4 Mikes on Bikes


You may recall that before we embarked on our cycle trip to Rome on the Via Francigene Pilgrimage I asked for your support, best wishes and to keep us in your thoughts. We received this in abundance before, during and since our return and every one of us has been greatly touched.

For anyone who wished to support us financially, we asked for donations to the London and Slough Run. I know from my time at St Joseph’s I should never be surprised by the levels of your generosity but it was truly wonderful to announce at the Parish AGM last week that you have raised the amazing sum of £8,421. It is in giving that we receive and I wish that you all receive the blessings you deserve.

THE ST VINCENT DE PAUL SOCIETY CARES: Volunteers, motivated by their faith, befriend the lonely, visit the sick, feed the hungry and offer practical help to all in need.

Lord, help me to make time today to serve you in those who are most in need of encouragement or assistance.”
St Vincent de Paul

Stop and think about those who are lonely, suffer from food poverty, can’t afford the basics or are sick at home or in hospital. Show you care. Turn your concern into action and join the SVP. Our group here in St Joseph’s needs new members to carry out its work. To find out more contact the Parish Office.

Just do it. Make time for it. We can all make a bit of time. It might mean less telly watching. But we will meet people who will pull us through.

Parish News & Updates

a message from Fr Michael...

As the car park is now fully functioning can you please observe the original entrance (via Austenwood Common) and exit (via Priory Road) signs. We would like to remind all parishioners NOT TO USE THE PRIORY SIDE OF THE CHURCH as a car park. This area must be kept clear for access in and out of the Priory and Parish Office. It must also be kept clear to allow access for emergency vehicles.

As can be expected in a Parish as large and diverse as ours, there is always something going on and, much as we would like to let every parishioner know all that is happening, it has often been impossible for us to do so. However now, with our very good web site and newsletter at our disposal we will do our very best to keep parishioners well informed on all that is happening in our Parish.

Here are some recent updates:

Parish Update No 12  (6 March)

Parish Update No 11  (14 February)

Parish Update No 10  (7 February)

Parish Update No 9  (6 December)

Parish Update No 8  (18 October)

Parish Update No 7  (30 August)

Parish Update No 5  (2 August)

Parish Update No 4  (28 June)

Parish Update No 3  (14 June)

All the best, Fr Michael

Holy Door Pilgrimage
