St Joseph's Mossley 

Will you sign the petition?

Christians round the world who are being persicuted in 2022!

A message from Bishop John....

You may have received a letter from Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) asking that we encourage people to sign a petition calling for more to be done to stop genocidal attacks on Christian communities in Nigeria The recent events have been truly horrific and a new book (“Persecuted and Forgotten) published by ACN on 16th November, speaks of 24 countries where there is persecution of Christians. In almost every case the situation is getting worse.

This I think speaks for itself, please sign the petition.

Fr Michael Lavin

As I take over the role of Parish Priest here at St Joseph's, it would not be right without first thanking my predecessor, the lovely Fr Michael Lavin.  As Fr. Michael retires, I know he leaves you all with many wonderful memories, as he has of you all.  He has spoken to me fondly of his time here in Mossley, as the happiest time in his priesthood.   I am sure I speak on behalf of all of us as wish him well in his retirement, and thank him for everything he has done while PP here.

Please pray for our four new permanent deacons Damien,  William, Davie and John. 

They are some of the first permanent deacons 

for the diocese and will, I am sure have their work cut

out for them.

Live streaming

I will soon be setting up cameras so that the liturgy from St Joseph's can be live streamed and watched from anywhere in the world.  This has proved very popular for funerals, weddings, First Holy Communions etc. where members of the family who live in other countries, or who for whatever reason cannot attend.

It will allow them to watch via the live stream.
