The Community at St Joesph’s welcomes and encourages visitors.
Recently, visitors from Sydney wrote, “We want to pass on a heartfelt thanks for your warm welcome at Saturday Night Mass. Apart from Midnight Mass in Slovenia last Christmas your parish has been the most welcoming we have ever encountered. I thought that you and your parishioners deserved to know how much it meant to two travellers.
Jo & Ros (Sydney)”.
