Easter Season
The Easter Season lasts 50 days until
Pentecost which this year is May 23rd.
The weather improves, the days are brighter
and the earth yields its flowers and
vegetables.
Each day we hear of more and more people
receiving the vaccine which brings us hope.
The human cost of this lockdown is
incalculable – we just hope it was all
necessary.
Saint Joseph has been described by Pope
Francis as the Saint of these times, shielding
the child Jesus, working quietly in the
background, the man who did “the ordinary
things of life extraordinarily well” this is the
year of Saint Joseph – please feel free to take
a copy of his Prayer card from the Church.
I will continue the Masses on Facebook as long
as is necessary. We will try to improve the
internet reception from Glenville but it may
not be possible. We will do our best.
Our own Sacristans, volunteer caretakers,
cleaners and our flower people continue in the
background: coming in when the office is
closed and keeping the place clean and
sanitised.

Our office remains open and Breda continues
to come in. Occasionally it may not be possible
to answer the phone and the door, thank you
for your patience. Please use our email as
much as possible.
I thank you so much for your financial support
by envelope or our new online system which is
in continuous use.
Please understand: look after your own needs
first before contributing.


Offertory Collection: February €3110
Online donations to Offertory Collection: January – March €1545
Shrines: February & March €2185

It will be a while yet before christenings can
take place. When they do, I will work with Sr.
Lily about scheduling times and days that will
suit people. Please keep your attendance to as
few as possible. All other changes such as
numbers present for funerals and weddings, as
well as return to public Masses will be
announced as soon as we can.


May Saint Joseph watch over all of us at this time.

Prayer to Saint Joseph
Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer,
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
To you God entrusted his only Son;
In you Mary placed her trust;
With you Christ became Man.
Blessed Joseph, to us too,
Show yourself a father
and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us grace, mercy,
and courage,
and defend us from evil. Amen.
