral, so all are welcome to attend. The Mass will be followed by a Reception. 

Deacon Mark will celebrate Mass for the first time at St. Joseph’s at 11am on Sunday 2nd October, followed by a “bring and share” reception in the church hall. Parishioners are invited to bring a dish to share. A sign-up sheet is available in the foyer of the church for you to write down what you will bring. As we do not have the facilities to cook food at the church, all food should be ready to be placed straight on the serving tables. 

Volunteers are needed to help out at the Bring & Share Lunch. Please inform the parish office if you are able to assist.

Please keep Deacon Mark in your prayers as he prepares for his ordination. 

“It takes a parish to raise a priest so I am relying on you all,” he says. 

If you would like to give Deacon Mark a donation to celebrate his ordination, please use the donation envelopes at the entrance and exit to the church, and return these to the parish office.
